Thank you for merging Fardet Contois-2 and Fordais-2 but I believe there is still Fordais-5 and Fordais-2 to be merged. Can you manage ? I am not allowed since I am not on the trusted list. Michèle

Hi Jim,

I ran out of space in my last note, but one important point about my line, is that I belong to the Riopelles (starting with Ambrose) who moved from Quebec to Detroit around 1760. Regards, Jeff

Hi Jim,

I just wrote, but now have taken a look at the Riopelle tree. I know exactly how I tie in, but want to learn about WikiTree Tools before I start entering data. I do start from the top! Pierre Riopelle (1656-1700), then -3. Peirre Riopelle, then --9. Ambrose Riopelle, then ---6. Hyacinthe Riopelle, then ----6. Alexander Riopelle, then -----5. Alexander Riopelle (1848-1918), then, I leave the Chart. My Great-Grand Father was this 2nd Alexander's son, Oscar Alexander Riopelle (1880-1959); my Grandfather was Elton Alexander Riopelle (1904-1966); my father James Oscar Riopelle (1931-2012); & me, Jeffrey Paul Riopelle (1955-), w/1 sister, Jennifer Annette (Riopelle) Rutherford (1956-); I have a son, Robert James Riopelle (1997) & daughter, Julia Elisabeth Riopelle (1999). - Rgds, Jeff

Hi Jim,

The Holidays are a bit busy, but I intend to be more active after the New Year. It is very cool that you have close Riopelle family member. I will fill in the tree as you suggeted. I just ordered Ancestry DNA and Family Tree tests, so I hope to learn more through my genetics as well. Have a great Holiday season! - Jeff

Hi Jim,

Guidelines are on this page: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Quebecois

scroll down and you will find them. For categories, Guy is working on setting them up for locations. Have set up a couple of pertinent professions myself already also.

recording quebecois references? Wikitree has a page on how to record sources/references, no different for us.

Hi Jim,

if you read the Quebecois Project page you will get most answers to your questions.


For name variation, Wikitree says to use the name they used in their living...


For categorization, we are working on sub-categories for the project. See also on the project page.

References and sources... we don't want reference to personal trees. Primary source should be added. I use the <ref> in the bio to add sources but others use the Source section.

Hope this will help you,
