I've added both a link to the MFGS AND a link to AmazonSmile recommending MFGS as the benefactor. Hope it works.

I am seeking to purchase + replace several marriage repertoires: St Joseph and St Andre of Biddeford and St Ignatius and Holy Name of Sanford. Still available?

Does anyone know where I could find a picture / drawing of a "real" "authentic" Baillargeon family crest?

We do not have a Baillargeon crest. You might check for Baillargeon Family Reunions. Sorry.

Arthur, is Fr. Begin's family tree on-line? If so could you send me the link?

Norm Cote: is the files of your walkthru St. Peters Cemetery anywhere on the web? I only have seen a couple of pgs on the net. PS thanks for the Mt Hope charts!

Where would a Catholic have been buried that had no money (a Potter's Field).
If a grave is marked unknown, by the cemetery where did they bury them?
