Profile of Susana Hubert dit Lacroix

Susana HUBERT dit LACROIX was my sixth great grandmother. She was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 9 August 1709. She was the daughter of Louis HUBERT dit LACROIX and Magdelene TR0TIER. She married Pierre REAUME on 20 January 1737 or 1738. The couple had one child, my fifth great grandmother, Marie Louise REAUME, born in 1749/50.

That’s it. That’s all I know about her. This is one of my ancestors that I clearly need to do more research in order to profile. She is included in this series because she fit the criteria that I used to choose the ancestors I would profile, namely that she is born on or near the date that this blog is published. How do I handle this? I have names. I have the computer. I will do some research at www.familysearch.org into her. I also have access to www.archives.com so I will try looking there for her. Another good source of information is www.ancestry.com, but I no longer have the subscription for that website. I will need to do some creative searching.

There is a Canadian archive website that I can search. It’s at this address: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/Pages/home.aspx. It’s not as easy to search here, as I will need to use finding aids to locate the microfilms that I will need and to get them through interlibrary loan. Yes, the Canadian archives will do interlibrary loans to a US library. the catch is that I will have to do the research at my local library. it beats driving to the archives in Ottawa, Canada, although that is also an option.

That said, there are some records that have been digitized and made available through this website. However, they do not really cover the time that Susana lived. My preferred method of research of a site like this one is to simply try looking up the surname of the subject of my investigation. You either get something or you don’t, but it’s important to try because record availability changes often. In this case, I got five hits. one mentions Susana’s father by name. the record is older than she is, but it is still valuable since it could hold information about her father. Therefore, I collect it and add it to the research gleaned for him. it’s a record of a sale to another person, something that involved L’hotel Dieu. I placed that record hit into my research journal along with the website and keywords that I searched. That will enable me to find the record again, should I need it.

Now something else I noticed while doing that – the surname Adhemar. Adhemar was a notarie, someone who would have been involved in the sale. I have some microfiche with some of his acts on them. This gives me the option to search that as well and see what I can learn. So the internet search gives me two options. I can request a reproduction of this record and I can see if I already have it. I’ll do the latter first. I’ll keep you posted.

About

I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
