Thank you for this information. I am a beginner in French genealogy and I don't speak French. (I use Google Translate as a help!) So trying to read the original records is a challenge. I'm researching the family connection to Cuba and am much more capable with the Spanish, but original records are nearly impossible to access in Cuba.
Although you gave me more credit than I deserve, I appreciate your explanations. It helps a beginner like me learn more and open new doors to explore. I am in awe of what you know and your ability to find information!
