I've started building The Tremblay Family Home Page, on Family Tree Maker Online, to solicit and offer genealogy information from visitors to that Web site.
You can also visit my Genealogy page ...
There is an Association des Tremblay d'Amerique and you can find its Web site at:
Here's the address if you want more information:
And here's a new website concerning the October 2007 350th wedding anniversary of Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Achon. All Tremblays in America, whether living or dead, descend from this couple matrried on October 2, 1657, in the Church of Notre-Dame-de-Quebec.
I've run across Canadian Web sites with very good information about some of my ancestors (these sites are written mostly in French, with some English):
Mass Intentions: every March 12 - in memory of Rene Tremblay | every March 19 - in memory of Therese Tremblay
Day of Remembrance: every July 30 - in memory of Therese and Rene Tremblay
Quoting from "John and Sandi's Old Schoolhouse" (former web site),
Pierre Tremblay emigrated to "New France" circa 1652. I've heard there are tens of thousands of Tremblays living in North America who are all descendants of this single journeyman. Although there are several different spellings, "Tremblay" is the original.
Here is the family crest, from the Association des Tremblay d'Amerique web site:

I finally found some Notre Dame Cemetery information and have added it to this site.
Here are some interview ideas to collect oral history.
The latest addition is the introduction of the Collected Sayings of Rene Tremblay - feel free to send me additions.
The following map shows the distribution of Tremblays across the United States in 1920 and 1990:
There is even a Tremblay salamander (ambystoma.tremblayi) - to learn more, visit:
There are no male Tremblay's Salamanders, they're all females. Not only that, Manitoba Herps Atlasthey are triploid. That is, they have three sets of chromosomes, instead of the normal two that most animals, including we humans have. And they reproduce by parthenogenesis: the females lay eggs that do not need to be fertilized to start developing into a new embryo. They do, however, have to mate with a male blue-spotted salamander to stimulate their eggs to develop into embryos. (Still with me?) The triploid, all-female Tremblay's Salamanders are sexual parasites on the Blue-spotted Salamanders. Male Blue-spotted's waste their time and sperm on the Tremblay's, which are dependent on the presence of the former species to continue to exist.
Quoting from The Salamander Chronicles - Descriptive characteristics,
