Gilles Parenteau is the descendant of Augustin Parenteau, second son of Pierre-Louis Parenteau and Marguerite Saint-Laurent.
A name, it’s a long story
Thanks to internet. Every Parenteau, descendant of Pierre Parenteau and Madeleine Tisseran, can know the roots of his own patronymic and the story of the three first generations in Canada.
The name Parenteau is a cultural legacy. All the North American Parenteau share the same story. Whoever you are, English or French Canadian, Quebecois, American or Native Parenteau, you are the descendants of a brave and humble Parenteau whose name was given to you as an heritage. That is the meaning of the coat of Arms of the Yamaska Gathering, at Yamaska in 1990.
