I married into the Trudo(trudeau) line and have been doing alot of research and have had a lot of success coming through this Line:
Robert Truteau,
Martial Truteau
Francois Trudeau,
Etienne Trudeau,
Toussaint Trudeau
Toussaint II Trudeau
Pierre Amble Trudeau
Pierre Trudeau
Thomas Trudeau -
Alfred Trudeau
Simon Alfred Trudeau
George Jerimiah Trudo

The Thomas I listed I have nothing on except a 1822 November marriage to Rosalie Provost.

I also have some information on the Children of a Laurent Trudeau, and I found him in the 1900 Census in Jefferson South Dakota This is what I know from that Census:
In 1900 Jefferson South Dakota
Laurent Born 1823, wife Louise, from IGI I found her last name as Hetu, she was born in 1832,they married in 1850. And in 1900 they had their 32 year old daughter Caroline living with them. I really would like any information on his parents so I can link it to my database

What information do you want I have so much I am getting lost. I don't know if you know there are two biographies out on Etienne Trudeau and on on his son Francois(this Francois is the one all record say after 1706 he was not heard from.)
unfortunately one of the bios is all in french and am working to get a translation of it. The one on francios is also in french and am trying to translate that as well.
It will be interesting to hear what you have as well. I am just starting to get all of the Trudeau line I have on paper into the computer so I have a lot of work ahead of me.

I can help you with the translation, if you send me the french text I'll do it for you.
My Trudeau line starts when Adrienne Barbier married Etienne Truteau (Trudeau)son of Francois Truteau and Catherine Matinser in Montreal in 1667. Pierre Elliot Trudeau is a descent of the eldestest son and we are form his 5th son Toussaint. Etienne came form the Parish of Notre dame de Cognac et Larrocheile France.

Lisa, may have a lot of info on that line, as I have almost the same one it appears. What program are you inputing your data in ? I use BK5, and therefore, can make a gedcom that could be inserted directly in your data bank, if that is the case. Also very interested in finding more about your books..... on the Trudeau clan, and what they contain. I can be reached at the following address
Hoping we can work together :-)

Clement, Thanks for the reply. I use Legacy 2.0 and can import (and export) into gedcom as well. I have a couple of atricles on Etinne Trudeau and his son Francois Trudeau (written in French, and only partially translated). I also have a book on the Donner party that talks about Jean Baptiste Trudeau. He is out of the line from the St. Louis clan.

Let me know if this will help you in any way. I would also be interested in knowing what information you have on either the Thomas or Laurent line.

Thanks. Lisa Trudo
