Trying to piece together some information to track down Raymond Bourque's ancestors.
Here's what I currently have (keep in mind that none of this is truly verified):
born 28-Dec-1960, St-Laurent (Québec)
married Christiane <unknown>
Christopher Bourque (b. 1986)
Raymond's parents are:
Raymond BOURQUE + Edna <unknown>
His paternal grandparents are most probably:
Dollard BOURQUE (b. 1892-) + Suzanne LANDRY (b. in Old Town, Maine)
They were married 29-Sep-1913 in Westmorland County, New Brunswick. [src: Provincial Archives of New Brunswick - they show up as Dolor BOURQUE and Susie LANDRY]
Dollard shows up on the 1901 Canadian Census, as Delore BOURQUE, b. 23-Aug-1892. His parents (according to the same census) would be:
Maximilien BOURQUE + Olive <unknown>
Maximilien was born on 2-Jul-1849 according to the 1901 Census, and Olive on 4-Nov-1860.
On the 1881 Canadian Census (LDS website), I found Maximilien listed as Milien BOURQUE, married to a Judith <unknown>, who would undoubtedly be his first wife (some of the children from the 1st marriage show up on the 1901 Census, with a sizable age difference with their half-brothers/sisters).
This is as far as I was able to go. I also discovered that Raymond BOURQUE (the father) has a sister Laura who is an Acadian writer. She was born 10-Feb-1914 in Alexandrina, New Brunswick and had 7 children with Albénie Arsenault (1903-1985) whom she married in 1941.
Any help would be welcome.
