I have done extensive research on my Loiselle ancestry and found absolutely everything I could hope for. While doing that research I remember seeing a Joseph Loiselle and a Malvina Larocque in the several marriage registries I researched. However, I cannot remember now but I am suspicious we come from the same Loiselle branch, which comes from the Loiselle pioneer who settled in Montreal as distinct from the other Louis Loiselle pioneer who settled near Quebec City in the 1670's.
So, I will address you other interest: the Roots in France
Source: I have been lucky to find two priceless books, one of them an antique book. First, the book 'Nos Ancêtres' found in the Saint Anne de Bellevue shrine (half and hour east of Quebec City) This publication comprises several volumes, each relating the origins of a group of pioneer families, of which, the Loiselles. I believe vol. No. 21 or 23 contains info. on the Loiselle pioneer. According to this publication Louis Loiselle who married and settled in Montreal came from the region of Caen in France, that is in Normandie. Loiselle is supposed to be an old Normand name.
He came from precisely Saint Germain de la Blanche Herbe near Caen. So, if you descend from the Montreal pioneer this is it. I do not have anything about the Loiselle pioneer who settled in Charlebourg near Quebec City giving origin to a different branch of Loiselles.
The second very, very priceless book is ' Généalogies des Principales Familles du Richelieu' published in 1927, that is, it is an antique book only found in the National Archives or the Quebec Archives in Quebec City or Montreal. I was lucky to find it in an antique book sale in Montreal a few years ago. The author is: G.A. de Jordy,prêtre There you will find the most complete old genealogy of the Loiselle marriages in the region of the river Richelieu. This is the region where the first generations of the Loiselles from the Montreal branch settled and progressively some of them continue towards the states of New England (Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Main). In this book, there is also a foot note which indicates Louis Loiselle our pioneer came from Saint Germain, Normandie.
I am a Loiselle from Chile. My Quebec ancestor Moise Loiselle went to the West with missionaries and then travelled to Chile, he married there and settled there. He had children and I am one of his third generation. I do have letters and pictures of his family in Quebec, some of them went to the West and some went to the New England states. Moise Loiselle's father was Prudent Loiselle from Saint Marc-sur-Richelieu and his mother Julie Tetrault-Ducharme. Prudent married again to Veronique Poulet and have more children of which Mathilde Loiselle who wrote the letters I have. HOpe to hear from you.
