...another Germain + Gignac?

I am posting this message on behalf of a friend.Her ancestors are Louis Gignac (1837 - 1914) who married Ida Germain (1853 - 1902), possibly in the 1870s.That couple may have originated in the area of Champlain, but they eventually migrated to the area of Lafontaine and Penetanguishene, Ontario, where they raised their family, including a son Samuel (1885 - 1939).
Do your records possibly show this couple, or either of them?I suspect that "Ida" could be a shortened form of her given name.
I would also greatly appreciate your ascendance to the original Germain,.. or at least enough to link me in to Mgr Tanguay's work.
Thank you far any help you can provide.
