Hi Monique and nice to meet you.

When I look at my Mom's tree (also mine), I see that my great great grand mother was Olive Vanasse & father was Jean Baptiste Robillard. Their son, my great grand father, Abraham, died at a young age of about 26 or 27 years old. He was killed on a logging job, but I'm not sure exactly where. My grand mother was only about 2yrs old when her father past away. Her mother, My great grand mother was Victoria (Victorine or Victoire) Riel, she re-maried a Mr. Morin, also from Maniwaki and I believe she was from Lac Ste-Marie.
Abraham had a couple of brothers, one was Pierre Robillard, very well known back in his day. The other was John. Pierre married Eliza Boutin, she was Native. The further I go back is Jean-Baptiste Robillard's father, Batiste Robillard. He married Justine Fortin. Baptiste was from Bouchette Qc. I'd like to go back even a little more but haven't been successfull yet. As for my gr. grand mother, Victoria Riel's background, I was able to find that Riel's name originally comes from Ireland. Now I need to know where it all started for Robillard.

Maybe we are related, we never know. Hope we can help each other with our trees.

Let me know if this helps.
