In Reply to: Bay City, 1879, St. Joseph's Church by Janet Olsen of 860

St Joseph's church served mainly the French (Canadian) culture of Bay City. French names were "anglicized" and the spellings were of such variation that some families are hard to find. If you have not already tried to do so, St Jos. will look up the info for a $10 research fee, but there is no guarantee they will find your information. The records at the Clerk's office should contain the parents' names. There are some Polk directories online through that might help you.
