My interest in genealogy started when I collaborated in a compilation
of the descendants of Onesime Baril (1856-1910), my mother's grandfather.
The work was carried out by Michel Laliberté (married to Johanne
Baril) from Montreal.
Having recently acquired an new program (Family
Origins ) to keep track of my immediate family, I immediately started
to enter the data from Michel's book. I also asked Michel to trace my
family (L'Heureux), which he did, adding about 50 entries into my database.
It also provided me with my direct lineage to Simon Lereau dit L'Heureux
(1626-1670), my first ancestor in La
Nouvelle France. My next step was to create this genealogy web
page - and the rest is history. I have kept several comments
from readers which you are welcome to view.
A site map and a search
engine are also available for faster navigation.
