Basic hints on how to differentiate a source which you should consider uncertain. This crucial information is unfortunately hidden in the "Uncertain" help page.
This is the baptism act of my earliest known ancestor, Jehan Dagincourt, on 21 May 1584.
I was born and raised in a small village ouside the suburbs of Paris, France. My father is from the same village; his mother was Swiss-born. My mother on the other hand, is a true Fleming from Lille, with lots of Belgian ancestors.
I work full time as a computer programmer. Favorite hobbies are genealogy, cross-stitching and reading. I also look forward to having more time to travel, in the future.
My family tree was started more than 30 years ago with data from my great-grandparents "livret de famille" - the small booklet the mayor gives you when you get married, which is an official document. I thought my great-great-grandma had an interesting name and that's how I caught the bug.
In spite of my extensive Belgian ancestry (overwhelmingly Flemish), I can't speak Dutch. I read just enough of it to read civil registration records, though.
Below are a few Notables I connected to the main tree. They are only the result of my connecting efforts; I am not related to any of them.

Pourriez-vous regarder Marion Boudin à nouveau et me dire ce que vous pensez de la dernière section que j'ai mise? Pierre Boudin et son épouse ont une fille nommée Marion, mais les remarques du fichier ne spécifient pas si ce sont effectivement ses parents. J'ai déjà envoyé un courriel au Fichier pour leur demander plus de détails. Merci.

Thank you as well for the help, I have also send Jacqueline (she is Leading the Acadian Project) a message to let her know what was going on and included a link to the G2G that started this, (added the missing Acadian project tag to the G2G as well).
So with some luck it will be solved soon :)
