Carignan Family Genealogy Forum
I am trying to find my g-g-grandfather, XAVIER CARRIGAN. His wife's name was "DELPHINE". They had a daughter "VALERIE" who married my g-grandfather NORRIS PERREAULT. Very difficult to trace even with the marriage certificate for VALERIE CARRIGAN (1/1/1885, Springfield, MA)
I believe the custom of calling children by their middle names as well as the "dit" are creating havoc with my research.
Any information on these names or any insight into how I may further my search would be greatly appreciated.
