Here are some advanced features of searching database. First, make sure you are logged into your account. If you have any additional information on the marriage of a couple, such as the year, a range of years or the place of marriage, you can use the Advanced Search tab. Enter all the information that you have, for instance Guillaume Robitaille and Felicity Plamondon, who were married in 1835. Click on the year and place of marriage, or the name of the husband or of the wife for more information. You get a family file, which you can use as explained in the video "Simple Genealogical Research". Now, the Advanced Search option can also expand your search in different regions. The database is built by region, which means that the information contained on a sheet relates only to family events that occurred in the same region. To access events that occurred outside of the starting area, such as child marriage, here's how to proceed. First, return to the advanced search page. Enter the name of the couple, for instance Guillaume Tremblay and Marie Simard. Click on “Search Ancestors”. You get a marriage in 1829. By default, the system shows the short list of results. Click on “Full List”. You get a new result, so a marriage before 1876 in an undetermined place. Click on this new marriage. You will find that 2 children of Guillaume and Marie married in Hull. Since you do not see any information on the parents' marriage, it means that it took place in another region. You can click on “Find this marriage in another region” or return to the previous page, to access the first marriage in 1829. Click on it. No child of the couple was married in this region. So you have found that children of Guillaume and Marie have not married at the same place as their parents!
