Thanks for catching the obvious and glaring disconnect on Menoux-2, DOB and marriage date. That bit put me to onto looking for more than one Alain born in different generations. I still don't have it straightened out, but I'm working on it! I love the excellence of your work. MaryAnn

posted by MaryAnn Blakeman
Thanks for your cooperation and for pursuing your research on the Menoux family. I was wondering if Marie-Josèphe could have gone to Louisiana after Saint-Domingue, like many Acadian exiles did, and married Menoux there, but Steven Cormier in Acadians in Gray does not list Marie-Josèphe Girouard among the Acadians who ended up in Louisiana, and does not mention Menoux.
posted by Gisèle Cormier
Thank you for your recent additions to Barbe Bajolet. I have Cormiers in my tree so we're probably cousins, albeit quite a few generations ago. I'm descended from Barbe Bajolet through both my parents in Louisiana. There is so much more detail since the last time I checked, particularly her parents names. I should see where your tree intersects mine. It would be before the French expulsion from Acadia. Anyway, I'm grateful for your contributions.
posted by Anonymous Pigman
Thanks for your kind words. I'm always thrilled to meet cousins from Louisiana. We are 6th cousins, once removed, and share this ancestor: François (Leger) Léger (1714-bef.1789).

Kind regards, Gisèle

Hi Gisèle,

Just a note to say that I continue to admire your excellence and dedication to improving the Acadian profiles. Thanks for all that you do, day in and day out.

Thanks, Ralph. Right back at you. Your steady contributions, attention to detail, and many encouragements (the thank yous spur us on) are greatly appreciated. I truly enjoy seeing your daily presence on the Acadians watchlist. Keep up the great work.

Good morning Gisèle, I was watching THE TREETOPS and I was intrigued by your profile, so I went to check if we share our DNA. I saw that we share 7,3 cM if I'm not mistaken on chromosome 21, and also 7,9 cM on the X. Now I wonder who our common ancestor could have been? I simply wanted to tell you. Have a great day.

Good morning Марина! This is a wonderful surprise, to share DNA with someone born in Ukraine. Most of my ancestors come from northwestern Europe, mostly France, and came to Acadia in the early 1600s, except for one born in Ireland. Unfortunately, for the majority of them, the records in France have been lost or not yet found, so I can't trace my lineage in Europe. Let's hope that one day we can find our common ancestor thanks to DNA results. Have a great day too. Very nice to meet you.
posted by Gisèle Cormier
Thank you very much Gisèle for answering me, of course, we hope to find our common ancestor one day. Have a great day and blessed life.
Gisele, Thank-you for the information on Abraham Dugas abt 1616 he is my 9th GGf. It's interesting to read about my ancestors.

Bonjour Gisèle, I am Acadian and would like to become part of the Acadians project how do I go about doing this? I have checked on gedmatch and we as I suspected are cousins (we also match on 23and me) although hard to tell how without comparing family trees looking forward to hearing from you

Wela’lin Merci Thank You Eddie

Bonjour cousin. I'm a co-leader of the Acadians Project. Thank you for your interest in the Acadians. We love finding new cousins and friends! We have three ways to participate.

Level 1. Add Acadia to your followed tags for G2G. I see you've done that already. Good!

Level 2. Join the Google Group. Here you will receive communications about the project. and notices about certain activities on the project. You may want only a daily summary which is an option. If you want to be in the Google Group, please send me your email and I will add you.

Level 3. Join the Acadians Project

Here are the Project Membership Requirements. Becoming a project member means you are ready to make additional contributions to the broader set of Acadian profiles beyond your own family.

1. You have signed the Honor Code 2. Have been a member for at least 30 days 3. Have made at least 100 contributions, including some for Acadians 4. Are Pre-1700 certified (many Acadians are pre-1700) 5. Willing to improve profiles of Acadians - choose one of the areas in the We Need Help With Page

There are a few things I would suggest. First you probably want to connect with your own family and your Acadian ancestors. Here is a page that could help you get started: This way, we will be able to see where we connect, and you will also connect with many other cousins. Remember that there is only one profile per person in WikiTree, and we all share the same ancestors. It is important to avoid creating duplicates.

Second, as you start to connect to your family, you are free to add information to any open profile (all the Acadian profiles are old enough that they are open). You don't have to be a part of a project to do that, but you will need to have taken the pre-1700 certification to make edits on older profiles.

After you get some practice with WikiTree, then you might want to start helping with OTHER Acadians in the project. That would be a good time to check back with us about becoming a project member and finding a good focus for your work, as members contribute to expand the Acadian population and fill in information on them, above and beyond their own family.

In the meantime, I can help you connect to your Acadian ancestors. I added some sources to this profile: Camus-93. Let me know if they are for the right family, and we can work together from there. If you ever have questions or need help on something Acadian, please don't hesitate to contact me.

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!

posted by Josée Bouthillette
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 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
