WEB site and GENEALOGY by Yves Gaudreau

Yves has a passion for history, genealogy and computers. His high interest for the Gautreau families and his ease to communicate with people helped him to collect twenty thousand marriages which are listed in this genealogical dictionary 2001.

Since 1987 Yves has devoted time to the Association of the Gautreau families. He was in turn V.P. and President of the Montreal section and was a contributor to the association's bulletin. He spent many hours of his own time during more than fifteen years to genealogy research. He also volunteered as editor for the Bernier family bulletin under the presidency of his wife Lucie.

In 1993, Yves was present for the first meeting of Gautreau from "Ile-de-Ré", France, a temporary committee was created to supervise the founding of the French association. Mr. Paul Gautreau from "St-Front la Rivière" was elected in 1994, president of the new "Association des Gautreau de France".

In 1999, Yves built his own bilingual web site which brought contacts from family members from everywhere. With this medium he makes available Gautreau Family history to all and helps them to complete their own history.

These dictionaries are the result of a research in libraries and specialized sites done in my spare time over a period of fourteen years. My main goal is, not only to build my family tree, but also to establish, as accurately as possible, the complete descendants of Gilles, Jean, François and Louis.
