I am looking for information on my 3rd great grandmother, Adelaide LaFond and/or her possible family. Recent searches have lead me to believe that she may have been born on Feb 7 1823 somewhere near Baie du Febvre, Yamaska, QC. Her parents could be Jean Baptiste Lafond, born Dec 17 1778 and Marie Anne Courchesne born 2 Jul 1794, both in Baie de Febvre. I know that Adelaide had a brother named Peter (Pierre), and possibly two others, Jean Baptiste and Moses. Adelaide and her sibblings were born in Canada but she moved with her parents and several of her sibblings to the Green Bay, Wisconsin prior to 1840.

I would appreciate any information on these ancestors or any guidance anyone can give me as to where I may find birth information for Yamaska in the early 1800's.

Rather strange replying to myself, however, I have received updated information that indicates that the Adelaide LaFond I had previously listed is not my 3rd great grandmother. I would like to thank those that helped with the search.

Actually send a response to as this is the new email address.

Your inquiry asks about individuals that are part of my family tree as my mother's maiden name is Lafond. ACGS or American Canadian Geneological Society is located at 4 Elm Street in Manchester NH. 603-622-1554. They have volumes and volumes of birth, baptismal, marriage and death records from a vast majority of the churches in Canada. I have gone back as far as 1516 France. If you are not in the area, let them know and they will help you by doing some research for you. They are a wonderful, knowledgeable group.

Good Luck and have fun !

My husband's great great grandmother was Sophia LaFond born 5/5/1831 to Jean Baptiste and Marie Anne Courchesne. It was very interesting to see your post and obtain this information. If you have birth and death dates or any other information, I would be most grateful. We are also looking to find information on the LaForce family from the St Francis du Lac or Pierreville area. Sophia LaFond married Louis LaForce in St. Thomas de Pierreville onm 9/29/1857. They moved to Two Rivers Wisconsin after their marriage. If you have any ideas on where I can begin to look, I would again be most appreciative.

You can send info to my email address:
