Ancestry.com for the 1906 census has the named indexed as Alfard Chartier, but on the census record, it looks like Alfred to me. The 1916 census has his name indexed as Wilfred Chartier which is the way it is spelled on the census page. I believe all of the other census records have the name spelled as Alfred; including 1881, 1891, and 1901. Alfred was not born in Europe. The EU in the 1906 census is an abbrevation for the French word for the United States; Etat-Unis. All of the above censuses have Alfred being born in the U.S. except for the 1901 census which has him being born in Quebec.

, I can e-mail you the article written about this family and I can also send you pages back to Jean (John Carter) Chartier who is the patriarch of this Chartier family. John Carter was an English boy living in Deerfield, Mass who was taken to Quebec by French soldiers and their Indian allies after they were finished raiding Deerfield in 1704.
