Evelyn In Montreal: Pierre (Pedro) dit le Portugais m. Jeanne Greslon / Laviolette

Bonjour Evelyn,
I am hoping you might be able to help me. I also live in Montreal and am working on my own family history. Pierre (Pedro) Da Silva is my great grandfather (11 times). I have looked through many of the Drouin records (on ancestry.ca) for his marriage to Jeanne Greslon dite La Violette in 1677, but can’t find the specific record. I’ve looked through Château-Richer, Beauport, Québec Notre-Dame and cannot find any mention. Would you be able to direct me to the right place?
Many thanks,
Kim

Information

In my database I have the following sources:

1. Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec - Dictionnaire …

Click on – Dictionnaire genealogique – Volume 1, 1608-1700, Dictionnaire, D, page 158 D’AR – DAU

2. Drouin Dictionnaire National des Canadiens Francais, page 342,

My Drouin research was done in pre-computer times from the hard copy index, and the online Drouin Index – as you’ve probably noticed – contains many mis-spellings for the Dasilva name (e.g. Decilva). My suggestion is to check your library index to see the Drouin spelling and then check back again at Ancestry.

 3. The marriage information in my database is:

16 May 1677   L’Ange Guardien – Quebec.

 

Information from researcher D. Ritchot

Bonjour,

The marriage record of Pierre DaSylva dit Le Portuguais &  Jeanne Greslon dit Laviolette can’t be found on the L’Ange Gardien parish register or any other parish registers of New France. They were married before P. Vachon, notary, May 16, 1677. The contract is available at the Archives nationales du Quebec (ANQ) on microfilm. I can check at my local genealogical library to see if a transcription is available.

Note: Another post contains links to places to contact Dominique Ritchot online.
