Category: Collineau de Montaguerre Unknowns

Categories: France Fabricated Genealogies | Uncertain Existence

This category is a holding pen for profiles named "Collineau de Montaguerre", "De Montaguerre" or variants of these names. It also includes the purported spouses found linked to the name.

The Collineau de Montaguerre family is elusive. There was a semi-notable Collineau de Montaguerre in the French Antilles in the 17th or 18th century. In reality, there are very few traces of this family ; no story, no timeline. Therefore, the prevalence of this name for early, basically unknown ancestors of Canadian emigrants looks like a hoax, or a joke.

"Collineau de Montaguerre" profiles are usually unsourced, contain no information to help indentify them, and tend to be earliest ancestors of lines, or attached to dubious genealogies. They cannot be traced to any reliable source or documentation. It has been speculated that they were originally place-holders for "brick walls" in the ancestry of some emigrants to New France, and were then propagated without explanation from an internet genealogy website to another.

Because the information contained in these profiles is unreliable or false, this category has been placed under Frauds and Fabrications. This is not ideal, as they are probably not voluntary fabrications.

If you do find a source for one of these profiles, or information that would allow to identify these ancestors, please start a G2G discussion. Thank you.
