Searching from "scratch"
I already know my Savoie side of the family but my grand-mother was a Abbott and I'd like to find more on her side of the family. I have been told those Abbott were from USA.

Grand-Ma was named Albina CORA Abbott, daughter of Joseph Abbott and Claudia (sometimes written Glaudia) Balleux. My aunts and father say it was Claudia with a "C".
Her Godfather was Armand Balleux (uncle) and godmother was Albina berthiaume (uncle's wife).
My grand-mother was baptized the same day she was born as she was very ill at birth. I've been told that while in her teens or close to, she had the last onction as she had entered a coma.
That's about all I have on her besides that she married my grand father Alphondor Savoie in Trois-Rivières (Québec) 22 February 1936.
If ever anyone had anything on my line of Abbott, I'd be delighted to leran of this shady past of my family.
