Hi to my Queb cousins!
Yes, Shari, I am still digging away, and getting next to nowhere fast! But, I have found a little (new stuff), and am hoping to find more on my research trip coming up in 3 weeks to USL in Lafayette (anyone near there want to join me?). There is some good microfilm there that is only to be found at several places in the U.S. That is where I found the baptismal entry of a son of Joseph and Marie born in the Illinois country in Feb. of 1724, named Mathurin. Now, I have never seen him mentioned anywhere else, so I am for now deducing that maybe he didn't live very long.... But, I haven't nearly finished looking at that roll of microfilm, but that is where I will start bright and early Nov. 16th. I will try to get my findings posted on my "ahem" new website, located at
My daughter got a bit more put on it tonight, so I guess now is a good time for more eyes to start checking it out! Believe me, it is nothing fancy, and it is pretty skimpy right now, but my daughter is learning the HTML code, so I have to wait until she can get time and ability to post and create new pages!
Anyway, I have finally taken the plunge, so if anyone of you (PLEASE!!) has anything you can add from your research regarding the Quebs or if you have a query or suggestion, please, let me know! For now, it might be good to place queries in the guestbook along with "guestbook stuff" until my daughter gets to where she can create a real Query page.... Hopefully, we can help each other with our brick walls. Please spread the word so we can involve as many Queb researchers as possible and get even more of a huge Queb tree constructed and tear down more brick walls.
By the way, Shari, Joseph must have died early in the year 1745, from all I have seen so far and that means it would have taken place in the Illinois country. Hopefully, I will have a clearer picture of things after finishing the films I want to look at in November!
I am really interested to know what different places (archives, courthouses, libraries, etc.) everyone has done any Queb research in and which proved valuable (and in what area) and which did not! So far, I have done most of my research at Clayton Genealogical Library in Houston, Tx. which is very good for anyone, especially just getting started. But as far as finding stuff on the Queb line, I have just about exhausted their resources. That is why I am off to USL in 3 weeks to get closer to the nitty- gritty! The internet is great, of course and I am just starting to get into courthouse searches...
By the way, a roll call for this list would be a good idea for us to get to know who all is on this list so far, and which child of Charles they come through, for example and tell what they are working on at this time, so maybe we can help!
Gotta go...yall sign that guestbook!
