Jean Guy Daoust
( 1930 - 2001)
A veteran of the Korean War, he now rests in the Field of Honor in Pointe Claire, Quebec.  Lake St. Louis is nearby!!  My father enjoyed my genealogy efforts and this site is dedicated to him.

(1676 - 1707)
Guillaume D'Aoust, a tailor by trade, was originally from Sissonne in Picardie, France. Although it is not known when he arrived in New France, on January 12th 1675 he signed a document with Benigne Basset, a Montreal notary.  He spent most of his life living on Lake St Louis at the western end of the island of Montreal. Several of those years were spent in Lachine.  His signature is found on many entries in the register above:  as a bridegroom, as a proud father, as a witness to events such as the Lachine massacre and a smallpox epidemic of 1703.

With this site, I would like to tell the story of Guillaume Daoust, the first of his name to have descendants in Quebec and in other parts of North America.  I also want to relate the information, I have found on the generations that followed - that relate to my direct line.  I will also bring into it, the families that connect through marriage with mine.  If an internet site exists for these families, I will provide a link.  I enjoy history AND my family's place in it.  I also enjoy photography so expect many pictures I have taken or found in various sources.  
Guillaume D'Aoust was among the first pioneers of present day Ste Anne de Bellevue (Ste-Anne-du-Bout-de-l'île). To view the story of this early Montreal island community AND web links to Guillaume's neighbors, click on the pic!
In 2003, Sainte Anne de Bellevue  celebrated its 300th anniversary.  Click logo to visit the official web site!!
