For anyone in this community who has both Quebec and Acadian ancestors, you might also be interested in joining the WikiTree Acadians Project community!

Welcome to the WikiTree Quebecois Project community! While this community is connected to the Quebecois Project on WikiTree, it is open and welcoming to anyone with an interest in researching Quebec genealogy, especially those families that settled there in the 17th century.

Feel free to post any questions, discussions, interesting links, or anything else related to Quebec genealogy!

No problem! The Acadians Project community here has started to draw in some interest from outside of WikiTree, so I'm hoping this one will do the same! Please invite anyone you know who may be interested. :)

Michel Richard has been nominated for Profile of the Week! His profile's in pretty good shape right now as far as layout and whatnot, but I just thought I'd let you all know in case anyone wanted to make any additions before voting time.

I did it! I found my connection! :D Though it's largely thanks to Erin for the French Canadian connection she posted in G2G, which got me most of the way there!

Since plenty of French Canadians have both Acadian and Quebecois ancestors, I thought I'd share this here. There is now a community for WikiTree's Quebecois Project as well! All are welcome! :)

I found another Acadian lurking among my Quebec ancestors! Marie Bourgeois appears to have completely Acadian ancestry. I'm still working on connecting all the dots, but so far this branch is connecting me back to a bunch of the same Acadians I was already connected to, but slightly closer. For example, I was Daniel LeBlanc's 11x great granddaughter, but now I'm also his 9x great granddaughter!

I wonder how many of my supposedly Quebecois lines are really Acadian lines in disguise!

I know! It puts me a little out of my comfort zone. I'm trying to source the profiles in this line (I haven't created any new ones, just adopted ones that were already there), but I've never done any New England research before.

A wrap-up of my very uneventful (reading-wise) March.
