Paquin Family Genealogy Forum
Thank you so much for your response. I understand that the reference you cite is a four-volume, 1948-page publication and would be well worth checking. Unfortunately I don't have access to a copy. The closest I come is the considerably shorter Petit Histoire des Familles Paquin, which sheds no light on Anna Paquin's immediate ancestry.
I'd like to ask a favor if I may. Assuming you have ready access to it and it isn't too much trouble, would you consult the Dictionnaire des Familles Paquin for the ancestry for Anna's grandfather, Albert Paquin? I would like to know how his paternal line traces back. Again, I'd appreciate any further light you may shed on this.
