i am a descendant of francois provencal who married marie-josette millier (also given or spelled as mellegeur, and as mellier). ...she is dau. of antoine millier and reine-marie chapdelaine of contrecoeur.
francois and marie-josette millier married at st-antoine-sur-richelieu on 22 oct, 1787.
so far so good. the problem is with the parents of francois provencal... they are given as etienne provencal and marie-josette lavigne. i am really stuck on these two. provencal is probably a "dit" name. lavigne is also probably a "dit" name.
does anyone know anything about etienne provencal who married marie-josette lavigne in the period 1740 to about 1770. i am assuming they are from the montreal area, but who knows for certain. if anyone has them or has an educated guess, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks, mike gorman of pownal, vermont
