  2. I have a Felix Beaulieu married 1911 to Agnes Madore and a Felix Beaulieu married to Eleonore Boissei (could be Bosse). Remember, all the girls were christened “Marie or Mary” then the name they were known as. Like Marie Agnes Madore. odiliasumner@gmail.com

    • Hello – you have lots of the old Nouvelle France lines 🙂
      If you’re interested in any pioneer lines that I haven’t done yet then let me know.

      • Hi Evelyn,
        My dilemma is with a Dubé (Pascal) ancestor who married Lavinia (Johanna) MacEacharn. I can’t seem to find a birth certificate for her (she would have been born in Ireland); I have her father’s name Peter MacEacharn, and mother Margaret Hamilton. I can’t find any information about Lavinia’s parents. It was a total surprise to me with all the french ancestors in my family tree that came from France to Québec to find this one.

        Are there any Dubé’s out there that have the same line?

        Thank you for all the time and work you’ve done to put this website together! I am fascinated and in awe.

        • Hello Linda,
          Was she a Catholic do you think? If so have you already tried the Irish Catholic Archdiocese to see if they have it? I don’t know if they have the same system as Quebec where they keep the historical registries but I would imagine they do.
          Did she emigrate with her parents and if so did you find them in the ships records. That’s always interesting.
          Good luck with your search,
