Genevieve Gaudoin Born 1745 in Calais France
« on: Sunday 17 July 16 15:02 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for the baptism record of Genevieve Gaudoin, who was born in Calais 21 December 1745 (from her 1806 will), and hopefully also her siblings baptisms and her parents (Jaques Gaudoin and Mary Elizabeth Prevot) marriage.

Unfortunately my French is so poor  >:( that I can't navigate my way around the many regional sites where French documents can be accessed, so I'd be grateful for any direct links to the relevant records.

Hi

I looked at the books beginning in 1741 and found something interesting for my own research:
Death entries of soldiers of Swiss companies and Swiss regiments in service for France.

I will look for more such death entries and also for the baptism you are searching.

Thanks again. I also have a thread on Genevieve's will in the handwriting thread, which should probably be merged with this one now that it's going a bit off topic and discussing French records: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=752324.new#new

Hi

I have just found on page 472 of the churchbook Calais 1741-1764

Godouin: 23rd December 1745 baptisme of a child born at the same day
daughter of Jacques Gaudoin et Magdelaine Geneviève Prevot
The child was named Anne Geneviève Hypolite
Godfather: Pierre Hypolite Prondin/Prandin son
Godmother: Anne Claudine Poulain

You are a genius Svenja; thank you so much.

I've been looking again at a couple of the other links to Bourbon and Ste. Marie referred to in my other thread (Genevieve's brother Antoine Gaudoin and other members of the family are supposed to have been born in Bourbon and Antoine and his wife Marguerite Elizabeth Prevot were married in Ste. Marie in 1778) and have just had a brainwave. How does Ile Bourbon (now known as Reunion Island) and Sainte-Marie, Reunion, sound?

Hi

I would look first at all baptismes between 1741 and 1745 or later in Calais, because there are more with the name Gaudoin.

I have just found on page 469 of the same churchbook of Calais

19th December 1745: Baptisme of Magdeline Marguerite Gaudoin
daughter of Maturin Gaudoin, seaman and Marguerite Duimeux
Godfather: Alexis Charpantier
Godmother Marie Magdeleine Cordier de Presme

Thanks, I'll certainly do that. I'd expect there to be at least an Antoine, Marie Francoise and Marguerite
