Blog Notes said...

My name is Pierre Philippe Brûlé, I live in Montreal. I come from a family of seven, all born in the Outaouais ... we are all alive. In the early 1970s my father commissioned a complete family tree for both sides (my mother was born Patenaude) from the Drouin Institute in Montreal. It turned out that we were directly linked to Antoine Brûlé (known as Francoeur). To learn more about Étienne Brûlé, who arrived in 1608 with Champlain, it seems that he had a son named Antoine. It seems that we are about the 21th generation in North America... from all a French ligneage.
