A reprint of The Taillon (Tyo) Families and the Descendants of Philippe Lalonde has been made available by GlobalGenealogy.
Compiled by Duncan MacDonald and Pauline Deshaies, the 219-page book is a detailed genealogy of the Taillon (Tyo) family who were early settlers in Stormont County, Ontario, Canada.
The genealogy records of the family as recorded in this book, begins in France five generations earlier than Joseph Taillon’s arrival in Stormont County. He was born in Quebec and died in 1838 in Cornwall, Ontario (Upper Canada).
The family originally emigrated to Quebec from France, then migrated from Quebec to Stormont County. Some of the family later migrated to Upper New York State from which there has been a significant descendancy. The Lalonde family married into the Taillon family hence the inclusion of the descendancy of the Lalondes in this book.
The book was originally published in 1994.
How GlobalGenealogy received the rights to print this book is an interesting story.
GlobalGenealogy.com acquired MacDonald Research Centre after the passing of its founder and primary transcriber/compiler, Duncan MacDonald. The book has been reprinted as it was prepared by Mr. MacDonald, without corrections or additions. Much of MacDonald’s original work was created on a typewriter. His well-worn masters were made on a photocopier.
In the description of the book, GlobalGenealogy explained there are some imperfections. “This book’s original master has some page edges cut off in the newspaper clippings section, The print masters were provided by Mr MacDonald’s estate, so we suspect that all previous editions of this book had the same problem. We thought it best to include those pages because the content of those clippings are still useful insofar as it is usually only one letter missing along the page edge, leaving the affected clippings largely intact.”
