Research Needed:

To help us build and maintain the Acadians Project resource entitled FRENCH ORIGINS OF ACADIANS, kindly include a comment if and when you can contribute information on individuals or names referenced in the following two groups:

Group 1 - Place Names in Review - Research or sourcing required for Acadian pioneers noted

The following location names are associated with certain Acadian profiles, but there is either no source information (such as baptismal or marriage records) to establish accuracy, or it is not considered confirmed:

- Albourg, Lot [Associated profile Cirier-10]
- Auch, Béarn (today Gers) [Associated profile is Varrieu-1 - no birth record but place of origin may be reflected in marriage record - to be confirmed]
- Bourges, Berry (today Cher) [Associated profile Poirier-456] (death location, to be confimed)
- Carignan ( __ ) [Associated profile Léger-125] (profile cites birth location as Carignan without province, source uncertain)
- Charolais, Mayenne and Courcelles [Places associated with De_Salins-27 and potentially her daughter Motin_de_Reux-1, who was a notable figure in Acadie (origin locations need research)]
- Chatelnault, Autun, Bourgogne - [Associated with Segoilot-1 - note: record from LaRoque 1752 census indicates Casthelineau, Bourgogne - not yet identified]
- Coutran, La Ferté-Gaucher, Champagne (today Seine-et-Marne) - [Associated with Bourgeois-333 but profile lacks confirmation or sufficient source information]
- Demaiseray or Demai, as a parish within the diocese of Le Mans is associated with a transcript of the marriage record for Poupart-70 but no such place name has yet been identified
- Granville, Normandie is associated with Charpentier-343 [Le_Buffe-2]] Villedieu-3 (and Hinard-2 see note below) - Granville is in table but these persons lack clear source documents related to birth/origins (profiles categorized and noted)
- Gueyrande, près de Nantes - is presumably Guérande, which is West of Nantes, Bretagne (today Loire-Atlantique) [Associated profile is Lamontagne-92 but birth place is to be verified]
- La Chapelle, Bretagne (today Côtes-d'Armor, formerly Côtes-du-Nord) is associated with Thibodeau-1159 but source information regarding the French location is unclear, and there are multiple places named La Chapelle in Bretagne - to be reviewed
- La Chapelle, ___, France (unknown province) is associated with Marcadet-6 - source information regarding the French location is unclear, and there are multiple places named La Chapelle in France - to be reviewed
- "La Mettrie Pommerais, Plouer-sur-Rance," Bretagne is associated with profile Aucoin-5 and others] - potentially should be La Metrie-Paumerais - a hamlet incorporated into Plouër
- "La Moissays, Ille-et-Vilaine" is noted in connection with birth of Thibodeau-7 but birth location does not have source - profile categorized for follow-up
- Languenan, Bretagne (today Côtes-d'Armor) is associated with Jehannot-1 but source for French birth location requires review
- Lorraine, France (today multiple départements) is associated with Jacquemin-18 but location uncertain
- Loudun, Poitou (today Vienne) is a potential birth location associated with several Acadian profiles including Gaudet-21, Lejeune-21, Colleson-1, Lambert-1589, and Serreau-2 but these remain to be confirmed with respect to birth place information and source records
- "Moulins, Tulle, Limousin" is associated with Part-1; it has been suggested that this might be referring to Mouzens, but that is just east of Toulouse and several hundred kilometres south of Tulle; it is noted that there is also town of Moulins, about 200km northeast of Tulle (in what was the province of Bourbonnais) - profile categorized as requiring research to confirm birth place
- "Morègue" or "Morseque", diocèse Arles - likely Martigues, Provence - asociated with profle Nuirat-3 but needs to be confirmed
- "Ozan, Auvergne" is associated with profile Leblanc-8164 - the marriage record appears to read "Ozan" in Auvergne, but no such town has been located in Auvergne, although there is an Ozan in Bourgogne to the North of Lyon; research required to confirm correct location
- Pador, Deux-Sèvres, Poitou-Charentes - unknown location (and not known to be associated with current Acadians Project profiles)
- "Pennemont," diocese of Nantes, Bretagne is associated with Quimine-2 and it has been suggested to be be a small village next to Saint-Molf - but the text may be or may be referring to "Pennemart" - which is an historic community near Quimper on the coast northwest of Nantes. The town, currently called Penmarch (Penmarc'h in Breton), was noted by the Office de la langue Bretonne to have been called Pennemart from 1654 (see Commune de Penmarch, p.110)
- "Pluvigne," Bretagne is associated with Duguay-762 - there is a town of Pluvigner near Vannes, but the source of the birth location is not clear in the proflle and should be reviewed, categorized for birth / baptismal confirmation
- Ruffec, Angoumois is associated with Levron-1 but place of birth noted is unsourced, others have assumed Nantes given dit name 'Nantois' - but also unsourced - profile categorized re need for baptismal and marriage information
- "Saint-Denis" / St. Denis, which can refer to multiple different locations in France and Nouvelle-France, may be associated with some profiles - should be reviewed
- "Saint Machoux" in the bishopric of Rouen was noted with respect to Mercier-1415 (based on La Roque census) - there is no known corresponding location but there is a parish of Saint-Maclou in Rouen, to be confirmed
- "Saint-René" in the diocese of Poitiers is noted on the marriage record for Garceau-139 but he has no birth record, and the parish has not been identified; it remains unclear whether this is in or outside of Poitiers, but his profile has been noted
- "Verrier, Reims" is used in connection with Closquinet-1 and is noted in connection with a marriage register, which appears to reflect "Verrier, Rheims" - there is a Verrières some 40km east of Reims (Verrières, Marne) and another Verrières some 40km northeast of Reims (Verrières, Ardennes) - both would have been part of Champagne (profile noted)
- Viz-Fezensac, Gascogne (today Gers) [Associated with Loubert-23 but not clear that this soldier and family who estalished in Québec in 1762 should be in the Acadians Project]
- Viriat in Auvergne is associated with Lalande-36 - this should likely be Viriat in Bourgogne (today just north of Bourg-en-Bresse, Ain) - but the profile is in process of review regarding Pierre and parents in connection with a different person De_La_Lande-3

Group 2 - Variants of Place Names Reflected in Table and Regions Lacking Specific Information

The following location names are currently reflected in the table, but the location names below (with inaccurate or incomplete information) - or regions lacking specific information - are still associated with existing Acadian profiles (to be revised):

- "Manche, Normandy" (see locations in Normandie, some now in the département de la Manche)
- Normandie (province, place potentially omitted)
- Paris, "Siene" (see Paris, Île-de-France)
- Saintonge (province, place potentially omitted)
- Touraine (province, place potentially omitted)

Some additional place names marked as "DGFA List" in the table were in the preface to the Dictionnaire Généalogique des Familles Acadiennes - but do not appear to be associated with flagged Acadian profiles - presumably representing Acadians not yet in Wikitree or with event information not yet linked to these place locatins.

Research Done with Revisions in Process:

Individuals in the following two groups are either in process or completed:

Group 3 - New Place Names Reflected in Table - Profiles in Process of Review for Updating

The following place names are now reflected in the table but there are corresponding Acadian profiles that have not yet been updated and/or the associated individuals have yet been linked to the table.

Most of the pioneers from identified locations in France who were the founders of Acadie have now been linked and their profiles revised with original place location names and cross-references to later names. They are each identified individually in the table notes - along with the other individuals associated with their origin or destination place in France.

The following places are associated with locations to which numerous Acadians were returned following the fall of Louisbourg in 1758, additional returnees who had been sent to England from 1755 but made their way to France in 1763, and children of these Acadians who were born in France. This group of Acadians in turn gave rise to a substantial number of Acadian pioneers of Louisiana, beginning in 1785.

Hi Tyler. Me again. A new one. I believe it is La Moisiais, near Pleurtuit, but spelled La Moysias or Moissays in profiles. Clearly written La Moisiais in one baptism record (Thibodeau-1592) but more difficult to decipher in others (Thibodeau-1593), (Thibodeau-7). These siblings were all baptized in Pleurtuit. Thanks for your help.

Edited to add another location: Créhen. Near Pleurtuit. I believe it was in Bretagne, now in Côtes-d'Armor. Bourg-1560

Hi Gisèle – yes, clearly spelled La Moisiais in the older record – and a small local area called "La Moisiais" was and still is a part of Pleurtuit. I haven't found any indication of it ever being a separate town so it's probably best noted as a 'lieu-dit' or 'hameau' (hamlet). It looks like both of the other records are hard to read because the name seems to have been written over – otherwise no indication of "La Moysias" anywhere (but I'll add an alternative spelling since it's made it's way into several genealogy records).

Regarding "Créhen" there is a town by the name in what is now Côtes-d'Armor. But I found that there's also a hamlet of Créhen which is just north of La Moisiais (both associated with Pleurtuit) – and Pleurtuit is where the baptisms are recorded (for Élisabeth Bourg and her younger brother).

So I'll add La Moisiais and Créhen as local place names to the table and adjust profiles with notes. Thanks for spotting - and always happy to help!

Hi Tyler,

A new town to add to the list: Tréméreuc. It is now in Côtes d'Amor. Since it is near Pleurtuit, I'm guessing that it was in Bretagne. Found in this profile: Aucoin-714.

Also, Le Villou. A hamlet near Tréméreuc. Found in: Aucoin-715

Another one: Paimboeuf (now in Loire-Atlantique) Thibodeau-1533

Cheers and thanks, Gisèle

Hi Gisèle,

Tréméreuc was indeed in Bretagne - and Le Villou was a very small hamlet within or just next to the town. So both of those and Paimboeuf are now added to both lists. Thanks and hope you're well! Tyler

Hi Tyler,

Hope you are well. Another new place found in Guillot-117: Doix, Angers, France. Sourced in 1752 census. I believe the ancient province could be Poitou, but not sure. https://www.axl.cefan.ulaval.ca/amnord/Acadiens-origines-poitou.htm Thanks and take care!

Hi Gisèle -

Just back and many thanks for this! Doix was indeed in Poitou. I updated Rene's profile - and he and Doix are now included in the French Origins of Acadians page: https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:French_Origins_of_Acadians&public=1 Best, Tyler

Hi Tyler;

Among the above is this item: "- Carolles, Normandie (today Manche) [Associated profiles Angot-92", the sources related to both the community of origin as well as the identity of the person themselves seem to be clear. Just wondering what else may be needed to add Carolles as a firm site as a source for at least one Acadian? Not sure if I can be helpful in firming up whatever is actually needed? Cliff

Hi Cliff,

Thanks for your note. Carolles is indeed supported with the pioneers noted and so is in the table. The last set of names (Group 4 - New place names reflected in table) track additions that have been made (even though the locations were not included in the DGFA).

If I could take you up on any possible offer of help though, the names in Group 1 ("Place Names in Review") all reflect places that appear in Acadian profiles but are not clearly supported in the cited profile(s). Presumably at least some of them are correct but have not been sourced. For this priority group, I've linked to the associated profile and aded a short explanatory note.

If you happen to be able to find support for any of these that would be great and much appreciated! We'd then have a new French origin for the Acadians table: https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:French_Origins_of_Acadians&public

Let me know if you do - and many thanks!

Hi - thanks for clarifying that for me!

I will have a look at List 1 to see if there is anything I can find. Can you add one more to your list - my direct ancestor was Nicolas Angot (Angot-22). Based on the available records he identified his birthplace as being "Vesly, Parish of Coutances, Normandie, France". This location is not on your list. Cliff

posted by Cliff Augot
Thanks Cliff - I've added Vesly to the table and included reference to Acadian pioneer Nicolas Angot as well. I'm assuming you'll revise locations in his profile - and we'd ideally add a short note to support the fact that the location is Vesly (and not Verly per the transcribed text). But let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in any way.

As for other locales and pioneers in Group 1, if you do research any and still can't find support for the location, you could note that with a comment to the proflle since that then flags the issue to the manager and/or others. (And if you've flagged it, then I won't always be the one to have to ;)

Hi Tyler,

Could you add a new location: Leigné-les-Bois? I placed it in Poitou, now Vienne, for this profile https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Girouard-5477. Hope I got the province right. Thanks!

Hi Gisèle

Will do - and yes, Poitou - although just a few miles from the border. I'll add the location to the main French Origins page (and update the parents' marriage locale). Merci beaucoup! Tyler
