Pitre-3429 and Pitre-1945 appear to represent the same person because: Jacques Pitre born 1764 was actually married twice according to genealogist Jean Bernard's Acadians of PEI books pages 3729 and 3730 . He married first to Marie Blanchard about 1787 and married secondly to Marie Savoie on 28 Nov 1837 in Miscouche. Jacques born 1764 did not have a son named Jacques so this profile should be merged with that of Pitre-1945 to fix this error.
Pitre-3429 and Pitre-1945 are not ready to be merged because: More research needed.
