Well someone wrote an e-mail.
This person is an avid reader of the French version of my blog on genealogy.
A few months ago, I wanted to stop writing my blog but this person sent me an-email to convince me to continue.
She told me she was reading it every morning while having her breakfast and her coffee. Since I did not want her to starve…
I continued on.
Since then, I have added this English version for my readers who cannot read French.
Let’s get back to James.
He is living in Memphis, Tennessee and, I am pretty sure, reads my English blog.
His wife is related to Nicolas Renaud.
Loulou – that’s my avid reader – had helped me a lot in my search for Nicolas Renaud.
Saturday morning she sent me this e-mail… I will translate because Loulou wrote in French of course.
I read your blog yesterday morning, but I did not have time to look through my notes that I had while searching for Nicolas.
Very late last night, I checked and BINGO, I was right.
Nicolas Renaud, son of Nicolas Renaud and Marie Louise Saint-Mars, was married to Elisabeth Normandin, daughter of Jean Normandin et late Marguerite Poulin, May 12, 1846 in Saint-Césaire, Québec.
Nicolas Renaud and Marie Louise Saint-Mars were married in Contrecoeur, Québec, on September 28, 1807, that you will have to check…
In the 1851 census, in Saint-Césaire, the name is not Elisabeth but Louise Normandain.
Louise age 3
Do you have a way to browse through the parrish registers on the FamilySearch site? Since they updated the site, I find it quite slow.
Each time I pray to God that the date I am looking for is at the beginning of the register.
I hope it’s the right Nicolas
I sent all this information to James and after, with what Loulou sent me, I was able to trace back James’ wife’s ancestors.
Come back next time…
