Incorrect Sources

Hello Mike:

       All of us are concerned that the sources we cite are accurate, and we are all interested in getting to the truth of the matter concerning the correct ancestry of Jean and Pierre Dulignon.

       The source I cited is considered to be one of the more trustworthy sources. René Jetté, the author of the Dictionary cited, produced his book in collaboration with the Programme de Recherche en Démographie Historique at the University of Montreal. This research group currently maintains a website of their data.

       As managers of a scholarly website, they are very concerned that their information be accurate. As we all know, genealogists must have an open mind, and be prepared to change records when more compelling documentation presents itself.

       The PRDH encourages subscribers and others to contact them if entries are deemed to be incorrect. Based on their evaluation of the documentation provided by dissenting genealogists, they will alter their genealogical records if deemed necessary.

       Please find below a URL for the PRDH website:

       The data base is managed by Bertrand Desjardins at the University of Montreal. His e-mail address is provided below:

       I suggest you contact him with your findings and let him know, so that the records held by the PRDH can be changed.

       Also, we would all appreciate it if you could keep us posted on your correspondence with M. Desjardins and PRDH concerning this matter.

       Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. We look forward to your updates concerning same.

Yours sincerely,

Heather Devine
