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. One has to go back to the 17th century in order to find nobility among my direct ancestors, and further still to the 13th century to find purported royal ancestors. 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.

Greg, Susie removed me of the Canadian project although I replied I would like to continue to stay in the project. It seems I'm not the only one who has this problem with her. Susie says I didn't reply. I don't know what the problem is.

I copied the message I sent her back now when I saw she removed me from the project.

"Susie, I replied back! And I replied that I would like to continue to be in the project. In the Source-A-Thon I sourced Canadian profiles. I will copy this message now also to Greg. I want to stay in the project!"

Thanks for solving that Jelena

Hi Greg,

Did you remove yourself from G. Simenon's trusted list? I can't remember having done such a thing (if I did, it was an error). I have set the profile to Public. He was a notable, after all. Isabelle

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 in front of their permalink, like this: It should work. (Thanks for the improvement on the Genet profiles, by the way!) Isabelle
