No children?

What does "None of their children married in this region" mean?

For the time being, Your Folks links together marriages belonging to the same family only if they were celebrated in the same region. Those "regional" family records will be merged into a single family record in the next few months.

So, there can be, for the time being, more than one family record for the same family. For example:

  • If Joseph Gagnon and Marie Tremblay married in the Eastern Townships, as well as 2 of their children
  • And if 3 other children married in Montreal
  • We have 2 family records:
    • One for Joseph and Marie's marriage, together with marriages of their 2 children married in the Eastern Townships;
    • Another one, still with the names of Joseph and Marie, but this time with their 3 children who married in Montreal; in this family record, Joseph and Marie's marriage date is an approximation and the place is left undetermined.

How to find the other children?

A new search for the parents (Joseph and Marie in our case) should help find other family records for the same couple.

Here are some tricks to identify them:

  • The spouses' names and surnames should be similar
  • There should not normally be more than one family record with an exact date and place
  • Years help ignore family records that cannot be for the same family (ex. an XVIIth century record and one in the XXth century cannot describe the same family).
