How I spend my time around WikiTree:

  • Acadians Project co-leader with Cindy Bourque Cooper: Monitoring the watchlist several days a week, finding and merging duplicates, clearing the suggestions list, answering questions on G2G and in Google Groups, helping improve profiles, making sure that every Acadian listed on the 1752 census on Isle Saint-Jean (present-day PEI) has a profile.
  • Company of Frenchmen: With the help of Judith (Bernier) Brandau and her wonderful writing abilities, documenting the profiles of Acadian militiamen who, under the command of Jonathan Eddy (Massachusetts-born) planned to attack Fort Cumberland to make Nova Scotia the 14th American State. That didn’t end well!
  • Arborists Unmerged Match Challenge: Participating in Gillian Thomas’ project in this Year of Accuracy of reducing the total number of Unmerged matches. Focusing on the profiles managed by Acadians Project, and on the areas of New Brunswick and Quebec. I wish there were more hours in a day to do more of these. It is a satisfying and worthwhile task.
  • WikiTree Thons: I love participating in thons with the Nor’Easters team.
  • New Brunswick WWI Soldiers: Contributing to Doug McCallum's project of keeping a record of World War I soldiers added to WikiTree that came from New Brunswick, Canada. My focus is on creating and documenting profiles of Acadian soldiers.

Hi Gisèle,

Thanks for your research and for adding to the profiles of Michel Bergeron (abt.1736-1832) and Madeleine Bourg (abt.1741-1800). I noticed that while doing so, you removed several sources from the profiles of Michel Bergeron (abt.1736-1832) and Madeleine Bourg (abt.1741-1800) that were cited there supporting the relationships between Michel, Madeleine, and their relatives. I plan to add those sources back into their profiles so that we will continue to have sources cited in their profiles for the relationships that we're asserting in those profiles.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you'd like to discuss further.

Thanks again, Rick

Hi Rick,

Thanks for reaching out. One of our guidelines at Acadians Project is to remove duplicated information about children that already appear in their profiles. This helps make biographies more concise and leaves more room for adding new information in the future. Before removing the sources from their parents’ profiles, I made sure they were already in theirs. I believed that they were sufficient in demonstrating the family relationships. The only inconvenience is to have to go to each profile to see the sources, instead of having everything on one page. Now you put in a lot of work in finding and formatting those excellent sources and we really appreciate your many contributions to Acadian profiles. There is no law against having them on the parents’ pages. Please feel free to add them back to the profiles if you wish. Clicking on the latest change and then "Restore data" should do the trick. Thanks for your collaboration, Gisèle

posted by Gisèle Cormier
Thanks for clarifying. I will add those sources back in. I don't consider those sources as duplicated information. They are sources that provide information/evidence about a relationship between multiple individuals, and I believe that they should be cited on the profiles of the multiple individuals. Similarly, for a source that provides information about a spousal relationship between two individuals (a marriage record, for example), I believe that such a source should be cited on the profiles of each of the spouses, not just one spouse. Doing so allows us to reference the source within each profile from any statement of fact that the source supports and that is being asserted in each profile. This helps us to get closer to the WikiTree goal of every fact relating to a person having a source reference.

Thanks again for all your help!

Bonjour Gisèle,

J'ai créé le profil de Charles Edeline (1758-), marié à Anastasie Gaudet, le 1778-10-19, à St-Charles-sur-Richelieu, fille de Charles Gaudet et Marie Cormier. Mais aucun registre de Baptème avec le prenom "Anastasie", mais je me demandais s'il est possible que "Anastasie" soit Marie Magdeleine Gaudet, née le 1745-02-16? J'ai le registre de Baptème sur généalogie Québec :

Merci d'avance!

Bonjour Josée,

PRDH (Programme de Recherche en Démographie Historique, Université de Montréal) et le chercheur Marcel Walter Landry indiquent qu'Anastasie, épouse de Charles Edeline, est née vers 1756, donc ce n'était pas Marie Madeleine. Les recensements de 1752 et 1755 démontrent qu'il y avait 3 filles et 3 garçons dans la maisonnée, alors que le couple a eu 7 enfants (ou 8 selon Landry), donc Anastasie n'était pas encore née. Quant à l'acte de baptême pour Marie Madeleine née le 16 février 1745 il irait dans ce profil

Awesome job on the profiles associated with Breau-554, they look great.

Giselle, please contact me re Anselme Blanchard children; I suspect Jerome and Jerome Sr are the same person, and if so probably need to eliminate one of them (duplicate:) thanks, Carolyn Marks
Thank-you for adding Marie Genevieve Desailliers as Pierre Cellier's daughter.
posted by G (Rochette) Keefe
Hello Gisele,

I will merge Pierre Cellier-134 with Pierre Desailliers-4, you're right same person, but with many different sur name spellings. How do add Marie Genevieve Desailliers as his daughter? She was born February 20, 1780, Quebec, Canada, d- February 19, 1854, Quebec, canada Gail

posted by G (Rochette) Keefe
Thanks for accepting the merge, and taking care of it. Marie Geneviève is now connected to him. I removed the profile protection so if you want to add more children you can do so.
posted by Gisèle Cormier
Thank you for proposing merges with me! It's great to see the information. I think I approved the matches, but I'm not totally sure because I deleted the emails after I thought I merged them, but then realized that sometimes the merge requires scrolling to the bottom and confirming. Oops! Sorry I am such a newbie!
posted by Elizabeth O'Leary
No worries Elizabeth. We've all been there and done that! Anyway merges are approved by default after 30 days. Thank you for spotting duplicates and proposing merges. Have fun discovering your Acadian lineage. If you need any help, do not hesitate to ask me, Cindy Bourque Cooper or Jackie Girouard, members of the Acadians Project team. We are always happy to help.

Thank you for the proposed merges (Pineau). I am trying to continue my mother's research but don't have a lot of time to dedicate to it yet. If I did anything incorrectly please let me know for next time or if there is something that I can fix now.
All’s good Jacquie. Thanks for your contributions to WikiTree. Wishing you more free time in the future to explore your ancestry!

Thanks Gisèle for the edits you've made on a number of my Nova Scotian Acadian profiles (especially broken links). These were among the very first profiles I created and I keep meaning to go back and add better sources and bios... Once I finish my current projects.


posted by Brad Foley
You’re welcome Brad. The Acadians Project had over 1000 broken links to correct. We’re now down to about 300. Slowly but surely getting there!

Thank you Gisèle for all of your help in unlocking the mystery of Marcelline! My DNA test may have helped give us the confirmation we needed, but it wouldn't have been enough on its own. It was the expert tips that you and Marcel provided that "sealed the deal"! The Acadian side of my tree is now looking so much more complete! Appreciate you both for sharing your knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm! :)

Hi Gisèle, could you check out the baptism record of Joseph LeBlanc ( for me. I'm assuming your French is better than mine (it can't be much worse!). It appears they performed the baptism service "on the body of" which is different wording than most of the other services. I'm guessing this Joseph may have died at four months and seven days and was baptized before he was buried? I'm not sure if this was a common practice but it looks like the service above his was similar, performed on the body months after birth. Seems there might be something strange going on here. I posted this on his profile before I remembered you won't get notified of that, oops.

Thanks, Paul
