I am searching for information about Benjamen PARENT m. 18 Feb 1822 to Angele St. Laurent in Rimouski. His mother was supposedly Claire PARENT, who had Benjamen out of wedlock. Benjamen had a son by the name of Louis, who married Caroline Gagnon, from whom I am descended. There are stories in the family that we are not descended from this branch of PARENTS who are descended from Andre Parent in the 1600s, but from another branch who came to Quebec in the late 1800s.
If anyone knows who I can contact about this, as I have hit a roadblock. I know the church in Ste-Luce-sur-mer is now a museum and I am not sure where to write for copies of birth/marriage/death records.
Also, if you know of anyone with the last name PARENT please pass this on to them?
