Riviere-Ouelle: Une Paroisse Canadienne au XVII Siecle

riviereouellebookrectangle-001

One day I was on my knees in a cramped, second-hand book shop in the east end of Montreal. What was I doing there? I was rummaging through a slighly damp, crumpled cardboard box shoved up under a metal shelving unit. Under a pile of old French cathechism books and church notices, I noticed an ornate red leather binding sticking out. It turned out to be an original copy (1890) of Abbe. Casgrain‘s “Une Paroisse Canadienne au XVII Siecle – La Riviere-Ouelle” – a parish history covering the Riviere-Ouelle of the 17th century. Continue reading

Berube, Emond, Roussel Memorial Headstone

This is one of the memorial headstones that I photographed during my genealogical vacation in Riviere-Ouelle a few years ago. It was placed there by the Association des Roussel d’Amerique in honour of Jacques Roussel (1720-1805) and his first and second wives. His wives were  Marie-Genevieve Berube (1731-1766) and Genevieve Gabrielle Emond (1735-1802). The stone also states that Jacques Roussel was from Evran in Bretagne (France). The final inscription at the bottom calls these couples : “the ancestors of the Roussels in America”.
