dubious ancestors on this lady, need some input from France on it [closed]

+6 votes
Marthe Noire dite Noël and her husband have known children, no problem there, Fichier origine linked on her profile for one of them.  

However, she is currently set with parents and grandparents which I adopted one of. François ''Ancetre'' Noel.  

Need some assistance to figure out if there is even a chance of records, before I disconnect them.  Thanks.

Thanks, Danielle, for bringing up Marthe - she's been on the France "to-do list" as due for a cleanup for a while.

As it turns out, there is an excellent chance of records. Not for Marthe's real parents (at the time she was born her baptism should have been recorded, but in practice few pre-1600 parish registers survive), but for François "Ancêtre" Noël and Angélique Guezet. According to a myriad Geneanet trees, François Noël and Angélique Guézet were married at Cancale in 1785 (more than 200 years after Marthe's estimated birth) and their marriage record is available. You can even see a scan here

Needless to say, this rules out them being Marthe's parents. At least, they existed. The parents attributed to Angélique Guézet on WikiTree are the same as the parents of 18th century Angélique Guézet in Cancale, which seals the case of time travel.

You can disconnect, I think.

Edited for clarity.
