Re: Bethancourt family - More Info?
In Response To: Bethancourt family ()
Could you give us more information? When would your grandfather have lived in St. John? Did you find him in any census records?
Do you know when your grandfather died?
While there, you can also search for other relatives' birth and death certificates. For example, you can check for the death certificate of Felicien's children. One or more of them may also list their mother's maiden name and place of birth.
St. John is under the NO Archdiocese. Unfortunately, their records are not yet published past the 1820's (they are still a work in progress). However, you can write to the Archdiocese for more information.
[Florestan, Florestal, Ovide and Clovis are not uncommon for the area.]
