This book tells the story of the first Canadian ancestor, Pierre Tremblay, originally from Perche in France, and ancestor of all the Tremblays of America. He married Ozanne Achon in Quebec in 1657, and they would later settle in the Charlevoix region. The Tremblays of Charlevoix will have descendants in Saguenay, Quebec, Canada and the United States. The Tremblay family will be the largest of French origin in America.

This story begins in 1445 with Gervais Du Tremblay in France, the first Tremblay ancestor to be found in Quebec and Charlevoix. We follow the migration path of this family in Canada and the United States and in particular two branches of this family: the family of Thomas Tremblay-Mathias and Louis-Jérôme Tremblay-Romaine in 1925.

Mathias Tremblay, born in 1800 is the grandfather of Thomas Tremblay. He left Malbaie to settle with his family in Saguenay in 1843. Mathias Tremblay's descendants spread throughout Quebec, Ontario and the United States and became the Tremblay-Mathias branch.

Jérôme Tremblay, born in 1799 is the grandfather of Louis-Jérôme Tremblay. Jérôme Tremblay is the son of André Tremblay and Romaine Mercier. Jérôme Tremblay will be among the first to arrive in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region as a member of the Société des Vingt-et-un. The descendants of André Tremblay are widespread throughout Quebec and the United States and become the branch of Tremblay-Romaine.

This book also tells the story of several descendants of these two families who will have an impact on the history of business in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. This book includes the Warren, Harvey, Boudreau, Savard, Girard, Lessard, Bouchard, Bergeron, Gauthier, Gagnon families. We trace their history from New France.
