Our French Genealogy
Miscellaneous French Lines


Our mother's French ancestry was almost a complete surprise to me as I only vaguely remembered her telling us that she was "Irish, French & Welsh". Little did I expect that it would read like a "who's who" of French Canadian and/or Acadian genealogy.

Luckily many Acadian, French Canadian and French researchers have kindly taken mercy on my not reading or speaking French and helped with much of this, including our drawn-out discussion on soc.genealogy.french regarding the disputed FOREST genealogy, which I had originally found on the Ancestral File at my local Family History Center.

Since Denis Forest of the FOREST Family Association kindly supplied me with 19+ generations in that family, disputed or otherwise, back to ca 1007 a.d., many of the lines I include here may well be direct lines and not collaterals. If you want to add a query, please e-mail me.
