Biography

I was born in Canada, and my father was from Hamiton, Ontario and my mother from Bathurst, New Brunswick. I am a second generation Canadian on my father's side, as both of his parents were born in England. My mother was Acadian, and her family lines can be traced back to the 1600's in what was then Acadie. Her maternal and paternal line can both be traced back to Port Royal (the first successful Acadian settlement), as well as her mother's paternal line.

My father's mother was a Girt from the southeast of England, and her ancestors can also be traced back to the 1600 and 1700's in that part of the world. My father's father had an English mother (with English and Irish ancestors) and a father with African American heritage. My paternal grandfather's ancestors are not as easy to trace, and I will hoping that Wikitree could help with that.

My parents met in France when they were serving in the Canadian Air Force. My father had several postings, and the most westerly and southerly posting was Windsor, Ontario (where I started school), and our most northerly and easterly posting was Gander Newfoundland. When my father retired from the Armed Forces, we settled in Bathurst, New Brunswick. There I finished my high school education.

I attended three universities, Mount Allison, Queens and McGill. I have taught at the university level for over 35 years. I am married with three children. I have one brother, two sisters, and five surviving aunts and uncles. I have not created profiles on Wikitree for any living individual except for myself, as I feel they can create their own profiles if they wish.

I think Wikitree is a wonderful online resource, an I am open to collaborating with others as my time permits. I am not posting any source material except for my own first-hand testimony.

I'm hoping you'll get closer than 29 degrees from Peter Mayhew tomorrow, as I made a connection to Marie Leontine (Stout) Guidry. Happy holidays!

Paul, You haven't entered your mtDNA results on your own profile. You show Y and autosomal results only.

I made a few additions/changes to some of the Bujold/Bugeaud profiles today. I added the sources for my changes. If you have any questions, please ask. Thanks!

How's everything going?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
