Note: In addition to what is shown here, far more detailed research of the Brazeau family can be found on René Brazeau's site. We have not incorporated their research into this page, leaving our own earlier-derived sources intact, however comparison of data here to their site is highly recommended.
Following is a summary of the source of various data on the Brazeau and Quenneville Ancestors. Dates on the far left are just approximate to give one a general time frame:

David Brozo e-mail of 11/9/99:
From: David Brozo Date: Tue, 9 Nov 1999 15:13:16 EST Subject: Re: Brazeau family To: Bill Choisser The dates refer to Perette Billard. They were from copies made by a distant cousin and I believe they came out of the Tanguay's dictionary geneological of Canadian families the Elysee edition. She, the distant cousin was descended from Jean Bruseau from the area of Pointe aux Trembles and his parents Jean and Marie supposedly came from LaRochelle, France. I also see that there is Charles 1 b. 1662 died 4-25-1750 married to Genevieve Quenneville on 10-5-1693. Her father was Jean 1. Charles and Genevieve have listed 4-children: Gabriel b. 9-8-1694, Marie Catherine b. 1-14-1695, Paul b. 10-22-1697 and Pierre b. 10-19-1699.
Info from Pat Davidson 3/13/97:
Date: Thu, 13 Mar 1997 19:15:32 -0500 (EST) Hi everyone, I just got a short note from a Gladys Choisser who lives in Bethesda, Maryland. Her husband passed away recently. His name was Robert V. Choisser. She did send me some genealogical information. According to her, Jean Quenneville's parents were Pierre and Jeannie Saye. Denise Marie's parents were also Pierre and Jeanne Lord.
