In the search and research of one’s ancestry and genealogy one never knows what one may stumble upon, nor how soon one can discover an ancestor’s vital records. I am searching the Huard family name to determine how many children CK’s gggg-grandmother Catherine (née Grenier) may have had while she was married to her first husband Romain Huard. I have found that Ancestry.ca has uploaded just over 600 records with the surname Huard of Paspébiac from The Drouin Collection. My search involved going through each one for the period from 1859 to about 1866.

I am continuing to search for ancestors. I have turned up two more pieces of evidence and I am currently reviewing the registrations. Stay tuned.
