The majority of my roots originate in France then on to Canada. I have 29 Acadian First Families as ancestors. Through my paternal great grandmother I also have ancestors from England and Ireland.
I am now hooked on genealogy and was so happy to find WikiTree where I can see how every one of us come together.
I am the family tree editor for my parents who have both done the Ancestry DNA Test. Their recently updated (AUG 2020) Ancestry DNA Results Summary are as follows: Dad is 90% French, 10% Ireland, additional communities include Southeastern Québec French Settlers, Bas-Saint-Laurent and Nothern Maine French Settlers. Mom is 86% French and is fluent in the language, 6% England and Northwestern Europe, 5% Germanic Europe, 3% Ireland, additional communities include Southeastern Québec French Settlers, Bas-Saint-Laurent and Nothern Maine French Settlers, and Bas-Saint Laurent French Settlers.
My family is proud of our French Canadian roots.
I have listed some of my Acadian ancestors and according to the WikiTree Ancestor Explorer, I also have 105 Filles du Roi or Filles à marier ancestors.
The following are some of my Acadian ancestors:
