However, no sources are provided for each individual. Rather, a general list is provided, and will need to be researched to continue this line.

Talbot, Eloi Gerard. Recueil de Genealogies des comptes de Montmagny, L'Islet, and Bellchasse. (Microfiche from American French Genealogy Society Lending Library) This source contains marriages by surname and gender in a genealogical report format for the three counties listed.

Gerard, Frere Eloi. Recueil de Genealogies des comptes de Beauce, Dorchester, and Frontenac. (Microfiche from American French Genealogy Society Lending Library) This source contains marriages by surname and gender in a genealogical report format for the three counties listed.

www.genealogy.umontreal.ca (A subscription web site maintained by the University of Montreal) This site has linked Quebec family group sheets through 1799 and includes many vital statistics. One shortcoming is that for marriages from 1766 to 1799, unmarried children are not on the family group sheet. However, this type of information can be ferreted out by searching data on individuals - a time consuming process. My impression is that this website was the most accurate and complete source that I used.

The Drouin Microfiche Collection (Landry, Carbonneau, and Corriveau) from the AFGS Lending Library. This source contains Quebec marriage information by surname and gender in alphabetical order.

Based on images found from Quebec, the following questions (rough and piece-by-piece until properly translated):

1. Did Richard die in Maine?

2. Was he married twice, the second time at 75 (to a 76 year old woman)?

3. Did Richard and his second wife die the same day?

3. Did he have 16 children by his first wife, 5 of whom were still living in 1967?

4. He was 98 when he died.

Was there a Richard Lessard Jr. (b. 23 Mar 1878 in Waterville Maine) who registered for WWI?
