I'm trying to determine the correct parents of Francis Demers (also seen as Francois). I'm hoping to get help maybe through baptism or marriage records.  I should add that there seems to be a toss up between 2 possibilities: Jean Baptiste who married an Emelie Cote or a Jean Baptiste who married a Henretta (I have a banne record of this one).  So far all the records I have found have a Henretta with a Jean Evangelist. Can't find any census records with the right grouping.

He may have been born in 1860 in Quebec (St. Michel).
Buried: 09 Aug 1937 • Elk Lake, Timiskaming, Ontario, Canada

daughers: Donalda (my grandmother, married Alfred Quesnel), Pamelia (married Sobol), Fortuna, and Cordelia (married Plourde),
son: Joseph

Here is some info - http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/DEMERS/2001-11/1005844416

and http://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/lalonde/1289/  see if church records exist, if they were Catholic usually the parents are listed.
Thank you James, I've seen those posts and was in touch with Bonny back in the early 2000's. As far as I know, she was not able to confirm the information and was seeking information. She is no longer reachable.

Appreciate your help though. P.
Did you look at the replies on here?  http://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/lalonde/1289/  The first one gives the marriage info: parents, date and place. Again see if the church records are published or available on-line or film through your local Family History Center and then follow the records back and forth for baptisms and burials.  It is all basic genealogy research.  If F-C research is new to you I strongly advise you to read some "how to" F-C genealogy books, such as:

1) RESEARCHER’S GUIDE TO AMERICAN GENEALOGY by Val Greenwood, to learn the fundamentals, terminology and basic references common to all researchers.  (Even though not French-Canadian this book covers the essentials of research no matter what, where, when or whom. It is sometimes referred to as the genealogist's bible)

2) THE CANADIAN GENEALOGICAL HANDBOOK by Eric Jonasson

3) TRACING YOUR CANADIAN ROOTS by Angus Baxter

4) GENEALOGICAL READER: NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES AND CANADA, by N.E. Wright

5) TRACING YOUR ANCESTORS IN CANADA by P. Kennedy, J.M. LeBlanc & J. Roy

6) A CANADIAN DIRECTORY FOR GENEALOGISTS, by Louise St. Denis

7) LINKS TO YOUR CANADIAN PAST: v.1-Acadia & the Maritimes; v.2 Quebec; v.3 Ontario &   Western Provinces

8) FRENCH-CANADIAN GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH by John DuLong

9) SEARCHING IN FRENCH-CANADIAN RECORDS by Anita & John Coderre

10) FINDING YOUR FRENCH-CANADIAN ANCESTORS by Louise St-Denis

11) BEGINNING FRANCO-AMERICAN GENEALOGY by Rev. Dennis M. Boudreau

Thanks so much Rosemary. I have updated my post to add additional information which I should probably have included the 1st time.

Pretty positive that this is the wrong Francis. I do appreciate your help.
That's fine. I know diddly squat about Canadian records & this is what popped up in FamilySearch.

If you still need this information on Demers and Lalonde go to google search "nosorigines.qc.ca. This is the best site ever. Parents of Francis Demers are Jean-Baptiste Demers and Emilie Cote.  Parents of Clementine Lalonde are Joseph Lalonde and Marguerite Liboiron.
