  • Provide correct, sourced and as complete as possible ancestries for migrating ancestors.
  • Document and disconnect spurious ancestors.


To join this team, it is necessary to:


Dubious lines needing review

Below is a list of profiles whose parents and further ancestors appear dubious.

Profile Progress G2G Notes
Helene Comtee
Jean ChabotFixed source confirming parents
Jacques GuyonFixed
Estienne Bourdon Sources show attached mother is incorrect
Pierre Lafond Father and most children are problematic
Claude Hubert Unsourced parents
Geneviève Gaugé Unsourced parents
Marie Boileau All paternal GGParents unsourced
Grégoire Vivier Problematic wife and child attached, daughter (FàM) now has sources, both she and brother Pierre Vivier have marriage record images visible on profiles. The extra wife with Barrier child is totally unsourced. LNAB also needs some research for him, daughter's name goes many ways. Surces added to relevant profiles
Mathurin Roy Ancestors in Saint-Malo are probably not his.
Jean Soucy Unsourced parents
Michelle Catherine Paillard
Pierre ParentFixed Profiles previously connected as grandparents and further ancestors lived in the 19th and 20th centuries. Also fixed the conflation with André Coudray's parents
Xainte Aubry Grandmother of Sainte Dupont
Simon Savart Paternal ancestors.
René Racine This man's parents are unknown per Fichier Origine
Noël Simard Ancestors beyond grandparents are unsourced and dubious.
Jean Giroux Parents shown are Asselin (immigrant David's parents).
Jean Paddoc Spurious Huguenot ancestor, almost certainly an Anjou creation.
Julienne-Anne Dumont Poorly sourced maternal noble lineage
Jacques David Dubious, poorly sourced lineage to Julien David (1175-1240)
Marie Couture Fixed Almost certainly belongs to wrong family group, should be disconnected from parents
Joseph Bonneau Bonneau grandparents actually belong to his wife; i.e. Duchesne.
Elizabeth Ann BeauchampMostly fixed, still attached as mother of Peter Rucker as sibling of Catholic Jacques Beauchamp dit le grand, somehow is born in Poitou-Charentes, marries a Protestant in Bavaria, and then has a son who settles in Virginia.
Francois DenysFichier Origine makes no mention of this supposed son of Simon Denis de la Trinité (1600-1678), profile claims that he died in Canada in about 1721 but no evidence exists of him in the parish registers.

Lines lacking sources

The lines below are supposed correct but need sources and clean-up to look good:


  • Catherine de Belleau: Tested maternal royal gateway claim and found the lineage problematic. See Jean de Goussencourt for research note. Also left note on paternal grandfather's profile about possible family connections.

Grégoire Vivier and his wife Clémence or Clémentine now have sources, extra wife and child unsourced with wrong name. Seems to come from a Familysearch tree.
