"Try communicating with the parish in Sarsfield as they are all perfectly bilingual. I know the area somewhat as my mother lived in Sarsfield as a child (1909 - 2002). You may very surprised how accommodating and friendly they may be."

"Ahoy!", Ray. If down Cape Fear River, Southport way, off the Inland Waterway, put into not the Dutchman's Creek side of the nuclear canal (actually passes under the Inland Waterway), but the other "Fish Factory Road" side (no factory) with lower park, then anchorage, continue pass the N.C. State boat ramp until abeam port-side, the Oak Island (on mainland) Park; ahead off you bow, atop the bluff; the two-story blue house with fish-weathervane gazebo is home; free anchorage below.

Or just put into the Southport State boat anchorage, walk over to PJ's, a great place to eat good, cheaply. And I'll meet you there: a little coffee & genealogy and my lie about that 80-foot wave. No one else believes me.

Likely your website link is good and it's just my bad computer; but one of the two did not work.

Ray, my maternal grandmother was Edna Frances Marentette from Malden, daughter of Francis, also from Malden. The family was in the Malden/Amherstburg area from sometime in the mid 1700's, before which they were in Montreal and the line goes back to Nicolas Gode.

Hi Ray
I have a handwritten copy of my grandparents marriage, but unfortunately it is written in French and I can only understand some of the words. I was sure that I read something on here that you would be willing to do translations from French to English. It would be much appreciated if you would be able to do this for me. Thanks

Ray,
You are a sweetheart to help a southern lady/albet even though I came from Michigan originally..haha I know some of the family are on the Loiselle tapes and found them there, the Fortin line is dead from my standpoint. The death certificate did not have his parents names and although there were many Fortins in Bay City where the ggparents died and buried, I have not found WHO were related yet. It is like a puzzle. Have always liked figuring things out..regrettably this has me stumped. Will write more later. I am delving into the census things and hope something shows up there. Your southern friend Debbie

Dear Ray,
My mother was born in Canada while her mother was visiting her family in 1910. Consequently, she was born Canadian though she was raised in Michigan. She had to be naturalized when she was 40. I am in the process of trying to get that record. My problem is that I cannot find where my gg
Joseph Fortin came from and who his parents were. The only thing I know for sure is that he was born(24-06-1849) in Montreal/or Quebec. His parents died and he was raised by the nuns in a convent in Montreal (or so the story goes). I know who he married but not where. He married Mary(Marie) Chartrand who came from the Ste Marthe area. She was born 17-06-1860. Her parents were Moise (Moyse) Chartrand and Rose Campeau (who were married in St Clet 01-Oct 1853. So though I am of French Canadians Lalonde/Fortin/Leonard/Sequin I have been lost for some time.
Would you please help me? I do not know who to contact. I guess I am truly a beginner in this endeavor. I am an old nurse who still works (though right now I am recovering from shoulder surgery) I am married, have four grown children and 9 gkids. I have been blessed as a missionary nurse in other countries. Now it is time to do some things for my family. Thankl you if you can help me at all.. Debbie

Yes I did. I have been researching my husband's family along with mine. His mother and grandparents were from Canada. Names are Pilon and Bissonette. Have you come across these names anywhere in Canada?
