Hi to any cousins out there. I finally traced my mum's ancestry all the way back to France. Her dad was Arthur Duchesne from St Jerome (lac St Jean). His father was Gonzague Duchesne - he's one of the few I don't have a birthdate for. His father was Frederic Duchesne of La Malbaie; Frederic's father was Jacques of La Malbaie. Jacques' father was Paul, married in Baie St Paul in 1751. His father was Jacques, b. 1717 in BSP. Jacques father, also called Jacques b. 1787 in Ile d'Orleans married Elisabeth Petit 1716 in BSP. Jacques' father was Pierre who married Catherine Rivet.
I hope one day to visit all the places my Duchesne and other ancestors live.
