Genealogy follows two major directions: ancestry and progeny.
We will stick to that. We choose (as a first step, at least) to look at ancestry genealogy, mainly agnatic, i.e. which goes back to patronymic lineage. However, the spouse’s parents are also surveyed one generation back..
Our approach is based on two techniques:
What matters is not just aligning names and dates, but trying to trace their life histories. This is what Jackie Canivez (Lineage 028) has attempted to do with his encyclopedy, which gathers all written traces related to the Canivez (archives, studies, articles…).
DATA: everyone living or deceased having a proven and documented (archive, source,…) family relationship with a person bearing the names CANIVET, CANIVEZ, CAN(N)EVET, CANNEVÉ, QUENNIVET, etc.
Conditions:-bearing the patronym Canivet or any surname derived from this patronym -being a spouse -father and mother of a Canivet’s wife (grandparents of a Canivet) -brother and sister of spouses before 1792 (brings an added value for the reconstitution of Canivet families who lived under the Ancien Régime)
