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.

Online Research Methods


  • Genealogy Quebec Includes the LAFRANCE collection of indexed Drouin images, as well as many other valuable resources in researching French Canadian ancestry.
  • PRDH Incredible resource for French Canadian ancestors through the early 1800s. The descent and ancestry functions from each person's page makes it very easy to trace families during the period covered.
  • BMS 2000 Extremely helpful for looking up ancestors and cousins who are not yet available on PRDH or Genealogy Quebec.
  • Has the Drouin collection through 1940 for most villages.
  • Fichier Origine Good resource for learning about the French origins of French Canadian pioneers.
  • Les noms de famille au Québec : aspects statistiques et distribution spatiale The annexes have a comprehensive list of the most common surnames in Quebec, as well as density maps for many of the most common ones


  • WikiTree: France genealogical resources The French Roots project on WikiTree maintains a list of links to the departmental and municipal archives.
  • Geneanet: Search Your French Ancestors This site is best known for its user-created genealogies. Given its popularity in France and in Benelux countries, it can be helpful for beginning one's search. Public genealogies, of course, need to be verified by reviewing the archives.
  • Filae Filae is best known for having a significant portion of the French civil registrations indexed.


  • FamilySearch Has a fairly comprehensive set of civil registrations, from its inception in the 1790s to the early 1900s. FamilySearch has also begun digitizing its collection of microfilm covering the older parish registers that were maintained in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Just post a G2G from Noel-114 suggesting to disconnect his parents, sort of like I did with Philibert Couillaud. Ron Heroux commented that the connection was ridiculous one year and a half ago and no one moved. You use Ron's comment for inspiration if necessary. Or, if you don't want to do that, just post on the profile that since nothing changed since Ron's comment, you're disconnecting the parents.

Hi Greg! It looks as if we are distant cousins; the global connections tool (which I'm completely in love with) shows we are 29 degrees apart. I love how much research you've done!

Hi Greg,

Please check my comments on Petit-208 and linked parents. The "parents" were added by Warner-5710 and this alone makes them suspect. Just give it a few days and if the current profile manager does not react, you should remove the parents.

Hi Greg! Our connection is 19 degrees and it is green all the way - we are 9th cousins. We are both descended from 3 different couples back in the early days of New France.

Nice to meet you, cousin! Cheers Shirlea

Update on Abraham Martin: I cleaned up the profile of his pseudo-brother, Antoine. Antoine is the one who was the son of Jean Martin and Isabelle Côté (I'm not sure what to think of the sources, though Francogene often gives references). Of course Abraham and Antoine can't be brothers, since one was born in Montpellier and the other in Normandy.
