Oops on the typo--I made stupid typo like that ALL DAY yesterday! Good thing
you knew what I meant...
I would be a very happy researcher if I could just figure out how to find
the parents of my Marie Anne David
dite Maritaine. The 1806 contrat de mariage between her and Jean-Marie
Villeneuve refers to
her as "fille naturale" and she needed the court to assign an ad hoc tuteur
because she was underage
(in 1806). Sigh. The surname of David shows up only on some of the baptisms
of their children, and her
burial record names her as Marie Anne Villeneuve,
Only two of the couple's children were alive in 1832 at the time of their
father's death, their mother having
passed in 1820. Their son--my 3x-great grandfather--Jean Marie Villeneuve
went to Tweed, Hastings Co.,
Ontario and married in about 1835, a marriage for which no record has been
found. The other child,
Adelaide, was 14 in 1832, and her fate remains a mystery. I have seen the
tutelle that was written in 1832
for these two children, but the entire film was blurry and I could not make
out the details. I would like to
reorder the film, but it seems that no one in Salt Lake City can locate the
film roll. So, it would seem that
I will never know anything more about this family group...
So, if anyone has any thoughts on how I might learn some of these things, I
will be most grateful.
Good luck to you too, Renee, I'm always happy to help when possible.
