Darveau(x) Descendants of North America
Darveau(x) Descendants of North America
Blaise A. Darveaux
Hello. In 1979, shortly after the death of my grandmother I began collecting the names of all the descendants of my great-grandparents Louis Darveau and Sarah Ann Casey. A few years later, a second cousin of mine (Jack D. Darveaux) traveled to Quebec and Montreal to research the Darveau name as far back as the records would allow. He was able to connect us with the first Darveau in North America and I have been adding families to the tree ever since.

The genealogy presented here is a descendancy of the Darveau(x) lines. It is not my ancestry (i.e. pedigree). I also do research into my ancestry (and my wife’s), but those are not presented here. My database contains the names of nearly 27,000 relatives (and their spouses) of my children. Still, this is only an estimated 1% of all their relatives.

This web site presents all of the descendants of Jean Darveau and Simone Labory that I have been able to connect. Please feel free to look yourself up in the index or just browse the family tree. I may have more information about you in the database, but the web site only shows names and sex for living people. If you have comments, corrections, additions, or deletions, please contact me by email, snail mail, or phone. I would especially like to hear from you if you can't find yourself in this tree (click on Search above or look for your name in the Index or in the Surname list located at the top of content pages.) I nearly always use birth names as they appear on birth certificates, not married names.

This descendancy contains 9,861 names of which 2,310 are Darveau(x). Still, there are hundreds of descendants of this couple that are not accounted for. Many of the female lines haven’t been carried forward to the present because of the name change that normally occurs. There are an additional 412 people (207 are named Darveau(x)) in my database that I haven't yet connected to the main tree.

I would like to thank all the people, over the years, who have helped me collect the data contained in this research. Some of the major contributors are: Rene Benjamin Chevalier, Richard Joseph Darveau, John (Jack) Donald Darveaux, Diane Lucille Darveau, Reneé Sue Darveau, and René Darveau.

I especially would like to thank my wife, Bettina, and my children Shawn, Theresa, and Natalie for their patience while I indulge in my passion for genealogy. It is, as much for them, as well as for future generations and researchers, that I continue this work.
