Majo Family Genealogy

Northern New York

Below you will find the beginning chart of the ancestors of my maternal grandfather Merton E. Majo. The Majo family's first home in America was at Cape Vincent, New York on the St. Lawrence River. The oldest documented relative to date is Joseph Amable Majeau (the original french spelling) who was born near Montreal, in L'Assomption, Quebec, Canada in 1784.
