    Hi Mark,

    May you tell me that soldier's name? Maybe I could find something on my side.

    I will send you a private message with the files I told you.

    Regards.

      Hi Pascal,

      His name was John William Reading b.1876. I found a Jeanne Sophie Joly on Genealogie, but think some information was redacted on the naissance (Challes-les-Eaux, archives de la Savoir 1875-1890). I can't post the images, but there was nothing written in the margin that I could see.

          Hello Jeanne,

          Yes, I am still available to help you. My purpose is more to teach you how to find records than to find them for you, except first ones of course.

            This is wonderful news. I am trying to find more information on my ancestor who immigrated to Louisiana in the US sometime between 1715 and 1724. He was born in St Omer in 1679 and I am guessing that he came over here with the John Law concessions. However he is not on any of the ship's passenger lists. Do you know where I can find embarcation records in France? The first record I can find for him is a census report from the German Coast in Louisiana which lists his age and where he is from. He either left from Calais or L'orient. Any assistance from here would be great.

            Thank you,

              Hi Jeanne,

              I don't think I can help you much, as the kind of information you search for is not online here in France. The only place I know where you could find passengers lists is National Archives in Paris, but you must go there. Maybe at French Navy Archives too. If you tell me the name of your ancestor, I will ask them about.

              If your ancestor is Jacques Lachapelle dit Poche, I got something about him on the website I subscribe to...

              Kind regards.

              Pascal

                You are very good. Yes that is the one I am currently researching. There is a lot of mis-information on-line about him and I would love something legit. I will give you my personal email if you prefer: (email address removed)

                Thank you again,

                  Sorry Jeanne, we do not allow email addresses to be pubished on the forum. It would be better for you to send Pascal a private message and send your email address that way. Just click on his username to the left of his post and you will see a message option.

                    Hi Jeanne,

                    As I have not got a private message from you yet, I reply here. Lachapelle was Jacques's family name and for any reason, he was called ("dit") Poche. He was born in Saint-Omer in about 1679 and died in 1747 aged 68 in Saint-Charles, Lafourch(e) parish, US Louisiana. He married Eliza Champion (no more information about her, but maybe another name to search in passengers lists if they came together from France). They got a son named François, born in Cannes Brûlées in 1730. If you have come upto Jacques, you probably know about all the rest.

                    I can't do anything for you about passengers lists, but here is the link to find his birth record : http://www.archivespasdecalais.fr/Archives-en-ligne (hoping you can read French).
                    Then click on [Etat civil] then on [Actes]. In [Lieu] (place), type "Omer", then choose first of 7 parishes, in [Année] (year), type "1679", and in [Recherche par type d'acte], click [Baptêmes]. That's won't be easy and only give you the name of his parents.

                      Wow this is fantastic! It will take me some time to go through but what a treasure. When I stop to think about it, it is amazing this documentation even exists! I have one more thing that I'd like to check with you. My french is so-so and I wanted to see if you are familiar with the website: famillesparisiennes.org I found a listing for the family Poche at about the right time and it has his name?? But I cant tell what this document was that they are listed in? Any information on this website would be helpful.

                      Thank you again for all you have done.

                        Hi Jeanne,

                        If you go through St-Omer parish acts, after you choose the parish you want and before to see the pictures, you can read how the register is organized, so you can more faster. Sometimes, BMS (S = sépulture = burial) are together, sometimes they are apart. Sometimes, priest wrote "B" and a family name. Remember that 1679 has been calculated from Jacques's age when he died. His birth can be upto 5 years more or less. Good luck! When you find the act, tell me the parish and page number and I will read it for you.

                        Paris records has been destroyed by fire in 1870, so acts before 1860 have been "reconstructed" from different sources, but is still far to be complete. famillesparisiennes.org project is to find information in more sources (they list them and you can translate by Google). It is a long-time work. Of course, there are some Poche, but only in Paris. As people didn't move much before the end of 19th century, I guess you have no ancestor there.

                          Thank you for all your help. I started to just look for 1679, but then I decided to look at every page as I want to find all information on any of the family members. So far I think I have reviewed over 1,200 pages. I am grateful for the pages which were written with a "lite hand" as they are easier to read and don't show through from the back of the page. I am amazed with every page I see that this information is still available and I am very grateful for you too! Thank you again for all your help!

                              Hi,

                              Yes, I am still there to help. I found that birth in 1912 births list, but records online stop in 1911. So I have to ask the city of Lourches. I will call them on Monday and I hope I can get a copy of that record by email within few days. Is it what you need?

                              To find marriage and children will be difficult online, as lists stop in 1932 (Theodore was 20-21) and he didn't marry in Lourches. Also, marriages usely take place in bride's home town. Or do you mean Theodore's parents wedding?

                              Pascal

                              Edward Gustavaguard or gustavagand
                              Marchand names
                              Edward and marie
                              Mari Jeanne.
                              josett
                              George
                              Andre & jeannette
                              Andre had daughter Sandrina and georgette can't remember other.

                              George had 2 sons John Francois and pascal or pascal
                              Edward and marie
                              I don't understand what you mean...

                                were trying to find out where Theodore was married and if he did marry at all.

                                And where our other family came from the Surname Marchand and Gustavaguard or Gustavagand were not sure how it is spelt that name as there related to my mums nana Jeanne Laude born Lourches.

                                  Jen,

                                  I would find very surprizing that Gustavaguard or gustavagand would exist as french names.

                                  I would suggest to split it into "Gustave" (which exist as a firstname) plus someting else (Like "Agarde" or "Agand" ??)

                                  Rgds,

                                  M.
