Classification: Query
Surnames: Moran/Morrow/Morin, Thibodeau, Cadotte, Faucher, Bonnah
I went to the library in Algonac several times to look at newspapers on microfilm only to find so many missing editions I was unable to get obituaries for deaths as recent as 1957. One problem is the name is spelled so many different ways sometimes you aren't sure that is the name you are researching. I have seen the named spelled Moran, Morran, Morrow, Moreau and an array of names in between, so I wish it was that easy. Was it because they had a accent? because they couldn't read and write? So many variations for the same name, at first I too was skeptical I saw the name in one world tree as Moran Morrow and I thought this must be a mistake? But no it was not. Thank-you though maybe once the weather breaks I will make the trip to the library at Port Huron and try again.
