How accurate are French Canadian immigration records?
In August, Nathan W. Murphy, wrote a blog on the FamilySearch website, where he wondered out loud about how accurate French Canadian record are – especially French Canadian immigration records.
As he reviewed his French Canadian ancestry at FamilySearch, he realized that “some of my ancestors are literally in the database 100s of times”!
To get around this problem, he used Ficher Origine, which he explains in his blog posting. You put in the name you are researching, and there you will see the latest up-to-date information on your immigrant ancestor. It should help you sort out your ancestors, one from the other.
So give it a try.
