The Marler Family in Quebec by Eric Marler, M.D.
Quebec is a living tapestry with many threads. When Europeans first explored Quebec, Native Americans had already learned how to survive harsh winters and hot summers. In fact had not the natives helped support the mariners with cedar tea, they would have perished from scurvy, and we would not have the rich human endowment that stems from France. My own ancestor came with the British army to fight in the War of 1812. After the war, he emigrated to Montreal in the Eastern Townships. His descendants became notaries in Montreal. Eventually they escaped the heat and humidity of Montreal by spending their summers in the Lower St. Lawrence.
