On this day in 1851, my 3rd great grandfather Pierre Lanctot married Sophie Longtin in Quebec.  They would go on to have 8 children (one of whom is my 2nd great grandfather Joseph Zenophile Lanctot) and live happily ever after, or at least until Pierre’s death in 1898.

Pierre Lanctot and Sophie Longtin - marriage record
Gabriel Drouin comp., “Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967,” digital images, Ancestry.com (www.ancestry.com : downloaded 7 June 2013), entry for Pierre Lanctot and Sophie Longtin (18 Nov 1851), p. 24; Institut Généalogique Drouin, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to transcribe this document due to the poor quality (and the fact that some of the words are hidden by the margin), and therefore have also been unable to translate it.  Also, I don’t speak French.  Any takers?

In any case, here’s a big thank you to Pierre and Sophie.  Without you, I wouldn’t be here.
