How to Use this Site

There is a lot of information buried in the Picard Surname Homepage site. You may wish to work through these questions to help you get the most out of the site. Goto the first question now...

1. Do you know the specific 17th or 18th century immigrant to French Canada (Nouvelle France) of the lineage you are working on?
Yes. Go to the lineage directly through the family lineage links listed on the Picard Surname Homepage. Generally, only the first 3 to 5 generations have been put on the website. Additional descendent information may be available on many lines from my database.

No. Go on to question 2.

2. Do you think your line is one of the ancestrial lines listed at the Picard Surname Homepage website, but you are not sure?
Yes. Use the search engine on the Picard Surname Homepage to find possible matches to your ancestors.

No. Go on to question 3.

3. Did the immigrant of your lineage arrive in North America in the 19th or 20th century?
Yes. I do not have these lineages posted at the website, but I do have many 19th and 20th century lineages in my database. These include immigrants from France, Germany, England, and Belgium who settled in various places in the United States and Canada, including New York, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania. Contact me directly with your query.

No. Go on to question 4.

4. Do you have information on your lineage from the late 18th century or the 19th century, but are not sure how the lineage connects back to French Canada (Nouvelle France).
Yes. Try using the Picrad Surname Homepage website search engine, as a few of these families, such as those of the Picard-Pecors in Oconto, Wisconsin, the Picards in Pointe Coupee, Louisiana, and the Picards-Pecores of Clayton, New York are posted on the website. If you have no success, contact me directly with your query.

No. If you have answered no for all questions above, then this site is probably not going to help you initially but it will surely acquaint you with the Picard surname and it's variants, and maybe provide you with some clues to research furthur. I have a huge database that is constantly being updated, so please contact me directly with your query.
