My family tree

I was born in the Goulet family in 1975. My grand-father Wilfrid Joseph Arthur Goulet, was born in 1907 in Levis, Quebec, a small town outside of Quebec city. He married my grand-mother Marie Albertina Claire Belanger in 1935 in Saint-Louis de Pintendre. Tracing back the family tree of Wilfrid, I managed to identify Jacques Goulet (married to Marguerite Mullier) has the first of my ancestors setting foot in the New World back in 1646.

Moulin du Petit-Pré (Little Meadow Mill) where Jacques worked as a miller in Québec.

My recent Goulet ancestors lived in the Levis region most of their lives, with a few exceptions, some family members emigrated to New Hampshire in the late 1880’s.

On my mother’s side, I was born a Dulac. My great-grand father Louis-Philippe Dulac was born in 1868 in  Berthierville, a region north of Montreal. In 1891, he married Marie-Louise Lafontaine and they left a couple of years later to live in Waterbury, Connecticut where more children came into the family. Louis-Philippe was a carpenter and he opened up a shop with his brother Maxime.

Louis-Philippe came back to Canada in 1908 and my grand-father Lucien was born a couple of years later in 1912. I always wondered what my life would have been if Lucien had been born in America.

This is but just a small sample of my research but a good start for readers out there to know what surnames I am interested in. So I’m a Goulet but also a Dulac, Boies, Belanger, Genereux and (of course) a Tremblay. Stay tuned in for more discoveries!
