ABOUT THIS SITE...

MY FAMILY HISTORY

My family's genealogy is mostly French and French Canadian.

Originating in France, both my father's and mother's branches were original settlers in Canada.My father's family immigrated from France to Quebec sometime in the 17th century, with my father's family living mostly around Beauce and Lac Megantic.

My mother's family immigrated from France to Nova Scotia on the ship 'Satisfaction' under command of Peter Butler and in company of Sir Thomas Temple in 1657. These original settlers along the Atlantic became known as l'Acadie (the Acadians). My mother's maiden name is Melanson and she is directly descended from Pierre (dit Laverdure) and Priscilla Mellanson, who are on record in London with their children prior to making the crossing.

MARK'S FAMILY HISTORY

Mark's family's genealogy is varied and fascinating, including Welsh, French, British, Swedish, Danish, Canadian, Spanish, and numerous others.

On his father's side it includes Welsh Quakers who immigrated to America at the time of and some with William Penn. From these Welsh Quakers is his family's royal connections with several of his multiple great grandparents having been Kings and Queens of England. As a result of the royal lineage, his family is linked to every nation that ever married into the British royal family.

On his mother's side is Swedish and Danish ancestry as his great-grandparents immigrated to America in the late 1800's and early 1900's from Sweden. Shortly after, they settled in Saskatchewan, Canada as a result of the promise of free workable land on the Canadian prairie.
