My resources are limited because I live in Oregon.I hope that you use this information only as a guide.I welcome corrections and additions from anyone that has access to the original files.
Originally I paid a genealogy society to trace the direct lines for 6 of my 8 great grandparents.They used the books that were compiled by volunteers for each parish.Because so many individuals had the same name, I eventually found some errors in these books.Then I used Tanguay and found out that he may be about 75% right and Jette (that goes to 1730) is about 90% right.Then just as I thought that I was finished, I found PRDH (University of Montreal) and I believe that they may be 98% right and still make corrections to their records.They go up to 1799 for marriage contracts and 1850 for some deaths.Some people have the luxury of having the original records at their disposal.I do not have that and with 17,000 individuals in my data base, I can not afford to pay for copies of all the originals.At that point I confirmed every that I had with the records at PRDH. Whenever I say “about” for a birth date it means that PRDH did not find it or if it is in the 1800s, I did not look it up because of my lack of resources.
PRDH uses the most common spelling variation for the names.This makes it easier to trace the families.They do not always use the original name that appears on the contracts or birth records.That is ok with me, because many individuals before the 1900s could not sign their names and did not even care how others spelt it.As a result the same person’s name took on a variety of spellings.I also kept the “dit” (aka) names because eventually brothers from the same family, picked a different aka name.
As for the pioneers, I also used Peter Gagné’s English books on the single girls that arrived in New France between 1634 & 1662 and his book on the single girls that are referred to as the King’s Daughters that arrived between 1663 & 1673.These girls were recruited and paid by the King to go to New France (Québec) to get married and colonize the area.
Most of my information for the 1800-1900s comes from people on the web.The program that I use does not allow for baptismal dates, so if I don’t have a birth date, I use the baptismal date.The same goes for death vs. burial dates and actual wedding vs. contract dates.The newer programs have these features, but I will not be going through 17,000 records to make the changes.
It is like I said in the beginning; use this information as a guide only.I view genealogy as a hobby and not as pure science.
As for the stories, I got them all in French on the web and I translated them for my grandchildren.I had not read or spoken French in over 40 years, so it was difficult and may not be the best translation.
