This is the 2nd in a series of posts in which I share marriages extracted from my database (A Canadian Family) where the groom was a Lagace/Mignier who descended from the Quebec pioneer couple Andre Mignier dit Lagace (Soldier of the Regiment Carignan) and his wife, the  “fille du roi” – Jacquette Michel.

Lagace/Mignier Marriages – A Canadian Family Tree (1) | Lagace/Mignier, Abraham to Bruno

This is the first in a series of posts in which I share marriages extracted from my database (A Canadian Family) where the groom was a Lagace/Mignier who descended from the Quebec pioneer couple Andre Mignier dit Lagace (Soldier of the Regiment Carignan) and the “fille du roi” – Jacquette Michel. The focus is on Quebec marriages from 1668 to 1921 in which the 20th century descendants carry the LAGACE surname (as opposed to Mignier or Meunier) You will also find  a  scattering of New Brunswick, Ontario and U.S. marriages.

2.  NAMES The forenames of Joseph or Mary (Marie) have been dropped.
