I've had a puzzle on my hand since my mother died in 1997, she was the youngest grand-child of a huge family and due to numerous FIRES records have been burned to ashes and no rebuilding seems to have be done for thos records.
I have a THOMAS DEROUIN/DROUIN, etc. which cannot be found with his wife MARGUERITE DESMARAIS, anywhere else but in the 1891 Census of unreadable city, Province of Quebec, with a lot of their children, missing my grand-father as he was born in 1894.
He was approximately 35 years old in 1891 would have married at least 1878 as his oldest child, a daughter was 18 in 1891.
Now, bottom line, I need to know his parents..... he would have been born around St-Janvier, Quebec about 24 OCT 1853 or 1856 approximately.
WITHOUT HIS PARENTS I CANNOT FINISH MY DROUIN/DEROUIN LINE, please someone help?
