Pitre, Lepitre & Lajambe Extractions




The Canadian marriages below come from six Drouin volumes (3 on husbands, 3 on wives), known as the Drouin Bleu series.  Tremendous thanks and much appreciation are extended to Denise Pitre of Canada for photocopying, scanning, and then emailing the pertinent pages to me. 


The volumes are in a type-written format.  The marriages were extracted from many original registers by the authors and publishers.  I have transcribed the marriages from the scanned pages exactly as I found them.  There were handwritten notes which I have also included, since I did not know when or by whom they were added.  Anything which appears in italics is my interpretation or correction, based on my files.  If the entire entry is in italics, the 'Pitre' is not an Acadian descendant.


Caveat:  Inaccuracies may have occurred:


Having now cautioned you, I will say that comparing the marriages to information I already had produced very few discrepancies.  Since Drouin is a finding aid, I have included only those marriages from registers which I have not yet viewed (most transcriptions on website).  The original register should be consulted whenever possible.
