|About The Chaumont, Baril, Verrette and Marcotte Family Tree website
Welcome to the Chaumont, Baril, Verrette and Marcotte Family Tree website. My name is
Doris Chaumont Peixoto and I am the webmaster of this site. Please contact me if you have any
comments or feedback. And please don't forget to sign the guest book!
This website is in honor of my late father Leopold Chaumont. I remember as a child
being fascinated by all the stories my father would tell us about his family. He once
described seeing a wall hanging of the Chaumont family tree while visiting Bishop
Conrad Chaumont (1875 to 1966) in Montreal. His eyes shone brightly while talking about this
great discovery in great detail, saying that it was traced all the way back to France.
After my father's death in 1984, I was determined to find this family tree. After
trying without success, I decided that I was going to trace my family on all 4 sides on my own:
The Chaumont and Baril's on my father's side and the Verrette and Marcotte's on my
mother's side. I had no clue where to begin! Remember this was before computers and the
internet! Luckily I had assistance from the Public Archives of Canada, The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter day Saints where we could order microfilm and the good ole Tangay Dictionary that could
be found in libraries of small Norther Ontario towns! It has been a labor of love and a wonderful
fascinating experience. Working on my family tree has giving me the opportunity to meet WONDERFUL
people and to make newfound friends! Like Seeburn Chaumont and Pierre Lagacé say: Genealogy is
in the blood!
I would like to take this moment to thank the following people who have provided
information as well as pictures:
My uncle Roger Chaumont
Cousin Odyle Toupin
A huge thank you to Pierre Lagacé webmaster of: Les Ancêtres de Ste. Anne des Plaines
who has been so generous in sharing pictures, lots of info and tips on how to do
genealogy research. He has been a wonderful guide and friend! We get into long e-mail
debates on the information we find. It is great fun! Merçi beaucoup Pierre!

Your help and kindness is greatly appreciated!
I sincerely hope that you enjoy this website as much as I do. It is a work in progress as I'm
combing through a lot of the Quebec parish records through the Mormon Family Search
website. If you have any information that you would like to share please do so!
