Thanks for the info. I have seen that census record but could never varify it was what I was looking for. I do have a record from MA on Victor's marriage to Mary which gives his parents names and the fact they were from Canada. His obituary says he was a native of Bolton, Ontario Canada. Whether this is accurate I don't know. That census record is the only early record I found with his name. I do have a picture of his tombstone and his wife's as well. At one point I found something with his name being Victor Albert Poulin but I haven't been able to find this again. How funny that your son's name is the same as my grandfathers. Unfortunately he died in 1969 way before I ever thought of doing this research. My father is the last child living from this line. He was the youngest in the family and he just turned 80. There are cousins of course but of everyone I could find and contact no one knew anything about this family. Victor & Mary were both deceased before my father was born; she in 1909 and he in 1927. Anyway, thanks again for all your help. I'll keep on hunting and hopefully I'll find the people I'm looking for.
