|My name is Jean (John) Lacroix.I am researching the history of the Lacroix family in North America and hopefully prior to that in France.|
I am starting my search with the following surnames:
My primary region to begin my search is Ottawa, Ont. and the Eastern Ontario region, (specifically Cornwall, Ont.)
My father was Clarence Lacroix (born Aug. 19, 1921, Ottawa)
My Mother was Jeannette Gauvreau (born April 30, 1919, Ottawa)
I don't currently know very much about my mother's side of the family.Her mother died when my mother was 5.I didn't know my maternal grandfather.My mother was raised by a branch of her family with the surname, Fardais.
The only grandparent I knew was my father's mother.My Father's father died in 1947 shorlty before I was born.I don't remember her maiden name but I believe she was born in Cornwall, Ont.
I am an only child and both my parents are deceased.I think it's time to trace my roots.I would appreciate any information I can get.I spoke to someone briefly a few years ago who told me that the first Lacroix arrived in Canada in 1648.I would love to be able to verify this.
