This map shows the general area where the Mairat (Marah) and Cagnon families originated in France. It is now adjacent to the border between France and Switzerland. Also see other maps below.
NOTE FROM JOANNE:
The family of Donat MAIRAT (aka John MARAH) arrived in New Orleans in 1840. They were accompanied by members of his wife's family, the CORDIER & COMMENT families. In 1848, Donat's brother, Victor Leon MAIRAT, arrived with his wife, Marie Joseph Clotilde CAGNON, and their children. They also settled in the French Mining Community of Richwoods Twp., Washington Co., Missouri. All of the families have been found in the St. Stephen's Catholic Church Records. I have enjoyed learning about the French heritage of my ancestors and plan to make a trip to France in the next few years to visit the area they came from.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The following list of microfilms were viewed by me during the years of 2000-2001 in an attempt to trace my MARAH family ancestry. According to Victor Leon MAIRAT's 1848 French passport, the family came to New Orleans from Montursin, Doubs, France. The Montursin Civil Records soon led me to other affiliated families in many neighboring villages, including Damprichard. I ordered the records from the Family History Library in Eugene, Oregon and hundreds of records were spent transcribing French or Latin records into English and compiling this document. Many of the most pertinent records were also photocopied and then scanned in to provide digital documentation for family historians yet to come.

Great care was taken to ensure the accuracy of the transcribed information, but there are bound to be errors in translation and in my interpretation of the records. The condition of the ancient records was often very poor when they were originally microfilmed. My research does not contain ALL of the records that might be available on the microfilm. I would encourage everyone to view the microfilm for their own verification.

My approach to transcribing the records was to view the microfilm and to write down dates, names and other information that I thought might be pertinent to my research. If a record was known to be that of a direct ancestor, I photocopied it. After returning home from the library, I would type up my notes and translate any unknown words from the Latin or French into English. I also scanned in most of the photocopied records.

I found the French Civil and Parish Records to be an incredible treasure of genealogical information. The fact that women kept their maiden name for their entire lifespan proved to be a great asset in documenting family lines. Marriage records were an exceptionally rich source of information and often included the names of not only the betrothed, but the names of their parents and other family members.
