Travelling back in time 348 years, from 2010 to 1661 with Morin descendants.
Hello! I have recently sent in my dad's Y-dna test and am impatiently awaiting the results. Has anyone else done a dna test? I'm hoping to find other descendants of Pierre Morin dit Boucher to be able to compare and triangulate.
Feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Generation No. 1
1. PIERRE MORIN DIT1 BOUCHER1 was born 1634, and died 1690. He married MARIE MARTIN 1661 in Port Royal, daughter of PIERRE MARTIN and CATHERINE VIGNEAU. She was born 1637, and died 17 Sep 1714 in Québec2.
Irene Morin Fox ( 18 Apr 1902 – 31 Oct 1974 ) was the eighth child of Frederick Nelson Morin, youngest son of Antoine Morin and Émélie dit Larivière and brother to Philippe Morin married to Sara Summers.

The 2010 Morintrek dvd is almost ready for distribution. We have most of the addresses of those who will love it. Contact Gerry if you are worried that you are not on the mail-out. I've begun the translation of J.Y. Morin's book l'Odyssée des Morin so that our English speaking members will get to enjoy learning about the first three generations of our ancestors, Pierre Morin dit Boucher , his son Pierre Morin dit Boucher and then his son Charles Morin. The author, Jacques Yvan Morin…Continue

When the 1901 census was taken in Cumberland, Ontario, the following Morin families were living within close proximity of each other.…
Here's what I'm up to with the Morintrek. The earlier part of our family history has been very well documented by Jacques-Yvan Morin in his book L'Odyssée des Morin. I met with him this past week and I have begun translating this book into English. It covers his whole family history up to his father. The first two generations are the same as ours and then the chapter on Pierre Morin III has a lot in common with our ancestor Charles Morin of the same…Continue

I wasn't sure what to do with the morintrek, but have decided to keep it alive for the next year. I'll do some editing over the next while and start putting up the aftermath of our trip.
Please feel free to use this site to contact me in the meantime. I'll be meeting Jacques Yvan Morin, the author of l'Odyssee des Morin, a very well written account of his ancestors who are also ours for the first two generations. We have a tentative agreement to translate the book into English and…Continue

Having accompanied Morin descendent Amery (Anne-Marie to some of you) Boyer on the trek, I want to say that I truly enjoyed the trek, meeting some participants for the first time, and renewing acquantainces with others - and I particularly want to recognize and thank Gerry for his lead role in organizing the trek itinerary and sharing his genological research along the way - the latter including the preparation of the power-point presentations, obviously reflected a lot of work but they…Continue

Because of my health the last couple of years, although I'm starting to feel better now, I won't be making the trek with all of you, but my heart and soul are with you. I've already spoken (by email) to Gérard about this.…Continue
You will notice that there is now a regal presence on your wonderful website. This is a wonderful family gathering of major proportions and I wish all a great Trek and a wonderful time in Annapolis Royal.

It would be great to show registration numbers on the site somehow. Also, the tag line at the top of the home page should be changed to read 2010 instead of 2009.
