Removing a Filles du Roi Francoise Asselin as mother of Jacques Pilet?

+4 votes
Hello! I do not believe that Pilet-20 is the son of Asselin-74 and  Valade-7. The different last name is the first clue; and in Denissen (pg 981) Jacques Pilet (1673) is listed as the first generation in North America. On WikiTree, he is noted to have been born in 1673 France; this is after Francoise Asselin and Guillaume Valade had met/married in 1669 in Charlesbourg, Quebec. They did appear to have a son named Jacques born in 1673; this Jacques Valade is listed as having no children on nosorigines. The profile will not let me remove Francoise Asselin as the mother of Jacques Pilet, however. I'm new at this -- can someone on the Filles du Roi project help out? Thank you so much!!

Hello Anna!

You could not remove Françoise Asselin as mother of Jacques Pilet, because Françoise's profile is project-protected, meaning that to add or remove a parent, spouse or child to the profile, you must be a manager of the profile, or a project coordinator or project leader.

Normally such disconnections need to be discussed by the community, but, in this case, I see that the profile for Jacques Pilet was added as child without discussion or collaboration and without adding sources (this was done when project protection only blocked the change of parents. It would no longer be possible now) and the connection makes no sense as the names are completely different. So, I went ahead and disconnected the profile.

If new sources are discovered and it turns out that Jacques Pilet was really Françoise's son, he can be added back.

Thanks Isabelle, Jacques Pilet even has a DOB, based on François Marchi's site, which cites an e-mail from somebody as its source for it.  Sigh.
Thank you both so much for the feedback!!

Greetings Anna Kurtz .. Interesting question. Direct evidence is certainly lacking. There are numerous gedcom references and none that I reviewed had supporting sources.  

The profile is a part of the Filles du Roi Project team and as such enlists team help to manage its information. They are a super helpful team. You can send your excellent question to them by email.

Listing your question on g2g is a good idea and  I'm sure a leader of that project team will respond and help. 

Here is more information about the team.

C'est Bon ..

no need to send by e-mail Gerry, in fact it's better by G2G question.
