"Michel Poirier figurait parmi les premiers colons de Beaubassin, où il est décédé. Son fils Michel, né vers 1674, s'est marié vers 1698 à Madeleine Bourgeois, fille de Germain Bourgeois et de Madeleine Dugas. Michel et Madeleine ont eu treize enfants"[1]

Michel Poirier was the son of Michel Poirier, one of the first Acadian settlers in Beaubassin. He was born around the year 1674, and in about 1698 married Madeleine Bourgeois. She was the daughter of Germain Bourgeois and Madeleine Dugas. Michel and Madeleine had thirteen children.

His death date is unknown, but was possibly around 1752.


  • No records could be located in St-Enfant-Jésus-de-la-Pointe-aux-Trembles in 1752 using the records from Généalogie Québec - Registres Drouin.[2]. There are no death location indicated on NosOrigines[3] and it would be strange that Michel would have died in Québec when his wife died several years later still in Acadia[3].
  • Maternal relationship is confirmed to Boudrot-14 by a triangulated group consisting of John Nash GEDmatch A710955, Robert Joseph Landry GEDmatch M695728 and Kevin Lajiness GEDmatch M658673 sharing a 10.8 cM segment on chromosome 1 from 232938635 - 236793313 (10.394 cM), 232938635 - 236788800 Overlap with previous match
