Re: Seeking Marriage Info: BOMHOWER to LAZURE

In Reply to: Seeking Marriage Info: BOMHOWER to LAZURE by Sherry West of 1963

Bonjour Sherry:

The Bomhower surname has intrigued me to the point of doing some research in Québec.

Firstly, I wanted to find out if Bomhower was translation of a French-Canadian surname. Someone has suggested BONHEUR (Happiness).

Bohémier did not produce successful results.

Major Québec-wide marriage repertories and databases dit not reveal a marriage record for neither:

Ernest and Élisabeth and neither for the parents of Ernest or Élisabeth.

Surprising because the surname Rousseau, Lazure and Gervais are typical French-Canadian surnames.

I have found marriage records for a few Bomhower in Chateauguay area (SW of Montréal) but none related to Ernest. Also a few in Northern Ontario. No luck again.

Was Bomhower of german origin?

Would these people been Roman Catholic or did they belong to another faith?

Any more leads?
