Hi Oxana

How far do you want the info. I have a great list of descendents from a cuz in Ottawa, ON. He has a website with the info and my family is on it.

If you want help just drop me a line.

Thanks

Hi Glen,

I just found your post. I am also interested in any information that you have regarding Ferdinand Degerlais and Dorothee Cona. I know they had a son, Jean Jacques Desgerlais, born 1643 Louisville, PQ, Canada. That is all I have.

I would appreciate any information you can give me.

Joan

Jean Jacquet de Gerlaise was born in Liège in 1643, and was baptised in the St-Paul-de-Liege cathedral. He enlisted with the Carignan-Salières regiment and was sent to New-france in 1665 where he settled in Louiseville. He was not born in Louiseville, but he was the first settler of Louiseville (formerly the Manereuil "seigneurie").

Ferdinand Jacquet de Gerlaise stayed in the Liege area all his life...

Bonne journée!

Thank you so much, Patrick. You are the first one answered with an information in 8 years!!! Where do you get the info and how can I access it, if at all possible? I thought his name was "Jean Jacques", "Jacques" being a second name or something like that. Are you sure it's "Jacquet"?

My pleasure. I live in Montreal which is close to Louiseville and once visiting there, I stopped in a store and purchased a book relating the history of Louiseville. It is in this book that I got a lot of informations on Jean Jacquet de Gerlaise. Furthermore, since I read in French and English, there is more information available on this subject for me, and like I've wrote, records are well conserved in Quebec.

Our ancestor is the first settler of louiseville and the Desjarlais family and descendants lived there continuously from the first day of Louiseville (Formerly "Seigneurie de Manereuil" or "Mannereuil").

Do you read French? If so, I would suggest that you do a research on the web on the "Régiment Carignan-Salières" in the La Fouille company.

Many think that the second name is Jacques because in Quebec "Jean-Jacques" was once a popular first name, but Jacquet was quite common in Liege at this time and normally he should have more a family name before "de Gerlaise" which is the land own by the family.

I hope this helps a bit more!

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunatelly I do not read French, though the more I do the research the more I think I should learn it :). But I still would like to look into the histories of Louiseville and the regiment; if nothing else, my son's french teacher can translate it for me since she actually grew up in France. Thanks again for the info, I will write again if I have more questions, if it's OK.

If you have any question, don't hesitate to ask, I will try my best to help you learn more about our common ancestor with what I know... I can surely give you the info in English without for you the need of asking for a translation. Just let me know what are you interested to know...

Thanks, that probably would be too much work for you though, as I want to know EVERYTHING - who, where, when, why, how, etc. :). I've been doing genealogy full time for a while, but now do not have as much time for it as I want. I will need to go over my records and see where I am and what I need. I don't know much about Ferdinand and his family, but I don't think it's possible to find much anyway. I would love to go there someday and do it on the spot, but that most likely will never happen. It's encouraging though that there is a lot to learn about Jean and early Loiseville.
