I am having a difficult time putting together my Didier branch... I am sure my poor French language skills are not helping.
My grandfather: Joseph Achille Adolphe Marcel Didier (known as Marcel or Mar)was born 1916
his parents: Ernestine Seguin born Mar 1887 in Montreal
& J Adolphe Didier 1882 (I have the Seguin family back to Laurent Seguin from Guigny-en-Bray, Picardie, France born 1622)
Adolphe and Ernestine were married in 1915 in Montreal, Quebec,Canada.
J Adolphe's father was noted as "Peter Didier" from Montreal.
Marcel was a chef for many years, with the Royal York Hotel in Toronto... which was operated by Canadian Pacific Railways. I have often heard stories that he was the third generation Didier in the kitchen... Uncle Tony Didier was chef of the year in 1965 (Toronto). There was also an uncle Louis, I believe.
Marcel Didier's siblings include: Marguerite, Jacqueline, Joseph Adelard Paul (known as Paul) and Victor. Paul was an artist, who moved to California in 1952 with his family.
I would be pleased for any information to help me with this part of my family tree.
