Surname Expansions

I bought a couple more CDs of parish marriage records – hoping to add some more information to my database. Tonight, I did some cleaning up in the database. Places that were marked as Ste-Marie were all changed to Marieville, Rouville County (one of the CDs I got). I was able to add some more Bessette individuals using this particular CD.

Almost 2 weeks ago, I added a ton of Desranleau people to the database. There was a shoestring connection with me and I was attempting to help someone out with their research, and I just figured, what the heck, let’s add ’em in. The more people I have, the easier it might be for somebody to find their surname and ancestry.

I have more work to do with the new CDs, but I have made a start. The other CD is for St-Hyacinthe county – that should be a big task.

1851 Canadian Census

I have been busy looking thru the scanned in images of from the Canadian Census of 1851. You cannot search by surname, but only by location. I scanned thru the St-Jean-Baptiste, Rouville, Quebec section looking for some Saurette people. I did find some and now I am putting the information together and making sure it all matches up with what else is know.

I should have some information to post in the next few days relating to the Saurette side. I am going to try and find some Oligny names too, but I have not been able to find St-Remi in the database. Stay tuned for images and my comments.
