Notes: This history will become the basis for my September 2011 tutorial at the Parker Genealogical Society. (Another example French Canada search for Francois Lafaye & Marguerite Foret/Forest is also underway at ManyRoads and may be used during the tutorial.) Hyperlinks on this page will most often open source documents. Comments, suggestions & questions are(…)
Hmm… the top 10 genealogy items for ManyRoads this year are… I wish I could say this list was complete, but it isn’t. But in the spirit of celebration, here’s my list: 10. Being invited to speak on genealogy at two locales during the year (Public speaking). 9. Accumulating copies of the Zeyer ev. Kirche(…)
What do you do when there are no names or dates to work with? Well quite simply, there has to be something or else you are in deep trouble! Having said that there are many times when the names are and dates are unclear, indefinite or conflicting. I have found a few options that work(…)
PART I JOSEPH YON (JOSEPH DEYO) 1805-1880-PLUS INTRODUCTION Joseph Yon was born around the year 1805. His parents, Ignace Yon (Guyon) and Marie Suzanne Gervais were of the Parish of St. Marc sur Richelieu. It is believed Joseph lived in the area of St. Marc until his marriage at about the age of twenty three.(…)
As hard as it was for me to believe, our Deyo family name is not from the Netherlands and/or Huguenot communities as I had earlier thought but rather it comes down a more circuitous, and I might say “interesting” route. Let me explain what I have thus far unearthed: Leona Deyo, my grandmother (father’s mother)(…)
It pleases me to say that I have identified the entire male Deyo line from John Deyo through to Claude Guyon (born 1629). The Deyos as we all knew were from France. Now we know their names and a bit about their journey. As I find additional information, I will continue to update and post(…)
It is with special gratitude, appreciation, and ‘apologies’ to the following individuals: Barb Deyo, Wilfred Deyo (deceased), Linda Hayne, Craig LaPine Patti Gravel, Gloria Pratt, Carole Relation that I can now tell the tale of our Dion Family (today most commonly known as the Deyo Family) and their migration from Quebec to the Clinton County(…)
If you look at the attached record you will find the following Joseph Dion/Deo/Deyo family residing in Quebec during the 1851 Census. This both firmly places the family in St. LaColle, near Montreal. We also now know through related birth documents of these ‘newly found’ children (for me ‘new’ at least…), the parents birth names(…)
The Deyos- 1800-1982 [written by Wilfred Frank Deyo circa 1982] The writer, Wilfred Frank Deyo will incorporate -the following information available as of October 8, 1982 into the “Deyo Family History”- 1800-1982-From Canada to the United States of America which he hopes to put together in the not too distant future.
Maybe your family is like mine. We come from a long line of hard working, salt of the earth people. Yes, that means many of them could not read or write.
Some names can be confusing! I think the title of this post bears that out. Recently I received the following note from Gloria Cusson Pratt of the Northern New York- American Canadian Genealogical Society. Her note informed me of the following: John married as Jean Baptiste Dion to Marie Bonin on 2 July 1866 at(…)
Genealogy requires assumptions… Over the past few weeks, I have been working on discovering (perhaps rediscovering) a family line. My Deyo family tree was incorrect, in a major way!
Based on data and input I have received from various people, I believe I have traced and documented a “plausible” genealogy for the Joseph Deo family leading back to France in the late 1600s. If anyone is interested in reviewing the tree and commenting on what I have pieced together, please contact me.
Data Quality is the first in a series of posts on “Genealogy Gotchas”. (I thought this might present useful tips & pointers to our readers while I await your votes on my little poll.)
This document and information is sourced from email messages sent to Mark Rabideau by Patty Gravel. In 1982 Wilfred Deyo, the son of Richard Deyo and the grandson of Eli Deyo, went to Altona to trace the Deyo family line. While there he met with family members to gather their oral history. His findings made(…)
For those of you who keep track of such things, here’s a quick list of our latest discoveries and happenings. The German Red Cross wrote and provided a wealth of information on Frieda Senger’s internment in the Soviet Gulag system after WW2. This information has been more than 60 years in coming.

Note: I have solved this mystery and established the link. John’s parent’s were, in fact, Joseph Dion (Deo- Deyo) and Julia (Julie/ Julienne) Denis (Denys, Lafay, LaFaille, Dennis). The most commanding piece of obvious genealogical evidence is immediately below (John’s death certificate). [singlepic id=2945 w=320 h=240 float=center] As for the rest of the story, I(…)

Lest we forget the insanity of war… these images are dedicated to all whose lives were unalterably changed by WW1 and its aftermath.
