I have traced my Acadian ancestry to Francois Gautrot who arrived in Acadie about 1632 from Poitou in France where he was born about 1613. Is there any information of his parents, grandparents and so on? My nephew has done some research and believes Francois' ancestors came from the Channel Islands. Can this be verified? (by parent to parent lineage, perhaps)? Francois' second wife, Edmee LeJeune (whom he met and married in Acadia), was also from the Poitou region of France. Is there any information on her ancestry in France? Her father was Pierre LeJeune who arrived in Acadia in the 1620's.
