How far does the Quesnel family tree go? Part 2

The commenter never wrote back I think.

I just got this comment… about that article

How far does the Quesnel family tree go?

This will have to be investigated thoroughly. As you say it has a great bearing on our family tree and leaves us in limbo as to whom we are actually descendants of.

The author of “Les Quesnel”, Albert Aimé Quesnel, was a respected genealogist who took great pride in his work and in the Quesnel name.

He does admit that errors in his research will be found and hopefully rectified.

Please send me your email address and I will send you more information about this proud member of the Quesnel family.

By the way, my mother was born Isabella Lagacy.

My best regards.
Jean (John) Aime Quesnel

How far does the Quesnel family tree go?

Written in 2011.

Our Ancestors

I did not intend to write more than one article a week on this blog.

I had postponed talking about my Quesnel roots after my articles on Eddy Dubois.

This is the article I posted sometime ago…

Click here.

Rosina Quesnel is my maternal grandmother, and as many people looking for their roots, I found much valid information on the Internet.

Rosina is a direct descendant of Olivier Quesnel who was a gunsmith in the 1600s.

In this picture Rosina Quesnel is seen with her first husband Venance Paiement.

Venance was baptized “Valence” by the priest who was thinking his given name was Valence… like Valencia a town in Italy.

Sometimes such errors are found in the parish registers.

On the Internet Georges de Quesnel is often linked to be the father of Pierre de Quesnel who married Marie Poulard, these two being Olivier Quesnel’s parents.

Olivier Quesnel is known…

I always take the time…

I always take the time to reply to a message on Ancestry or a comment left on this blog. This is how this blog has been working since 2009. Cassandra got a big surprise when I sent her a link to this post. 

She saw two of her ancestors.

Israël  and Olive

My friend Robert gave me permission to post that picture taken from a book. Someone had  shared this picture with him.

He also shared this.

The picture of Israël Latreille’s father.

Joseph Lalande dit Latreille

And Olive Quesnel’s parents.

François Quesnel et Élisabeth Chrétien

Hard to believe?

André Mignier first ancestor

What about this clue I found on the Internet among the other clues? Is it valid information or just information copied from someone’s else research?

One clue tells all!

Michel Mignier born around 1610 died in 1727!

117 years old!

Suspicious enough not to trust everything I found yesterday in my search for George Lagasse who married Albertine Deschênes.

I have learned not to trust everything I find on the Internet, or people who say they know it all. Having been hooked on genealogy since 2007 because of old pictures like this one…

Honoré Sauvé et Julie Leroux

I have learned more than just who were my ancestors. Always check first, then check again, and again.

This being said…

This information seems valid though.

Napoléon Lagacé

I can corroborate this information with this.

1901 Joseph L Lagassé

Joseph L. Lagassé’s family is seen here. Joseph’s wife is Ellen Lagassé who was in fact Helen Grant whose daughter was Anna Ellen Lagassé born in 1900 whose real name was…

Mrs. Lejeune was the mid-wife.

In 1901, Joseph was a carpenter. Ernest Thibeault was a lodger, and I suspect he was related somewhat to Joseph’s first wife Marie Thibault, Napoléon’s mother.

Napoléon Lagacé

Marie Thibault probably died when she gave birth to Marie Julia in 1896.

Joseph Lagace

Joseph had to remarry, and he found a new wife living not far from where he lived…

1891 James Grant
