Our Ancestors, Part 6: Forand

This is the last ahnentafel for my ex-husband in which the ancestors are completely French Canadian.  More French Canadian lilneage exists on his grandmother's side, but that will be another posting.  :)

As with the previous posts, I begin with my ex-husband's great-grandparents, and work backwards from them.  Marie Rose Blanche Forand was the wife of Arthur Romuald Terrien (Our Ancestors, Part 5: Therrien).

As you can see from the lack of dates and information, this line has received the least attention from me.  I think that is because it is the last of the full-French Canadian lines my ex-husband has, and by the time I work my way to it, I'm a little befuddled by all of the names and places.  LOL

Therefore, this will be a very short posting; I will stop at number 25 due to lack of information, although I can go much further back on the Forand, Brodeur, and Monast ancestors.

  1. Hi Wendy,

    Do you know the parents of Michel Ayet dit Malo who married Marie Fugere dit Champange? I am trying to tie them into "My" Louis Malo since they both come from the same place in Quebec. I do known Michel had a son Louis that lived in Taunton, MA.


  2. Hi there Kim,

    I have Joseph Ayet dit Malo and Marie Louise Cadieux as the parents of Michel Ayet dit Malo. This is not a lineage on which I have confirmed anything yet, so you will probably want to do that.

    If you visit my Rootsweb family tree, you can find the lineage I have listed and what little information I have on it from my ex-husband's great uncle: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=stormphoenix2

    I hope this is helpful to you. :)

  3. Hi Wendy,

    Your tip lead me to a marriage record that confirms that Joseph Ayet dit Malo and Marie Louise Cadieux are the parents of Michel. I will blog about this and post the marriage record on my blog over the next few days, probably tomorrow: http://malo-genealogy.blogspot.com/



    1. I'm so glad it helped! Exploring my ex-husband's French Canadian ancestry in depth just isn't something I've focused on much, so I'm really glad what little information I had was helpful to you. :)
