Thanks Bridget,

I didn't know religeous confirmation records were of any worth for parents.
Are those from PRDH? I've just realized I don't have and PRDH data on any of
my DAVID ancestors and I thought I had about all of them. I have Jacques,
Claude (my ancestor) and Guillaume as brothers who came to Quebec but their
parents didn't, am I correct?
