July 23, 2009 - 1860 July Merle Marriage Registration From Bordeaux - Translation Attempt - Part 27

23 July 2009

Good morning.

I'm perplexed, which of course is not to difficult to do. At times when I sweep the floor... (now remember I'm a retired banker) is one supposed to find those little flat silver batteries on the floor? You know the ones in watches and cameras? I can't figure out where they are coming from as I don't where any watch. I don't know if they're put into dog toys, that are always ripped apart by the pack... and for the life of me every piece of technology we have in the house is still working. Anyone?

And so you can see that my mind might just be going with the transcription of the marriage registration for great-great-grandparents Jean Jacques Alfred and Catherine Cora (née Merle) July. And again thanks to Yann and Thierry, and now Dieter I have an almost complete transcription that I have attempted to translate. I also found an instructional guide online from the Immigrant Ancestors Project from Brigham Young University and with a Church of the LDS copyright.

My translation is a first attempt and it provides quite a bit of information on eight ancestors all stemming from my search for great-grandmother Marie Antoinette. My translation of the legalese used in 1860 is a bit hazy.

If you come across any differences or errors that I may have made please feel free to email or contact me.
283 (repeat)

July (Jean)
Merle (Catherine)

On July 27, 1860 at 10 am we were given, a true copy of an act of marriage which reads: In the year 1860, May 2 at 5 pm at the Civil Registry of the Court on the island of Gorée, Sénégal, serving as a town hall for civil registration of the said island, Robert Henry Court Clerk of Court fulfilling the duties of officer in the jurisdiction of the said island and especially in this last capacity the undersigned appeared before us: Jean Jacques Alfred July, employed merchant, resident of Gorée, born in Bordeaux (Gironde) the 1st of June, 1833, according to a birth certificate delivered to the Mayor of that place, 9 December, 1859, by Mr Faure, Deputy Mayor of the said place, which remains attached to the following, son of age, of Jean François July, painter and Catherine Rosalie Dubuc, his wife, all residing in Bordeaux at 4 Rue Doidy, consenting to the terms of an affidavit signed by Mr. Alexander Caboy and his colleagues Notaries in the said city of Bordeaux, including the date of 27 January past, including the original certificate, to which it remains attached And Miss Catherine Cora Merle, of no profession, residing in Bordeaux, born in that place, 2 November, 1836, according to a birth certificate deliverd from Bordeaux, 19 December 1859 Mr. Jeane Faune, Deputy Mayor who shall remain hereto attached, daughter of age, of Jean Baptiste Merle, locksmith domiciled in the aforesaid Bordeaux 52 rue Lafontaine, consenting to the terms of an affidavit signed by Mr. Robion and his colleagues Notaries in the said city of Bordeaux, including the date of 19 December past, including the original certificate, to which it remains attached and Mrs Jeannette Etiennette Castix deceased wife of the said Mr. Merle, on the other part.

This is enough to absorb in one posting.





Je suis perplexe, qui est évidemment difficile de ne pas faire. Parfois, quand je balayer le sol ... (rappelez-vous maintenant je suis un banquier retraité), est censé trouver un, ces petits plats d'argent des piles, sur le plancher? Vous savez ceux qui sont dans les montres et les caméras? Je ne peux pas savoir où ils sont en provenance, comme je ne suis pas d'où tout regarder. Je ne sais pas, s'ils sont mis en chien de jouets, qui sont toujours déchiré par la meute des chiens ... et pour la vie de moi, chaque pièce de la technologie, nous avons dans la maison, est encore fonctionnel. Quelqu'un?

Et ainsi vous pouvez voir que mon esprit, va fou, avec la transcription de l'acte de mariage pour les arrière-arrière-grands-parents de Jean Jacques Alfred et Catherine Cora (née Merle) July. Et encore merci à Yann et Thierry, et maintenant, Dieter, j'ai une transcription presque complet, que j'ai tenté de le traduire. J'ai aussi trouvé un guide pratique en ligne de l'Immigrant Ancestors Project, de l'Université Brigham Young, et avec un droit d'auteur de l'église de la LDS.

Ma traduction est une première tentative, et il offre pas mal d'informations sur les huit ancêtres, arrivant de ma recherche, pour arrière-grand-mère Marie-Antoinette. Ma traduction du jargon juridique, utilisé en 1860, est un peu floue.

Si vous trouvez toutes les différences, ou d'erreurs, que je mai ont fait, s'il vous plaît n'hésitez pas à l'email, ou contactez-moi.

Cela est suffisant pour absorber en une seule publication.
