Biography

Lianne was born on 7 May 1988, at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba.[1] She is the daughter of Gil Lavoie[1][2] and Janice Jackson.[1][3] She was given her middle names for each of her grandmothers: Elizabeth from Joyce Elizabeth Angus, and Marguerite from Clemence Wilhelmina Marguerite Richard. She grew up in a house in Transcona with her parents and younger sister, Stephanie.

From kindergarden to grade 5, Lianne attended Westview School. At a young age, she started swimming and piano lessons. She no longer takes classes for either of them, but continues to practice them on her own to this day.

The summer before grade 5 (1998), Lianne spent her first week at Camp Arnes, a bible camp north of Gimli. There, she became a Christian, and she went to camp every year for 8 years. Though she still thinks back fondly on her days at Camp Arnes, she converted to Paganism shortly after graduating from high school; this has led to some interesting conversations with past camp counsellors.

From grade 6 to 8, she attended John W. Gunn Middle School. In grade 7, she started tae kwon do classes at the Tae Ryong Park Academy, which she would continue for 3 years.

Lianne took grades 9 to 12 at Transcona Collegiate Institute, where she graduated with honours in 2006. In grade 11, she quit tae kwon do (having reached the level of red belt) in order to take dance classes at Winnipeg Dance Force. She took jazz and hip hop classes there for 4 years.

On 9 September 2006, Lianne started dating her high school friend, Jonathon Laudinsky.

From 2006 to 2010, Lianne studied at the University of Manitoba, where she earned her Bachelor of Computer Science with a minor in philosophy. In her third year of university, she quit her dance classes, and took up belly dancing at the university. She stayed in that class until finishing university, when she switched to taking ballroom dancing with Jonathon.

A few months after finishing university, on 1 April 2011, Lianne and Jonathon moved in together, in an apartment in St. Boniface, the French neighbourhood of the city. On 25 May 2012, they became officially engaged. They got married on 14 September 2013 at Oxford Heights Community Club in Transcona.[4]

Around that time, Lianne returned to school, this time studying Library and Information Technology at Red River College. She graduated at the end of 2016.

Now, Lianne is working her dream job, as the Library Assistant ("Librarian", to the kids and most other people) at a K-8 school. She helps close to 500 kids develop a love of reading. It's basically the best job in the world.

She has been working on her family tree on and off since 2005, when she was assigned a family tree project in grade 11 history class. She occasionally blogs about her research at Stories of a Canadian Family.

Relatives found through WikiTree

This is a list of other WikiTreers with whom I share common ancestry. It's so exciting to find these connections! If I've missed you, let me know!

Famous people I'm related to

I'm not one to go looking for famous relatives, but a few of them have popped up, so I'm gonna go ahead and flaunt them. The following famous people are my distant relatives.

Descent from Charlemagne

I am currently researching the following potential line of descent from Charlemagne to make sure all the links are solid. I'll be starting from the bottom and working upward.

Charlemagne to Philippe II, King of France

The line from Charlemagne to Philippe II is apparently widely agreed upon. I don't have the research experience to do much here, but I plan to improve the WikiTree profiles where I can.

  1. Charlemagne, b. 747
  2. Pepin of Italy, b. 767
  3. Bernard of Italy, b. 797
  4. Pepin de Vermandois, b. 818
  5. Héribert I de Vermandois, b. 848
  6. Beatrice de Vermandois, b. 880
  7. Hugues le Grand, b. 898
  8. Hugues Capet, b. 941
  9. Robert II de France, b. 972
  10. Henri I de France, b. 1008
  11. Philippe I de France, b. 1052
  12. Louis VI de France, b. 1081
  13. Louis VII de France, b. 1120
  14. Philippe II de France, b. 1165

Philippe II, King of France, to Marie-Catherine Baillon

The evidence for this connection is laid out in this journal. I plan to look over it and improve the WikiTree profiles.

  1. Philippe II de France, b. 1165
  2. Marie de France, b. 1198
  3. Elisabeth de Brabant, b. 1213
  4. Mathilde de Cléves
  5. Marguerite de Luxembourg, b. 1265
  6. Jean IV de Ghistelles, b. 1303
  7. Roger de Ghistelles, b. 1338
  8. Isabelle de Ghistelles, b. 1360
  9. Catherine de Gavre d'Escornaix, b. 1405
  10. Guy II le Bouteillier, b. 1430
  11. Jean le Bouteillier, b. 1460
  12. Bénigne le Bouteillier, b. 1507
  13. Miles Maillard, b. 1535
  14. Renée Maillard, b. 1560
  15. Alphonse de Baillon, b. 1620
  16. Marie-Catherine Baillon, b. 1645

Marie-Catherine Baillon to Me

This portion is within Canada, and is probably quite reliable. I plan to go over it and doublecheck the records for each parent-child connection.

  1. Marie-Catherine Baillon, b. 1645
  2. Jean Miville, b. 1672
  3. Bernard Miville, b. 1711 (confirmed with records)
  4. Marie-Françoise Miville, b. 1743 (confirmed with records)
  5. Marie-Francoise Ouellet, b. 1763 (confirmed with records)
  6. Isaac Lavoie, b. 1799 (confirmed with DNA)
  7. Jean-Baptiste Lavoie, b. 1834 (confirmed with DNA)
  8. J.C. Lavoie, b. 1878 (confirmed with DNA)
  9. Louis Lavoie, b. 1916 (confirmed with DNA)
  10. Gil Lavoie (confirmed with DNA)
  11. Lianne Lavoie (me)

Digital Afterlife

It may seem morbid, but in the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up having to be deleted. While I fully intend to be around to manage all my profiles for the next 80 years or so, in the event of my sudden death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following slightly-active WikiTreers in my family, whether or not they are currently on the trusted lists:

I am also the sole profile manager of some profiles in the royal family (mainly Queen Victoria and her descendants). The living ones are private only because WikiTree requires it; they contain only information easily available on the web. They should be managed by the European Aristocrats Project.

Hello! I am interested in joining the team documenting Minnesota cemeteries. I've never used the teams function on WikiTree so could use some guidance.
Hi,

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you konw that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

Hello,

As one of the co-leaders of the European Aristocrats project, I'm messaging to inform you that we are removing the "House Assignments" from our project structure. You are absolutely still welcome to work on the profiles from the families that you chose, we are simply removing the official House Assignments as, for the most part, people choose to work on whichever profiles interest them. We're glad to have you in the project and we hope that you continue to work with us!

Regards, Amy Utting

Hi Lianne. When I saw your Acadian interest I knew we would be related. I want to get Acadian tags for my Acadian ancestors through my mother, Brault-357 and have been trying to find out how to do that.

Also a diaspora tag for myself. I don't know how to do this. Breau-138 is my 6th great grandfather and I wanted tags for my ancestors below him. Several of the Acadian surnames you follow are in my tree. We are 9th cousins 1x removed. https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Relationship&action=calculate&person1_name=Lavoie-74&person2_name=Balluff-21

Thank you! Emm

Hi Lianne,

I haven’t heard back from you about the break up of the United Kingdom Project. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of the country-level projects at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)
