In Reply to: looking for records on Joseph Moreau b.3-20-1768 by James Moreau of 1134

Dear James,
I have some sources on and a direct hit on RootsWeb. Both are genealogy sites. RootsWeb is free. Ancestry requires a subscription, but most public libraries in the US have it where patrons can search it for free and print out what they find for ten cents, at our libraries.


Here is the direct hit.

• : I03453
• Name: Joseph MOREAU
• Sex: M
• Birth: 20 MAR 1768 in Berthier En Haut, Quebec, Canada
Marriage 1 Marie Brigitte PELOQUIN b: ABT 1766 in St-Ours, Richelieu, Quebec
•       Married: 12 JAN 1795 in St-Pierre-de-Sorel, Richelieu, Quebec
•       Children
1.        Brigette MOREAU b: 01 JUL 1799 in Sorel, Quebec, Canada
2.        Joseph MOREAU b: 13 JUL 1797 in Sorel, Quebec, Canada
3.        Marguerite MOREAU b: ABT 1802 in Quebec, Canada

Here is a good source for marriage records. It will have the one for Joseph and Brigitte.

Joseph Moreau
SPOUSE:        Brigitte Peloquain
MARRIAGE:        year - city, Québec (Quebec)
Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection) 1621-1967

Web Address below

I don't have a home subscription to Ancestry, so I couldn't get the date and city, but this book is probably in a lot of libraries.

Here is a web page with many family trees with a Joseph Moreau b 1768 married to Brigitte. I'll put one here along with the address of the page. This is also from Ancestry. This person has Joseph's parents names on this tree.

       Joseph Moreau
BIRTH:        dd mm 1768 - Québec (Quebec), Canada

MARRIAGE:        date - city, Québec (Quebec), Canada

PARENTS:        name surname, name surname

SPOUSE:        Brigitte surname

I hope these are helpful.
