Montreal Records/Senet family

Montreal Records/Senet family

I recently found my husband's family (Snay, an Anglicized version of Senet) to be descended from Nicholas Senet dit Laliberte who arrived in Montreal around 1670-1680. He was a corporal in the French Army who became a Royal Notary. From Denissen (a genealogy of French families in the Detroit area), I have found the names of his direct descendants down to my husband's great grandfather. The family lived in or near Montreal (Point-Aux Trembles, Longue Pointe, Chambly) until the late 1700's when they moved to Detroit, then to Mt. Clemens, MI where my husband was born. I would like to find out more about his ancestors besides the vital statistics. Does anyone know of resources available where you could find their occupations or any other information? We live in Kentucky, but would like to take a trip to Montreal to see his ancestors birthplace and do some research. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi here is some basic info re travel to Montreal. Plan to come in the spring, may and june are nice weather months. Plan a 2 day drive to get there, so you are not over tired when you arrive. Make reservations for your stay. Remember that all road signs are in French, and we measure distances in the metric system, so get an up to date road map, and read it before you start to drive around the city. Most folks in Montreal are bi-lingual/ French/ English, and some speak more than that. Any Police officer will help you with directions.

Before you come, contact the Montreal Tourist board, they will be very helpful. As for historic sites, remember that Montreal was a city when New York was a village, There are many places to go, allow your self at least 5 days, more if you can. When you are looking at prices for hotels, remember that the excahnge rate is approx 45 percent. That means when you excahnge your US dollars for Canadian dollars, you will get 1.45 Canadian for each one US. So if you want to look at it this way, all our prices are 45 percent off the listed price. Hope some of this helps you. Jim Bunting, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
