The information contained in the genealogy and other portions of this web site is provided solely for personal convenience. Many of the documents contained herein are historical in nature. Therefore, events or research following the date of publication or subsequently available information may have rendered obsolete portions of the displayed information. Much of the information is built upon the research of hundreds of other family, hobby or professional genealogists. The farther back in time that you follow a line, the more likely it is that you will eventually encounter an "ancestor" who is speculatative\not proven, legendary or even purely mythological. I make no claims as to the accuracy of such information, although I make every effort to work from authoritative sources and to cross-check source materials. I cannot and do not warrant that the information included in these pages is necessarily current. I assume no responsibility for the accuracy of the information and may change the content of the site at any time without notice. You should not assume that any ancient genealogy that you encounter (anything much beyond 1300 C.E.) is considered by me or anyone else as authoratative or historically factual. If any living individual listed on any of these pages wishes to remove any of the information pertaining to themself or a minor child, I will, upon email notification (mmarcotte@ou.edu), immediately oblige. This website is meant to illustrate the ancestries of various Marcotte forbearers’ including those of French Canadian and Acadian origins. Regarding Acadian genealogy, it is in no way meant to serve as a reference source. I have not personally traveled to Acadia\Nova Scotia to perform research on any Acadian ancestor. Most (not all) of my materials for these individuals have been derived from other internet sites and not primary sources, unlike most references for individuals surnamed Marcotte and certain more-closely related Québec lines. I have, nonetheless, attempted as much as was possible to utilize Acadian information for which there is archival support. Pages discussing speculative and increasingly controversial Métis\Amerindian lineages, which mention various archival or research sources reflect my personal, informed, albeit subjective opinion, and should not be construed to be an expert rebuttal of any professional researcher or institutional archive. For an authoritative reference of Acadian genealogies, I recommend that you consult Stephen White’s Dictionnaire généalogique des familles acadiennes. For an authoritative reference of French-Canadian (Québec) genealogies, I would recommend the late René Jetté’s Dictionnaire généalogique des familles du Québec, the University of Montreal’s Programme de recherche en démographie historique (PRDH), which is accessible on-line, or Denis Beauregard’s Dictionnaire généalogique de nos origins, much of which is also available on-line at Denis’ www.francogene.com website.

Any person who uses, or makes decisions upon, information contained in this web site does so at their own risk and agrees to hold Michael Marcotte harmless. Michael Marcotte further expressly disclaims all liability from any costs, damages or consequences of any type that may result from the reliance on the information obtained from this Internet web site or any Internet web site hereto linked.

Like hundreds of thousands of other web sites, the main menu page and Genealogy start page both utilize "visit counters" that capture basic information about connecting computers including your type of operating system, source IP address, geographic point of origin, data & time of visit. This information is collected solely for my information about how many hits these web sites collect, and will not be marketed or otherwise disclosed to another entity. The counters are provided as freeware by third party vendors who simultaneously gather this same information. Although the freeware vendors provide these counters with the same explicit promise, Michael Marcotte expressly disclaims all liability from any contrary actions taken by such external providers or any other web site hereto linked.
