Would anyone know where I could find the complete family tree of Canadian explorer David Thompson?

This is proving to be more difficult than I thought. Any Canadian history buffs out there willing to point me in the right direction?

Update:

Tried that google search with that phrase and no luck. Thanks, guys!

    Do you mean ancestors or descendants? His ancestry is unknown, but he had quite a few children
