Hi, I am descended from the D'Amours also. I only go back to 1375 with Mathurin D'Amours. Would be interested in information that goes back to Charlemagne. How far does your family retain the name D'Amours. My family name changed to Louviere around 1789, after the family came to Louisiana by way of Boston after the Great Deportation from Acadia,

Also, I can not import my family tree into Have you been successful in doing this?

I realize this message I am responding to is about five years old, but I have recently begun resarching my ancestry. I have been able to trace back only as far as 1243. If anyone is still out there I would appreciate any information. I am descended from Mathurin through Charles. We eventually ended up in Maine. Thanks for any help you can give me.

My name is Joan DaMour Van Gorp.
My father was Joseph DaMour of Bay City, Mi.
This summer I was able to trace the family back to Maturin in Fr. I can verify to Cryrille and Margurette Gagnon in Trois Pistoles, Que. and from there through Ancestry Tree of Marchand to France. Assuming his tree is correct and I believe it is. because of some of his links match up. If interested please contact me.

Hi, my name is Joan DaMour and recently read a book written bay Walter Hornstein and Mary Colburn Hornstein. I got it on library loan from Northern Michigan University. "The D'Amour Family in Canada and Other Pioneer Families of New France." They are from Garden, Mi. in the Upper Pennsiula. It was very interesting for me. I learned much about Mathieu in Que. and was able to take my father back to Que. and I believe to France.
Marchand-Marchant tree is also very very good.

Tere is another book with almost the same Title written by a Monseignor Charles O'Neil D'Amour, Dominican order, of Delta, Mi. But I have not found it yet. I live in Livonia, Mich. Mr. Hornstein has a lot on the net. Good Luck Joan

I live in New Braunfels, Texas. Mrs. Hornstein was my great aunt. She was my father's (Bernith Terrien) mother's (Norma Colburn Terrien)who was married to Joseph Terrien. I lived in Wells, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan from 1942 (birth) to 1960 when I joined the US Air Force. The town of Wells is outside Escanaba and about 65 miles from the town of Garden.. I had heard about the book by the Hornsteins; but was of the understanding that Mrs. (Marby) wrote the book.. Her sister Norma wrote and had published two books of poetry. Norma lived in Cornell (15 miles NW of Escanaba) and I believe more info can be obtained from the Delta County Historical Society (Escanaba).

My brother Terrance (Dallas, TX) or my sister Sharon Terrien Harrison (Cornell, MI) would have more info on the Terrien tree. They are both have gathered information on the family.

If I can help, please email me. Len Terrien

I would be interested in the book by "Father D'Amour"; he became a Monsegnoir later. He was the pastor at St. Anthony's Church in Wells, MI in Delta County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.. I was and alter boy and served Mass with him many, many times.

Father was instrumental in building Holy Name High School in Escanaba, MI and later was appointed by Pope Pius XII as the head of all Catholic Education in the US. He was stationed in Washington DC. Later he was Pastor of a parish in Norway MI (Upper Peninsula). I visited him there around 1980. I heard later Father died of cancer - but no details. Len Terrien
