I have been doing genealogical research for more than 20 years. With Internet and its endless possibilities, I am able to put an end to those old brickwalls, to get to know my cousins and to get closer to my objective, i.e. find all the descendents of Mathieu Hubou whose family name is Tourville and its derivatives as well as so many others on the way.
While doing my research, I learn so much about the history of North America and I must admit I have a little preference for the 19th century. I am particularly interested in the migration of the French-Canadian to the United States.
One of my project aims at finding the origin of French-Canadians that lived in the area of Vergennes, Ferrisburgh and Charlotte, in Vermont. Vital, church and census records of these towns are the tools I will be using to do this. My research will initially cover the period 1850-1880. The results of my research will be posted on this Website.
Some of you were very generous by sharing some family pictures with us. I would like to warmly thank them. I invite you all to find those hidden treasures and share them with us. Many were able to discover the faces of great-grand-parents thanks to those pictures.
Diane Tourville, Longueuil, Québec
