    Notes:

    He was a master carpenter and a builder, but what he is best known for is the oceanic immensity of his descent, in Quebec and around the world. According to Wikipedia, "By 1800, Cloutier had 10,850 French-Canadian descendants, the most of any Quebec colonist, according to marriage records studied by the Historical Demography Research Program of the Université de Montréal." Denis Beauregard's Genealogy of the French in North America estimates the modern Quebec descendants of Zacharie and Xainte Cloutier to number between 5,670,000 and 6,090,000. The entire population of Quebec in 2019 is just under 8,500,000.

    Cloutier descendants are said to include Madonna, Celine Dion, the Dionne quintuplets, Robert Goulet, Angelina Jolie, Jack Kerouac, Avril Levigne, Alanis Morisette, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, and Prime Ministers Louis St-Laurent and Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Specific descents for some of these people are given here (in French, but the trees are easy to follow). Other descents, such as the Trudeau family's, can be teased out of this site by using its relationship search function.

    According to Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, descendants of Zacharie Cloutier carry a higher-than-average risk of developing Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy.
