The marriage record image is on Ancestry. You would need a Canadian or World sub to see it (there are actually several versions, original and transcripts). If you don't have a sub, check if your local public library subscribes to Ancestry Library Edition.....this would give you access to the original records. Looks like Marie was able to sign for herself.....quite an accomplishment in those days.

When you go looking.....put just Marie and Boucher in the respective name slots and the year of the marriage in its place.

If you are near a Family History Center (the familysearch folk), they often subscribe to Ancestry as well.

There is always the possibility that Louis and Jeanne married in one place (her home?) and moved to the other (his home? work?). He may have been temporarily working in her area and so they met. Probably several other scenarios.


Hello ajf101 and a very warm welcome to RootsChat  :)

You need to make 3 posts in order to use the PM system. 2 posts to just say "Hi" would do it.

The original parish record of the marriage has Jean's parents as of the parish of St Germain de la Cime, Brie, (cathedral town of?) Sens, Burgundy.

I'm afraid I have no idea what info would be available for France but I think where Jean's parents married and where they are living at the time of his marriage would be places to start looking for a birth/baptism record. I haven't at this point found any records that indicate he was born in Quebec.

Perhaps the dit LaBrie comes from his birthplace locale? One never knows.

Thanks for the clarification.

Ok, I have just found the marriage of Jean and Marie-Xaintes in the Tanguay Collection. Hunting through it can be fiddly.

Could we have some clarification about dates please?

You have Louis and Jeanne marrying in 1664 and their son Jean marrying in 1869. This is more than 200 years later?

Also, if Elizabeth is deceased, it might help to know when and where she was born?

Probably had a fair bit to do with the Catholic Church.

Before you take out a sub to Ancestry, check if your local public library subscribes to the library edition. This would give you access to the Canadian records, including images, but not trees (if I remember correctly). Original images would be available for the records we have quoted to you herein.

You can access Canadian censuses for free at this link....

And this one....

To add to my note about the Drouin Collection, if you go back far enough in the Drouin Collection you will get into the Tanguay (sp?) Collection which is also apparently on line.

The only records available for Quebec in that time frame are parish records for baptisms, marriages, and burials which are on line in the Drouin Collection. Civil registration did not begin in Quebec until 1994 (Yes!).

About Alexina, Louis, and Philomine....

Marie Marguerite Alexina Goulet was born 19 May and baptized 20 May 1900 at Bienville, Parish of St Antoine, County Levis. Parents Louis Goulet and Marie Marcoux.

Louis Goulet, son of minor age of Louis Goulet and Dina Carrier, married Marie Marcoux, daur of minor age of Edourd Marcoux and Elisa Blais 25 Feb 1895, St Charles, Bellechasse County

Dina Carriere is with the family in the 1921 census.

Louis Goulet, widower of Marie Marcoux, married Philomene Prevost, daur of the age of majority of Charles Prevost and deceased Angele Bisson (?....hard to read her last name) 20 Oct 1903, St Charles, Bellechasse County.

So Marie appears to have died at some point. And the Philomine in the 1921 census is apparently not Philomine Martineau.

Louis Goulet is a relatively common Quebec name and so is Philomene. I don't believe this family is related to your Louis Goulet and Philomine Martineau, although there is always the possibilty they could be distantly related. I haven't looked into that possibility.

Hi there

In case you didn't have it, I thought I would post the military file for Thomas. Click on the PDF link part way down the page to download the complete file. It will be VERY slow to download.
