Ste-Marie-de-Beauce vs St-Joseph-De-Beauce, Nouvelle-France

+5 votes
I have a fellow named Jean-Baptiste Vachon (Vachon-436) for whom I found his baptism record under the Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce parish records collection in the Fond Drouin.  Looking through the Nouvelle-France category I couldn't find any category so digging a little deeper it seems that this record may actually be originating from Sainte-Marie-de-Beauce but was regroupped with the Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce when they were copied in 1941.  Can anyone confirm that I should indeed be using the Sainte-Marie-de-Beauce for the birth location and category or whether we are simply missing a Saint-Joseph-de-Beauce category?  Thanks!

Right David, church registries for St-Joseph in Beauce start in 1738.  A new category is now available.

So for Vachon-436, can you confirm if I should be using the new category for St-Joseph-de-Beauce or was it really all along Sainte-Marie-de-Beauce?
The church record is for St-Joseph and you wrote the birth place as St-Joseph.... yes... it should go in that new category.
I updated the record with the newly created tag but the link shows up red, missing an associated wiki page?
You had an error in the category link.  I corrected it and is now ok.

You have tagged the question correctly, so I hope that someone from the Quebecois project will answer.

Are you related to Jean Baptiste? I am first cousin, five times removed.
