About the Girouard Family
There are two Girouard families in North America. We can assume that they are ancestors from the same family in old France. This focus of this web site is the first Girouard family to come from France and settle in North America around 1650. This was Francois Girouard and his wife Jeanne Aucoin. They left France and came to North America to live in Port Royal, Acadia, New France. Today this is now known as Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada. The group of French people that established this colony have came to be known as the Acadians.
