Research Notes

  • Looked for confirmation of birth/baptism for the 2 other children, Yvette and Gracia, nothing found in birth records, nor censuses. Used the Ancestry search functions and looked on FamilySearch but nothing so far. Also tried to look the the missing censuses (1911 and 1921), using each name of Joseph, Flavie, Pierre, Yvette and Gracia as search criteria; no success there neither. Research done as of 6 February 2021 AB
