Hi: Have you tried these sources: Dictionnaire généalogique des familles canadiennes, Cyprien Tanguay; Dictionnaire généalogique des familles du Québec, Gabriel Drouin; Portraits des familles pionnières, Robert Prévost. They are not too hard to follow, even if you don't read much French. Many of my vital records came from the parish records of Québec held in the Salle Gagnon, at the Public Library in Montréal.
My first Pinsonneault connection was from the François P. and Anne Leber marriage, through their son Pierre who m. Marie-Charlotte Lecours. My first Brousseau ancestor was Jean-Pierre B. (b. ca 1665 in Langon, France) who m. Anne Greslon Sept. 6, 1683 in Notre-Dame de Québec. The 17th century land grants and their attempts to settle their land amidst struggles with the Indians is a fascinating subject.
