  1. I have been researching my family for a number of years and have found that there are many generations who lived in Cap St. Ignace, Montmagny, and l’Islet. I am planning to come there in July of this year and would like to visit gravesites of my ancestors. I do not know what the names of the cemeteries are if there is more than one per town. Can anyone give me a clue as to where to start looking. The names I am most interested in are Couiliard, Gaudet, Bernier, Dion. This would be in a time period from the late 1700s to 1850s.

    Thanks in advance for your help. Sincerely,
    Richard Gaudette
