My grandfather was Hector Helie from Quebec. He had 12 or 13 brother's and sisters, most of whom stayed in Quebec. He was born in 1885. The Helie family still owns the family farm in Quebec - the raise pork and have a sausage factory there. I would love to find relatives and fill in the list of brother's, sisters and cousins.
Please let me know if you know anything about these Helie's.

Hi Derek!
Thanks for your message. Do you know where your great grandfather was born? The story of the Helie's that I am familiar with is that there were three brothers who came to Canada from France (I am not sure exactly when, but probably in the 1700's) The all came to Quebec. One brother stayed there (my grandfather Hector's family), one brother went out to British Colombia, another Canadian province, and one brother went down the Mississippi to Louisiana. My grandfather had about 13 brothers and sisters. The story is that there is a family farm in Quebec City that is still owned by the Helie family. They raise pork and run a sausage factory there. I talked to them in 1994 when my father died. Anyway, share this with your parents and see if any of the story rings any bells.
It is fun to try to reconstruct who your ansestors were and their lives, isn't it?
Thanks again for your answer.
PS My youngest son is 16 and his name is Nick.

Well so far all i know my great pepe was from Quebec. He had two brothers.That we know of. Their names were Maurice and Albrique. They moved to Chicopee Mass.Maurice was a shoemaker and Albrique and my great pepe George were cabinetmakers. George was the owner of Helie Cabinet Works until 1969.I will try to get more information for you from my pepe and dad. I know i have distance cousin i never met who live on Cape Cod Mass and Syracuse New York.Its not a common name so were probably related someway.I know were some how related to the Pratts and Gregoires. who are still in the Quebec area. Gregoires is my great meme maiden name.
Sincerely Derek

My great grandmother was Aurore Marie Helie b. 7-14-1898 in Quebec d. 4-4-1993 Detroit, Michigan and was married to Henri Paille.

Aurore's parents were Alphonse Helie and Azilda Duhaime. Aurore (my great grandmother) had a brother named O'Neil Helie but that's all I know on the Helie side. I have a picture of Azilda Duhaime and her children and husband on a farm in Quebec. If you would like to see it I can e-mail it to anyone who is interested.
