Hi Michelle, Thanks for your message. I have been doing genealogy for over 10 years now. It is indeed an enjoyable hobby. I have researced the d'Eon family which originally was spelled Duon which was changed to D'Eon after Paul Duon son of Able Duon. I have 2,862 thus far. I have been also doing the d'Entremont, LeBlanc, Barteaux and Pothier families which are also part of my roots. I have been working a lot on the LeBlanc name which is the most common french acadian of names and have 35,500 names thus far. The only family I am having trouble
with is Barteaux my paternal grandmother's maiden name. I have tried over and over for so many years and no one else seems to be able to get any further. I recently have been doing the Dobson family in particular the McToal's of Norther Ireland. This I had not pursued much because obtaining info can be costly but now because of the internet I have been able to obtain much more information from the first time back in 1997. I am quite pleased with myself because for one my husband's McToal family is where a genetic disorder Myotonic Dystrophy which
originated from Patrick McToal is paternal great grandfather and there are 8 in Ireland and 6 in Canada with the disorder including our two youngest of 4 children, I have children Marc, 28, Matthew, 26, Brian 23 and Kimberly 18.
Mathieu (Pierre) Duon was the first descandant and then Jean-Louis, Jean Baptiste, Augustin is where through his two sons Augustin and Paul my parents have a connection. My mother through Abel's son Augustin to Julien to Charles Desire to my maternal grandmother Therese d'Eon and then on my father's side from Abel's son Paul to Joseph to Monique D'Eon married to Remi Pierre d'Entremont to Theodore Pierre d'Entremont my paternal grandfather who married Annie Sarah Barteaux. I may have more info than you do. We could share if you want. Where are you from?
I live in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia. Take a look at these webpages.http://geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/2861/
