Thank you for the advice, Kathleen! Would you know if these records are available on-line? I continue to search for the birthplace of my ggrandparents and gggrandparents. All of my records up to this point only say "Canada". Canada's a pretty big place!
At the moment, I am searching for an Albert Beauvais (Bova) born in Canada and at the time of the New York State Census of 1875 was living in Malone, NY with wife Rola (Aurelie Lamitie) and several children. One of the children was my ggrandfather, Austin (Augustin) Beauvais (Bova) who was 16 at the time of the census. I am also searching for my ggrandmother, Alphonsine (either Gagnier, or Gregoire).
Thanks again for your help!
