This Family Tree combines the Hebert (ABARE) and McGivern families. With the aid of Canadian Genealogist, Town and County Clerks, relatives and ambitious siblings we have garnered a mass of ancestors we can be very proud of. The Hebert's are Acadian French while the McGiverns are Irish. Tracing the Hebert's was made easier because much research has been done on this line, and is found back to 1630's. Tracing the McGiverns has been and remains much more difficult, appearing about 1830's in Quebec.

We were astonished to learn of the 1755 Exodus of the Acadians to the Colonies, Carribean and France. And more astonished to learn that many Frenchmen were lost at sea because of unseaworthy ships. The Irish it appears to us, were brought to Canada to populate the country for England.

As the saying goes, Time heals all wounds. My French father and my Irish mother found each other and hence a Family Tree is made.

The Hebert's migrated from LaPrairie to Peru, NY then to Charlotte, VT. and eventually to Burlington, VT. It almost appears that they were heading back to Canada.

The McGiverns are found in Magog, Quebec and moved closer to the US border in Derby Line.

Both ancestral lines were farmers with large acres. They worked hard and lived a simple life. We are proud of our heritage and have enjoyed learning of our past.

We will continue to search for other "Cousins" and our connection to Ireland. And if you can help us in our venture, please do.
