Home
Desserts in 1881 Census of Canada

ON THIS WEBSITE I HOPE TO GIVE THE GENEALOGY OF THE DESERRES / DESSERT FAMILIES WHO SETTLED IN THE UNITED STATES . IN THE 1881 CENSUS FOR CANADA MOST DESSERT FAMILIES LIVED IN THREE KEY AREAS OF QUEBEC .
 
THE FIRST AREA IS ST JOSEPH DE MASKINONGE AND THEN SPREADS TO ST AMBROISE DE KILDARE IN JOLIETTE COUNTY AND ST JACQUES DE L'ACHIGAN IN MONTCALM COUNTY .
 
THE SECOND AREA IS ST GUILLAUME D'UPTON IN YAMASKA . THE THIRD AREA IS ST PATRICE DE TINGWICK IN ARTHABASKA COUNTY .
