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.

DNA Tested
Greg Lavoie's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Greg or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Phil Lavoie : Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 37 markers, haplogroup R-FGC50035, Ysearch MVQ7N, FTDNA kit #B198440
  • Greg Lavoie: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 111 markers, haplogroup R-FGC50035, Ysearch GSDR3, FTDNA kit #662409
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Greg Lavoie: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H33a, Mitosearch GSDR3, FTDNA kit #662409
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Greg:

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.

Greg, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Blue Badged "Generous Genealogist". Now you have all three of those badges. You made an impression on others to be helpful and willing to collaborate with them. Great Job!!

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

Hi Greg -

Yes, I meant the father, Habert-3. He can be sourced through the Fichier Origine linked to his son, Habert-1.

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.

Hi Greg, profiles are not yet being removed from the Quebecois category so far as I am aware. I wanted them to be included in whatever subsequent recategorizations and editings will take place for all the profiles currently in the category. I hope that makes sense.

Wish you a Happy New Year. May 2018 bring you all you need to be happy.

Congratulation for adding your contributions in December. Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As I always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree.

Thank you for being a Wikitreer,

Hi again Greg, Thank you for that tip on Louis Eugène! All I had for him was the year. I'm not surprised Hedwige has been referred to as Louise -- I'd seen that on several family trees, but set it aside when her birth record didn't include it. I can't wait to start filling in the family more -- I've mostly been working on my direct ancestors, and progress is slow.
