French Canadian Birth Record

Postby jcsm400 » 08 Mar 2006, 12:14

On the USA 1900, 1910, & 1920 censuses, relative list birth place as French Canada & born March 1890. Would that be "only" Quebec? Is there anyway to find this record?

Thanks,
jcsm :?

I believe this term refers to Canadians with a French heritage. They most likely are from Quebec, but could be from Nova Scotia, PEI or New Brunswick (known once as Acadia). I believe Quebec is most likely though. Here's a link for an explanation that might help.

If you gives us a name, maybe we can check further for you?

Hope this helps.

Hi Nuccia,

Thanks so much for the reply & site. Info very helpful.

The name is Rosa DiPierro (many variations) born March 1890 French Canada, daughter of Pietro DiPirro & Anna Maria Bufano (Bifano). They had a son born Dec 1883 Italy, so I believe they came to Canada between 1884 & 1890. They then moved to Chicago prior to 1900 census (can't read migration date on 1900, 1910, 1930). This is a line from Armento, Italy & can't find Pietro's naturalization record in Cook County, IL.

Hope this helps everyone.

Hi jcsm400,

I may have found the record you have been looking for but there a a few discrepancies. The date is off but that's not unusal. If it's your Rosa, she was born in Ontario..actually not far from where I live. This used to be known as York (a county/town of the City of Toronto), now we are the Greater Toronto Area. Regardless, its near here.

Have a look...

Ontario, Canada Births, 1869-1907 Recordinfo
about Rosa Maria Depierro Dipierro
Name: Rosa Maria Depierro Dipierro
Date of Birth: 9 Feb 1890
Gender: Female
Birth County: York
Father's Name: Pietis Dipierro
Mother's Name: Anna Maria Boparie
Roll Number: MS929_102

Could it be her?

Hi Again,

Instead of trying to trancribe the whole thing, you can email me at nuccia.salvati@gmail.com and I will email you the copy or perhaps someone with imageshack could link the document?

Its an interesting document. Rosa was delivered by a midwife. They lived at 216/2 Chestnut Street and her birth was registered on March 12, 1870.

Let me know what you'd like to do!!!

Hi Nuccia,

I can't believe you found this so fast and yes, it could really be her. Parents name except for spelling seem to match. Date of filing March 12, 1870 (1890?) could very easily = b. Mar 1890 on census record. Birth records for children born in the States also show midwife. Could "Boparie" be French pronunciation?

Is there any online immigration records available for Toronto?

Will email you, so you can send document.

Thanks sooooooooooooo much,

Joyce tells me that the census for this family is not her's so I will post her info for her. She has had trouble posting.She write's:

Nuccia,

Great information, but unfortunately wrong family. Possibly a cousin or nephew.

1900 Pierro, Pietro & family living Ward #19, rear 78 Ewing St. Pietro is 42 (Aug 1857)& Anna Maria is 40(Sep 1859), mother of 8, 6 living. Their children were Vito 1883, Rosa 1890, Mary 1894, Catarina 1896, Michael 1897, & Elizabeth 1899. My husband's grandmother, Maria Giuseppe DiPierro (Mary) was born @ this address. Her birth record shows them coming from Armento, Italy.

1910 I have but need to dig out to know what name listing was found under.

1920 DePero, Petro & family (Mike & Elizabeth), living 1519 Taylor St. Pietro is 62 and widower.

1930 census can't find him. According to his death certificate, he was living with his daughter Rose (b. 1890). She married a Pasquale Lombardi in Chicago. I found them on the 1920, but not 1930.

1910 & 1920 were very hard to find. They didn't come up on any of the spelling variations I tried nor by his first name. Finally figured out the ward # they should be in & then went page by page!

I don't have access to the images any more, but if you do find them, I would appreciate a second pair of eyes for the migration date. It's strange, but on the 1920 census, Rose Lombardi has 1884 as her migration year, 6 years before she was born. Thinking this is the year her parents migrated to Canada, since her brother, Vito, was born Dec. 1883 Italy.


Joyce, do you think the birth document is the correct one at least? I will try to locate the census records and post for you. This additional information helps.

By the way Joyce,

Did you view these on ancestry? Do you have a subscription or did you use a library?

Just curious.

Nuccia,

Thanks for posting this for me. Not sure what was going on before, but things are working fine now.

As for the birth record you sent, it sure seems to be the correct one, but Anna Maria's surname has me questioning it!

Nuccia,

You must be at site too. Yes, I had a subscription to Ancestry several years ago, but don't anymore.

Joyce,

I found Rose and Pasquale Lombardi 1930 census. Peter wasn't on it.

Info is:

Name: Pasquale Lombardi
Age: 44
Estimated birth year: abt 1886
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to head-of-house: Head
Spouse's Name: Rose Lombardi
Race: White
Home in 1930: Chicago, Cook, Illinois

Record Rose Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1890 Wife
View Record Andrew Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1911 Son
View Record Anna E Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1913 Daughter
View Record Beatrice Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1915 Daughter
View Record Evelyn Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1917 Daughter
View Record Elvira Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1919 Daughter
View Record Peter Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1920 Son
View Record Vincent Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1921 Son
View Record Catharine Lombardi Pasquale Lombardi,
Rose Lombardi Chicago, Cook, IL abt 1923 Daughter

They were living on S. Rasvine Ave(?). Rose has 1893 as her Immigration date on this census. On the 1920 census, she is naturalized by 1907 through her husband. I think the census taker meant to write 1894, not 1884...

Joyce,

Do you know there is also a family tree for Vincent Lombart listing Rose Di Pirro and Pasquale?

Nuccia,

Thanks for the 1930 info on Rose. Guess Pietro hadn't moved in yet or they just didn't include him.

Yes, I found the family tree and contacted. No relationship, just an X brother-in-law!

I'll see about digging out page numbers for the census records so you can find & view. I usually wrote down the ancestry page # and the actual #. Hope I did it with these.

Gratefully yours,
