Hello:
I just found out that my Frégeau dit LaPlanche ancestors that left Poitiers, Pictou, France for Quebec prior to 1699.
Can someone tell me where to find vital records in the area of Poitiers ?
Are there any Frégeau families in the area ?

Hi,
According to http://www.geopatronyme.com/index.htm, between 1891 and 1990, it seems that FREGEAU people moved from the Vienne (86) county (Poitiers being the main town of the county) to the Charente-Maritime (17) county (main town being La Rochelle), which is westward located, but not too far.
And according to http://www.pagesjaunes.fr (on line french phone directory) there is still three FREGEAU who have a phone number in the Charente-Maritime county (go to pagesjaunes.fr, select "pages blanches", and then type FREGEAU in the "Nom" area, let "prénom" and "localité" areas blank and enter "17" in the "département ou région" area, and you will get the postal address and phone number you want.
It seems that your name means "fresh (or cold) water", freg being an occitan (old language in Southern France) word for "fresh" and "eau" meaning "water".

I forgot to tell you that I placed a mail in the french forum regarding genealogical data bases in Poitiers area. I'll keep you posted about results.
