Re: Nelson N.B
Thank you, Susan, but I did find that census on-line and scanned through all the pages to no avail!!
Would you happen to have the 1851 census for St. Barthelemi (I've seen different spellings) in Berthier in Quebec?It was not available on-line.There, I would be looking for Melina Sylvester/Mélétime Sylvestre (or similar), who would be about21 years old.She could be married to Ludger Lamy, or perhaps not yet.
In addition, if you happen to have the 1851 census for St. Simon, St. Hyacinthe (county) Quebec, there I am looking for Angeline Merriam/Mérién/(or similar), who woud be somewhere between 6 and 9 y.o. or so, with parents Pierre and Angeline.
Thank you for your offer, even if you can't help with Quebec.I am finding these ancestors of my husband to be very tricky with all the changing names and towns that don't necessarily exist and such!
