1906 France
« on: Tuesday 30 January 18 02:53 GMT (UK) »
Looking for the birth of a Marie Euginie Marescaux , daughter of a Jean Louis Marescaux and a Marie DeCock. Marie was born around 1906 believed to be in France. I believe Jean was born 21 Sep 1880 - Linselles, Departement du Nord, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France.

Thank you

Nord records are available online:
http://archivesdepartementales.lenord.fr/?id=etat_civil

In addition to civil records, they have matricules militares. Look for men in these records in the year they turned 20, they often track where they were living through the years as they went through military service.

Louis Jean Marescaux (swapping of first names not unusual in French records) is found as number 3231 in the bureau of Lille.  In 1900, he is recorded as born 21 Sep 1880, Linselles, resident also Linselles, son of the late Jean Baptiste Joseph and of Flore Louise Frenoi (resident Linselles).

However a note is made that as of 20 Jan 1907, he was resident Pérenchies. By April of the same year, at "Duck Luke" (Duck Lake?), Saskatchewan, and the last date on the list, August 1907, has him in Mass (presumably US).

Marie Eugenie Marescaux was born Pérenchies 20 September 1906  (she is acte 101, image 64 in PERENCHIES N / [1905-1909]  )
Jean Louis Marescaux and Marie DeCock married there 14 April 1906 (acte 9, image 63 in PERENCHIES M / [1904-1910] ). 

Marie was born in Belgium but her father died in Pérenchies and her mother was resident there (according to the marriage act), also two of her brothers witnessed the marriage, so it would appear the entire family had moved over. Witnesses on Jean's side were his brother in law and a friend.

Let me know if you need help navigating the archives; once you know the system there is a lot of information available in French records.

Thank you so very much Jorose. treasure trove. I will attempt to maneuver the records. I hope that they are bilingual records.
And a shout out to everyone else that has helped so far.
