Project: Quebecois

Categories: Quebecois Project

Welcome to the Quebecois WikiProject!


The Quebecois project covers the French settlers who settled in Quebec in the 17th century.

Group members take primary responsibility for a specific Quebec person or family, and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information.

Profiles managed by this project are listed at Category:Quebecois Project.

Communicating with the project:

  • Google+ Community - For discussions of interest to Quebec genealogists, particularly members of this project but also non-WikiTreers who do Quebec research.
  • quebecois tag on G2G - For discussions involving the broader WikiTree community, as well as any discussions that will not interest non-WikiTreers.

  • Jerry Baraboo- It is a pleasure being on this team. I am correcting Quebecois circa and category identification on profiles. Some of my Quebecois family surnames I am currently working on are Barbeau, Barbot, Baribeau, Baribault and Menard. I am profiling French-Canadian ancestry of Door County, Wisconsin. I have been adding and sourcing the term "Quebec, Canada, Nouvelle France to profiles before 1763 in the Quebec, St-Lawrence Valley area. Baraboo-1 15:27, 7 December 2016 (EST)

  • Deborah Collier - I am completing work on sources for the Generation 1 ancestor of the Réaume lineage - René Réaume. I have located and am writing the biography for the youngest Filles du Roi to marry (at the age of 13) in Quebec in 1665 - Marie Chevreau. I am attempting to find some reliable sources for the Pitre family (Jean-Baptiste, Joseph, Marie and Elisabeth Pitre Vandandaique) that have no sources.
  • Dawn Ellis - so far...Fuseau dit Roch, Tellier, Ferland, Gervaise, Serre dit St-Jean, Beaugrand, Thibodeau

  • Claude Emond - Emond on my side, actually Edmunds from Irish descent and Fournier on my wife's side.
  • Chris Hampson - I initially got my badge because I was working on some Quebecois incidental to my own family, but I broke through a brick wall and discovered that a g-g-grandfather was really an Ethier (he had only been known as a Hickey). So now I'm connecting him to the existing profiles.
  • John Hebert - Presently cleaning up and adding sources and images to 818 profiles in my ancestry that qualify for Quebecois Project. Some family names, Hebert, Patenaude, Morin, Faucher, Charron, Joliet, Aubuchon, Baillargeon, Belanger, Benoit, Bouchard, Boucher.....
  • R. G. Heroux - working on hundreds *sigh* of 17th century families; need to connect all children to their parents. Need additional lifetime to complete.

  • James LaLone - Listing of all my direct F-C ancestor's surnames on my profile as well as some I collect all male lines in certain families, especially the TREMBLAY family (database of almost 42,000 names).
  • Claude Lambert - Given that ancestors from France who immigrated to Canada, including my parents' direct ancestors, now have some 1.5 million descendants in Canada alone, Percherons may be especially field of interest to pursue.

  • Stephen Lapointe - Lapointe, Audet dit Lapointe, Sasseville, Jean, Tremblay, Lalonde, Rapin

  • Bill Martin - I have grandsons whose father is French-Canadian. I've traced thousands of their grandparents, and decided adding them here would be a worthwhile project.
  • Michelle Robillard - Descendants of Claude Robillard - I would like to clean up/add biographies & sources. Any help would be appreciated as I haven't much time to do so.
  • Daniel Ryder -
  • Louise St-Amour - Christin dit St-Amour, Chaput, Provost, Fournier dit Préfontaine and many more

  • Gaston Tardif - While still working on building my family tree - now 98% more than 1000 profiles completed to 10 generations, I am working on completing at least a basic biography for each one, refering and linking to the church records whenever I can find them. Pretty difficult task, considering the state of the old church archives. One profile at the time.... As it is said in French: <Patience et longueur de temps font plus que force et que rage>.
  • Karen Tobo - I'm about 1/16 French-American through Emily Burdalow (baptised Amelie Victoire Bordeleau) of Vincennes, Indiana, and will work on my Baillargeon, Bonneau, Bordeleau, Cardinal, Caron, Chartier, Girardeau, Lacoste dit Languedoc, Perron, Poitevin dit Arpin, Tougas dit Laviolette, and Vallée ancestors as able
  • AL Wellman - tracing French-Canadien ancestry of Pepin County, Wisconsin, through the migration from Quebec via Vermont and New York.
  • Jess White-Phillip -Brunet dit L'Etang/L'Estang and families they married. I'll also be trying to identify and bridge Acadian-Quebecois familial connections (Pre and Post Derangement). Also interested in Percheron emigrants and Filles-de-Roi.
  • Jim Wiborg - Adding to the Riopelle line. Still new to Wikitree, so I'll add more as I progress.

Intend to move on to the Benoit line after that. At present, I've mostly added French members of the Crevier line before they came to Canada.
  • Summer Binkley Orman - working on the Demonbreun line of Jacqués Timothé Boucher, Sieur de Montbrun, also known as Timothy Demonbreun, first citizen of Nashville, Tennessee, USA. I'm also beginning an exploration on the Chadoin line of my ancestry (have not added to WikiTree yet).
  • Michael Ross - I work mainly, but not solely, on the families of the St. Joseph-de-Maskinongé parish, and on the following families especially (both in and outside this parish): Ross, Lemire, Archambault, Nault/Nau/Naud, Tétreault/Tétreau/Tatrow, Dupuis, Vallière, and Vanasse (Vanasse-dit-Bastien).
  • Hélène Daigneault Je travaille sur les lignées Daigneault/Daniau-dit-Laprise/Daniau, Lachance/Pépin-dit-Lachance/Pépin, Désilets/Desrosiers-dit-des-Ilets/Deronzier, et Lacasse/Cassé/Case, les comparant avec les donnés dans Geni, de mon profil ou d'autres. J'aime bien corriger les accents, fautes d'orthographe, et les lieux-dits. J'aime spécifier les endroits de naissance, mariage et décès selon les dates historiques, par exemple: Nouvelle France avant 1763, Bas-Canada/Haut-Canada après 1763 suite à la bataille des Plaines d'Abraham, et province de Québec - Canada après 1867, donc de la Confédération à nos jours (le Canada qu'on connaît aujourd'hui). Je m'intéresse aussi à tous les liens, possibles ou réels, entre ma famille et les nations autochnotes, et ma famille et le clan Fraser d'Ecosse.
  • Darrell Parker -
  • Jacinthe Boudreau - Working on my paternal line, Boudreau and my maternal line, Lacombe. Also looking into Daignault, Trahan and Leblanc lines to further my tree as far back as possible. My Boudreau line is complete all the way to Michel Boudrot. I'm just waiting for my GEDCOM file to be approved and uploaded in order to confirm what's already there.
  • Paul Chisarik - I'm working primarily on my maternal grandmother's line which goes back to Cloutier, Dupont, Guyon, Jarousseau, Leblond, LeClerc, Lereau and Robin (among many others) and eventually ended up immigrating to Connecticut in the 1800's.


General project goals coming soon...

To Do List

This table is for specific items that need to be completed, not for general goals like "merge all New France duplicates". If you don't feel comfortable editing a wiki table but want to add a to-do item to the list, please list it below the table and Guy will integrate it into the table.

To volunteer to work on an item, find where it says Volunteer Needed right beneath the task you want to work on. Replace Volunteer Needed with your name and WikiTree ID (be careful not to remove the | at the start of the line).
