I have an ancestor who's marriage record is listed in the Drouins as 07/14/1835 in Saint Ours, Quebec. It does not give his parents names but instead lists him as 'of age'. I have a guesstimate date for his birth based off of census materials as 1810. Is there anyway of tracing his parentage like maybe articles in a local paper...oh yeah - i don't speak or read french. I believe his death certificate lists his parents as Joseph Mathieu and M. Josephte Papillon, I would just really like to find a record of his birth. The only Michel Mathieu I see in St Ours was born 5 years ahead of the date given through census records and his father is Francois Mathieu. Any help with this would be wonderful!
