In episode #13, we delved into the components of a French-Canadian baptism record. Today, we dissect a marriage record, the backbone of our reconstructed ancestral families. Lengthier than either a baptism or burial record, the marriage record contains more variation and complexity.
So in this episode you’ll learn common, as well as not so common, phrases. You’ll receive strategies for deciphering your own marriage records, and you’ll have the opportunity to quiz yourself at the end to see if you’re ready to tackle the job of gathering the important information about your ancestors.
