Part 809p – Smith Groh Genealogy – 1839 Baptism – GGGG-Grandfather Timothée Parisé – Bonaventure, Quebec, Canada

03 December 2012

Good Day,

What is the difference between a sinner and a fisherman? In French, the accent… Pécheur = sinner; Pêcheur = fisherman.

A new lesson learned… When transcribing a document from an alternative language it is key, for the purpose of translation, that even the accents are correctly copied and placed. In genealogy it would make all the difference in the world, especially if two little accents make the difference between a sinner and a fisherman. GGGG-grandfather Timothée’s father, ggggg-grandfather Michel Parisé was most definitely a fisherman. I can only answer for his occupation. I can’t answer for ggggg-grandfather Michel’s character.

From The Drouin Collection I have discovered both copies of gggg-grandfather Timothée’s Baptism Registration. The Baptism is dated 1 September 1839. His birth is recorded as 19 July 1839. His parents were 5-times great-grandparents Michel and Marie Thérese (née Duguay) Parisé.

Here are the images from The Drouin Collection as downloaded from Ancestry.ca.









My attempt at the transcription appears to cover almost word for word from both Registers.

On the 1st of September, one thousand eight hundred and thirty nine, we the undersigned Priest and Curé, have conducted the Ceremonies of Baptism for Timothy, born July 19 last, of the legitimate marriage of Michel Parisé and Marie Thérese Duguay, fisherman, of Port Daniel . Godfather: Timothy Parisé; Godmother: Roslie Parisé, who could not sign.

Alain Priest.


It would appear that gggg-grandfather Timothée may have been named for his Godfather and Sponsor Timothée Parisé. An obvious question – Who was gggg-grandfather Timothée’s Godfather?

Enjoy,

Jim
