Hi Cindy,

I noticed that you changed the birth location field on Anenontha-1. The Pays d’en Haut was claimed as part of New France, but was west of the settlement area along the Saint Lawrence River, and, as I understand it, not part of Canada itself. You can find more information on the associated Wikipedia page:

Hi, Greg, please refer to the first sentence of your link that says "The Pays d'en Haut (French: [pɛ.i dɑ̃ o]; Upper Country) was a territory of New France covering the regions of North America located west of Montreal. The vast territory included most of the Great Lakes region," However, if as you mention, she was born closer to the Saint Lawrence river, that was also New France according to this wikipedia article: "Between 1634 and 1655, the Jesuits established a home and a settlement that was destroyed in 1643 during the time when the missions in New France along the Saint Lawrence River. They soon moved deeper into the colony’s territory in order to live with and convert the local Huron population." She was born in this timeframe. The map from Wikipedia is 100 years later

So to correct it I should remove Canada, but would leave Nouvelle-France.

Hi Cindy,

Have created the French version of Great Upheaval category, set to mirror, takes a bit of time for the program to implement, but once done people tagged with either language category will show up in both lists.

Meanwhile, taking a look at Category:Acadians, I noticed that it had among its parent categories Category:17th Century American Immigration. While many Acadians wound up in Louisiana, it somehow seems wrong to me to have Acadians under that category, since 17th century ... appears to deal with immigrants to what is now the USA only. What's the logic in this, do you know?


posted by Danielle Liard
Hi Danielle, I'm responding to your post on Cindy's behalf. The "17th Century American Immigration" category, as currently used, doesn't really seem appropriate for Acadian profiles. An explanatory note on the category page that says "Immigration to European colonies in North America during the 1600s" could be causing confusion. That makes it sound applicable to European immigration to ALL of North America, which would also apply to Quebec and Acadia. Perhaps that was the original intent for the category, but everything else in that category is only associated with current-day U.S. colonies. Unless the Acadians and/or Quebecois projects want to set up new categories just for their original European immigrants (which would include 1500s and 1600s), the note should be modified. Either way, it is wrong to include "Acadians" under the category.
thanks Joyce, thought it was odd, have removed it as parent category for Acadians,

There is already a sub-category of Acadians who wound up in Louisiana (Category:Acadian Immigrants to Louisiana). That one makes sense as sub of Category:Acadians.

Will let the people working on US immigration categories sort out anything else in their lines, there has been major reworking of migration categories last year, the dust hasn't settled yet.  :-D And there do exist migration categories for us Frenchies already.

Hi Cindy,

Of possible interest to Acadian project:

This girl gets contracted in 1686 by the Compagnie de L'Acadie per my sources. Awaiting a reply from one source as to whether or not he has data on her departure for Acadie. Maybe you have other data on her.

HI, Danielle, thanks for the info. I found an Andree in 1693 with no last name. Left details about spouse and a link on Pinel-65.

Hi Cindy

re Pierre Boucher dit Desrosiers, Acadian project box would not belong on him. Isn't there a category for Grand-Pré, Acadie? That would be the appropriate handling of this to my mind, since he married there. He was not an Acadian at all from what I can tell.

hi Cindy,

Yes, Filles à marier are also all under project PPP. The Fille du roy in question, I forget which one she was, the only one I know of who went to Acadie. Both projects are managers on her.


posted by Danielle Liard
Hi Cindy,

Just to let you know, ALL the Filles du roy are under PPP, by decision made about them quite some time ago. So no need to add reason for PPP on profiles.

lol, hi cousin

Next time you want to do a sex change operation on me, let me know in advance.  :D

Took out the wrong category and added some contract data from this side of the equation on there.

Since he actually came here first, you might consider adding the category Portuguese immigrants to Canada, Nouvelle-France (if it exists), but it's no big deal. He didn't stay here.
