Hi Boisseaus and Assorted Folks,

Welcome to my Boisseau Family Geneaology project. 

You may want to begin by utilizing the toolbar above. Look in the 'people' section to find  the 'relationship' link 
 between yourself and any given ancestor or just look up an ancestors name.

The Boisseaus go back to the first Boisseau that came over,  Pierre Boisseau son of Rene Boisseau  and Renee Martin of France.  Rene Boisseau was with the archdiocese of Nantes France in the Loire region. region.
  When he came here he was a priest in Sillery, Quebec. Sillery was a fort  named for the man who set it up in order for the Native Americans to live and learn Christianity mainly taught by mainly taught by the French. Those native americans were Algonkins, for whose blood we share. I  cannot find more information on Rene Boisseau but there is a wealth of information on his son Pie Pierre. 
 Most of my information was retrieved from the National Archives of Quebec in Montreal. I also obtai obtained a lot of information 
 from a cousin, Jean Claude Lalonde from Ontario. All of my information has been cited and more  information will be added soon.

Famous people on this site you may want to look up on the web to get more information on: Pierre Radisson--Famous Fur Explorer

Marie Marguerite Helene Sire nee Sarah Allen, along with Josiah Rising and Abagail Nims,  all three were kidnappees of the Deerfield Massacre in Deerfield MA and taken to Canada by Algonquins and French. Sarah married a Lalonde who is Algonquin, and Josiah and Abagail were  adopted by Native Americans. Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha--Native Alkonqian is the neice to our Marie  Miteouguokeou.
 Nicolas Bonin, founder of Contrecouer Quebec, his descendant is Marie Bonin who married Louis Gre Greenwood (Boisvert) of Spencer, MA.

We have at least 9 names in this tree that go back to France and are on a list of 32 Norman family  names of Viking Origin. Most of them are in the Radisson tree: Godefroy, Auber, Aumont.

My DNA states that I am 10% Scandanavian which I believe is Viking from the Normans. I am also of Lionaisse Lionaisse area of middle France from Normandy stretching over to the Alps, and of Southern France  at the border of the Pyrenese. We also have a good amount of Spanish or Iberian which is also where  I believe we received the Jewish gene from the Boisseau side as the Jewish people inhabited Spain  and Portugal at one time.

I have so much more to add so please check back frequently.
