I have begun doing searches for my paternal Grandfather's family. They are from Tignish Prince Edward Island.
In the 1911 census Peter P Poirier is married to Mary Poirier. They have 8 children listed, Cathrene Jan 1885, Rosy Nov 1891, Joseph Mar 1893, Seline Oct 1894, Edmon Jun 1897, Magey Ann May 1900, Heanry Oct 1901, and John (my Grand Father) Nov 1904.
They are also listed in the 1901 census as living with my Great Grandfather Louis Richard (Mary's father). He was widowed at the time of the census.
I am interested in finding Louis' wife's name, and if there is any information into the history of the family at all? Where they lived, originated etc? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I am planning a trip to visit the area for the first time in July 2011.
