Biography

A New Hampshire native, I was born and raised on the West Side of Manchester. I moved away for a time during my college years, first attending and graduating from University of Rochester with a Bachelor of Arts in Financial Economics and Political Science. I then attended the McCombs Schools of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned a Master in Professional Accounting degree. I am currently a licensed Certified Public Accountant and work in the accounting/finance sector.

I've had an interest in my family tree for many years. My family had constructed a rudimentary tree when I was young that included most of my great-great grandparents. I began researching more earnestly in June 2015, shortly after my grandmother, Irene (Labrecque) Cuvellier, passed away.

A review of my ancestors during the past several centuries demonstrates that most of my direct ancestors were commoners. Most were either farmers or weavers (the latter being quite prevalent in France and Belgium). One has to go back to the 17th century in order to find nobility among my direct ancestors, and further back still to the 13th century to find purported royal ancestors. My royal gateways make it possible to show plausible lineages going back to at least the 7th century. Results from Y chromosomal testing confirm my lineage genetically along the direct paternal line going back to the early 17th century.[1]

The table below provides information on my progress in identifying my direct ancestors. The oldest generation comprising a full set of my direct ancestors is my 4th great-grandparents, which I completed in May 2017.

Hello Greg, according to the Relationship Finder we are 9th Cousins, both Descended from Jean Plante, your 9th Great-Grandfather, and my 8th. It is Always nice to connect with new Cousins, no matter how distant.

Thanks for your note, Greg - I'm nearly there with the Sisley connection now, but for today I'll concentrate on sourcing as many of the Freitag profiles as I can. After that there is hope of connecting Alexandre Millerand and Augustin Fresnel as well.

Hi Greg -

The permalinks provided by the Yvelines archives are so far the only ones I've seen that don't work (and they used to work). You've got to add http://archives.yvelines.fr in front of their permalink, like this: http://archives.yvelines.fr/ark:/36937/s0053cfbb8000d55/53cfbb809733b It should work. (Thanks for the improvement on the Genet profiles, by the way!) Isabelle

Thank you for the information on getting Ukrainian data. I had assumed this was always going to be a dead-end. It has been years since I have been to the family history center. Do the translate the information? I have gotten DNA matches on my mother's side but there is no information to connect the trees.
