Genealogy of the Désilets family

by J-Roger Cloutier

Also : Désilet, Desilets, Desilet, Désilais, etc.

The Désilets belong to two groups: descendants of Antoine Desrosiers or descendants of Jacques Mousseaux. Antoine Desrosiers arrived in New France about 1645. Jacques Mousseaux arrived in 1653. The only way to find out which group you belong to is to identify your complete family line. Today, the Désilets belonging to the Antoine Desrosiers group are about ten times more numerous than those of the other group. For more information, see further below.



For many years, I have been gathering all the information I can get about the Désilets family. I now have in my database, information on over 3,200 families (1,700 Désilets husbands, 1,500 Désilets wives). I am willing to share my data and provide information to the interested searchers.

Many sites post databases using different methods. I find that searching most of the sites is difficult and not very efficient. Rather than post a large data file where the wanted information is elusive, I offer to do your searching for you.

You are searching?

Just provide me with the information you already have on the Désilets family you are searching and describe what your are searching for. I will respond by e-mail as early as I can. Click here to send me your e-mail.
