Diane Leroux, Szpivak, Depatie born in 1950s. Woodstock generation. Last of Post-War generations. Retired Registered Nurse, Teacher/Trainer of Adults, & Previously Animal Care Technologist. First married in 1974 to John Ernst Szpivak, two beautiful daughters. Two grandchildren: 18 year old gentleman & his one year old sister. Second marriage in 1993 to Jack Depatie; no issue.

Live just outside of Cornwall, Ontario, Canada in area where many of French-Canadian roots originate.

Getting nowhere with children's Romanian/Hungarian heritage. Getting nowhere with British/Welsh - mother's side. Going berserk with French Canadian ancestry which is leading me all over Europe into royalty, Welsh, British, Irish, German, Italian, Spanish, Danish, etc. ad infinitum. Need to find more confirmation for many of these alleged connections.

I often make errors, for which I apologize. Learning curves get higher as you get older. If you have a problem with anything I say or suggest or do, please let me know immediately so I can correct the error ASAP

Diane's father Leo Leroux ... Diane's mother Joan Evans ...

Hi Diane,

On Lesieur and the article on seigneurial system in New France, not entirely sure where it would fit, I read it and it is quite informative, do you know how to create a free space page? I think if you put the data in such a page and attach it with the tag Category:Quebecois Project it will be useful to others also.

Hi Diane, are you sure that you got the WikiTree ID's correct: "Jehan le Roux (1565 - 1602) (Le_Roux-1287) and Daniel Jacobus le Roux (1767 - 1787) (Le_Roux-585) appear to be the same person. Same spouse, same vitals."? Because these two profiles are some two hundred years apart with totally different first names and other vitals ...

Also I'm confused by your removal of both parents of Prieur-17 here and here without giving a reason or citing sources?

I'm confused by your comment... "Lalonde-426 and Lalonde-365 are not ready to be merged because: same parents, spouse, child. Birth data."... wouldnt the fact that they match be a reason to merge?

Hello Diane: I don't believe are related to my Evans family. According to our family tradition handed down from father to son for the past 300 years is that, "We are Welsh and to be proud of it!' My 8th g grandfather William Evans, Sr. (1622 - 1688) was living and working as a master carpenter in Oxfordshire, Oxon, England in the mid 1600's. I believe (no documented proof) that he moved there from Wales because he was a Quaker (Society of Friends) and was being persecuted by the then King Charles II of England. Oxfordshire had a large supportive Quaker community, and he was a member of the Banbury (Society of Friends) Meeting House. In 1682 he and his family emigrated via the ship Amity to West New Jersey, where he established The Evans Plantation, in Evesham Township, Burlington County, (now Marlton), New Jersey. Best of luck on your family genealogy quest research project.

Diane - for Welsh ancestry, check out - the Rootsweb database for Celtic Royal Genealogy. Also the Bartrum Project:

for Tanguay "online" - see this page & this one with links.

Also, lots of leads can be found in Nos Origines - - but information there should be checked against other sources when possible because much of it is user-submitted.

Cheers, Liz
