Researching LECLAIR/LECLERC of Pince Edward Island

Journal by henryleclair

Hello,

I am just starting out here. Seems a little daunting but here goes. I will soon travel to PEI for vacation. My lineage goes back to the LECLAIR/LECLERC of PEI (Tignish?). I come from the LECLAIR's of Lowell, Massachusetts. From what I understand the LECLERC's of PEI traveled to Lowell during the height of the industrial revolution when Lowell had a booming textile industry. My name is Henry Michael LECLAIR, my father's name is Henry Joseph LECLAIR, his father's name was Joseph (Pierre?)LECLAIR, married to May O'MALLY (maiden name). I think my great grandfather was Pierre LECLAIR (LECLERC), married to Violet LECLAIR (LECLERC) of PEI. This is where I start, I hope some of you may be able to help me fill many pieces of this puzzle.

Kind regards,
Henry Leclair

Hello Henry,
I'm a cousin of yours and fellow family history researcher. I'm a son of Raymond J. LeClair of Dracut. I attended Ste. Therese School with your uncles, Forrest and David. I've been looking for them for a while in order to trace how we are related and to share information, records and photos that I have collected over the past ten years. I have researched our family from Lowell to PEI to St. Pierre & Miquelon all the way to the 1600s in Bretagne, France. I've travelled to both PEI and Bretagne, from where the LeClerc family migrated to N. America. In 2008 after I found the parish records of the Bretagne LeClerc family, I shared them on Ancestry.com, so a number of folks have them on their trees now. You may by now as well. I have lots more to share and would appreciate help in completing the LeClair/LeClerc tree by learning more about the other LeClair families in the greater Lowell area and New England. Please contact me at raymond_leclair@acsi.org.
Bye!
Raymond Le Clair
