My gg. grandparents Ed'd BOURKE Sr. and Maria McCONNELL were marr. Feb. 20, 1844 at St. James Anglican, Hull, PQ "by authority of special license issued by the Dept. of the Provincial Treasurer under the hand and seal of the Lieutenant Governor". Is there some way I can find out if there are records available for these special licenses? I'm desperately trying to find out who Ed'd BOURKE's parents were.

According to church records and The Pembroke Bulletin of June 20, 1938 my g. grandfather Jean-Baptiste DEMERS is buried in the "local Roman Catholic cemetery" in Pembroke. However, I cannot locate the graves of him or his wife Laura BOURGRAUD who died three days earlier. Can anyone shed a light on this problem?

After many years of researching the LETT family, we have made a connection with the LEETE family. We would like to correspond with anyone interested in these names. We have found some LETT family, 1830s baptism records, that were not recorded in the Diocese where the family lived. Later records are believed to have been lost in the 1922 fire in the Four Courts in Dublin.
