I am very glad to have a contact on the West Coast, specially in California, because I am told that Adhemar Allard (son of Louis Allard et Olive Cote) migrated to California after having farmed in South Dakota. Do you know about him and his 2 brothers and 2 sisters who lived in South Dakota: Georges Allard (born in 1864), vetenirary, m. 1899 Dina Jacques. Ernestine Allard (1868-1955), m. 1893 Ulric Phénix: they lived in Jefferson, S.D., and Manitoba. Arthur Allard (born in 1876), probably drug dealer (pharmacian). Eva (1881-1909), m. in 1900 Ernest Cote: their son Rene, from Mistassini cloister, dead in South Dakota when visiting his family.
Louis Allard is Joseph Allard and Josephe Janelle's son as your ancestor Michel. Joseph Allard is François Allard and Josephe Courchesne's son. François Allard is Gabriel Allard and Elisabeth Proulx's son. Gabriel Allard is Jean-François Allard and Marie-Ursule Tardif's son. Jean-François Allard is François Allard and Jeanne Anguille's son.
My address is:P.O. Box 184 Drummondville (Quebec) J2B 6V7
With your address, I will send you information about Michel before living Quebec.
