The Guertin Family

The Guertin`s crest
Me with my Grand-Father Nöel and my Dad Pierre in 2001.

This is a page dedicated to LOUIS "Dit Le Sabotier" GUERTIN.
He was the first Guertin to come to North America and he is the origin of all Guertin in the new world.

I visited France in May 2012, have a look a this Powerpoint on my discoveries in Louis birthplace!

Our first descendant to "Nouvelle France" is credited, along with other recruits, with saving the village of Hochelaga (Ville-Marie) in 1653 from the constant Iroquois attacks.
At that time Ville-Marie, later to become Montréal, was a newly established trading post on the St-Laurence river and it was struggling to survive with only a few handful of inhabitants left.
Louis, our Hero, was recruited from France by Governor Maisonneuve in what is known as " La Grande Recrue" or The Great Recruitment.
For more details on his life, "La Grande Recrue" and his descendants, please visit: Guertin Genealogy page (Thanks must go to Dennis Guertin and his site, for some help on many of the dates below.) I would also like to thank Serges Guertin for his support and relentless work on the subject.
