This site contains many generations of ancestry information on numerous family names. It is the result of an ongoing genealogy research effort to trace back my own Couture family bloodline. Apparently, all or most of the Coutures in the United States and in Canada relate back to, and descend from a common set of ancestral roots originating in New France in early 1600's. Our shared filial ancestor is Guillaume Couture who was a lay Jesuit missionary born on January 14th, 1617 or 1618 in Rouen, Normandy in Northern France and who died on April 4th, 1701 in Quebec City.
In my effort to research my family's past; I encountered an obstacle when I got to my great-grandparents. My great-grandfather was Samuel Couture who was born somewhere in Quebec on July 10th, 1866, but he lived much of his adult life in Northern Ontario and according to both his Muskoka County death record and an obituary published in the Huntsville Forester he died in Huntsville, Ontario, Canada on Mar 3rd, 1916. The connections to his father John and his mother are a little sketchy. This website also documents my attempt to research the family tree in reverse by starting back at Guillaume Couture (aka Cousture) and collecting and connecting tree branches with the hope that mapping out the historical linage of the Couture line might ultimately help complete the family picture and maybe help other family tree researchers that are searching the internet.
If you are also researching any of the family lines or persons represented on this site please let me know.
