Marie Ann Aglae Paquette m. Felix Albert George Larocque

Enquiry:

“Hi, my name is Ernest Larocque.

I am looking for information on my grandmother Marie Ann Aglae Larocque (born Paquette). She was born 1891 in St-Venent-de-Paquette, East Hereford, Quebec. She married my grandfather Felix Albert George Larocque September 28, 1910 in Riviere Qui Barre, Alberta and died in New West Minster B.C.May 18, 1978. Both my parents have past away and our family doesn’t really know much about the Paquettes so I really am grasping to find information about the Paquette family.
I don’t have access to records and wondered if you would have any way to determine who Marie Ann Aglae’s parents were.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
Thank-you”

  2. Hello Ernest, I am a retired fed. govt. worker and have done many research at Archives Canada concerning our ancestors etc… I am not certain if you have ever tried there, but I gladly submit their web site below. I also know that there are people at the Archives who could do the leg work for you at a reasonable price, if you're interested, but I have no resources other than that. http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/search/Pages/ancestors-search.aspx Good luck in your search!
