A few years later since original posting, but am just starting my search. Any info on Frank Ovide Turcot originally from France would be welcome. He was born in 1871 and passed away in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1923. He had emigrated to Canada to Montreal and married Laura or Laure Morin. Had son Maurice Oscar Turcot, b. March 19, 1904 in Montreal Quebec.
Son Joseph Rene born Oct.19, 1893 b.in Montreal Quebec. Joseph (Rene) Turcot fought in WWI regimental #147982 78th Battalion and 100th Grenadiers.
Daughter Jeanne, b. Nov.1895, Montreal, Quebec.
Seeking more info on Frank and Laura.

Hi Evelyn, thanks so much! This is of great help and exciting news! We were always told that Frank (Ovide) immigrated to Canada from France, but maybe it was his parents? Is there any more information?



Hello (and Merry Christmas),
As noted in the previous posting, your Turcot ancestors were from France – but possibly as far back as the 17th century. Let’s see what we can do. I think your next generation might be the following because the names-dates-general region fit and the wife’s name is not common, HOWEVER please be cautious, use this as a lead and continue to research till you are sure this is your line.

Joseph Turaux (son of Jean Baptiste Turcaux and Marie Gagnon) married Angelique Duminil dit Cardinal (daughter of Claude Duminil dit Cardinal and Marie Josephte Benoit dit Laguerre) in St-Joseph Parish in Les Cedres, Soulanges, Quebec on Sept.16th, 1811. Husband’s occupation: Sculptor Source: Centre de genealogie francophone

This is one of a series of posts organized under the heading Evelyn in Montreal where I chronicle some of the work I have done with other family historians and genealogists. Some information is original to this site but some has previously appeared at Genforum, Rootsweb and other genealogy boards. I am reproducing them here as those boards are closing down in order to preserve my connections with those family researchers.
