Thank you for the Pilot link, Doreen,
Now I can play, too. ;-)
I read "super impedimento mixti connubei". Not too sure about thelast
word as it means nothing to me. But this is probably some strange way of
stating, as you suggests, a dispensation for the religious disparity of
A more common formulation of this type of dispensation is "super
impedimento disparitatis cultus".

>> Looking at the marriage of John Miller and Bridget Burden [actually Barden] on May 29, 1867 in Montreal, Basilica of Notre Dame on image 459 of 824 in Ancestry and continuing on image 460. I'm good through the dispensation of the 3 Banns but hit a stumbling block on the "super impedimento". The image is difficult for my old eyes to read. I do have the balance of the record. Bridget is one of my Megantic Irishmen I am following.
