More details on Jolivet

Hello,

I am a Jolivet from Montreal, Québec.

I trace my ancestry from the same Jacques Jolivet who emigrated from France to Quebec city ("Ange guardien") around 1680. I cannot trace ancestry before.

Jacques Jolivet was coming from Jargau, a small village near the river Seine, and not far from Orléans (remember Joan of Ark ?).

I went to France and Jargau afew years ago; it's a beautiful place, very old, with a church dating back from the 1200.

In the church, there is the name of a Jolivet, killed during the last war...

My family still speaks french (all over Quebec there are other Jolivet) and it is amazing to see the name spread all over North America !

Gilles Jolivet
