I am absolutely delighted to be the first to post a message at this Filteau surname forum.
Variations in spellings are commonly: Felteau, Facteau, Facto, Fecteau, Fecto, and supposedly Feauto (but I am not 100% convinced of that connection -- even though I am following it).The Filiatro family variations are part of another family, not of the Filteau family.
I promise to monitor this forum at least once a week.
I have been documenting the descendents of Pierre Filteau and Gillette Savard (m. 1666 in Quebec) for almost 10 years.I have helped many people find their Filteau / Facteau / Fecteau ancestry.
So post your questions here and we can all find out how we are related to one another.There are over 15000 people currently known to be part of the Filteau family tree -- directly by blood or by marriage.
I, and hopefully all the others who visit this forum, want to help each of us learn more about our heritage.
Please let us know about you. Especially the families in the USA (the Canadian vital statistics - before 1970 - have been more available to the public in published format).
Note: before this Filteau surname forum was established, many previous messages were posted under the Facteau or Fecteau surname forums.So you may wish to visit those locations also.
