Richard is correct. My statement was not as precise as it could have
Jacques DAVID dit Pontife received the Sacrament of Confirmation
on April 11, 1662 at Chateau-Richer. He was married on Aug. 29,
1662 at Chateau-Richer to Marie GRANDRY.
Jette uses the following statements:
confirme ddmmyy - meaning religious confirmation on that date
au rec. 66 - meaning in the 1666 census (usually with a location)
cite ddmmyy place - meaning known to have been in that place
on that date (because there is some record showing it)
Sorry to confuse anyone.
