About Marie-Jeanne Oudin

Note about Place of Birth: Before April 2014, the value was "Saint-Méry, Île-de-France, France". But was it accurate?

In 1641 (and still today), there were three parrishes/churches dedicated to Saint Mérédic in the (ancien French) province of Île-de-France:

- "Saint-Méry" at Saint Méry(48° 34′ 41″ N 2° 49′ 37″ E)

- "Saint-Merri (ou Saint-Merry) in Paris" (48° 51′ 32″ N 2° 21′ 04″ E)

- "Saint-Merry" in Linas (48° 37′ 51″ N 2° 16′ 14″ E).

Some genealogy websites specify "Seine et Marne", which is inconclusive. The department of Seine-et-Marne was created only in 1790, that is, 150 years after the birth of Marie. Therefore, this department could not have been mentioned in original records of the time.

The record of Marie's marriage with François Gariepy (see Sources) says: "Saint Marri à Paris". How much can we trust the writing of a cleric 3,000 miles away from Paris? Yet, at least, this is a contemporary record, which adds some weight.

Ultimately, to resolve the ambiguity, we need an original and official record of some sort from France.

If anyone has such a record, please post here.

In the meantime, we will use "Saint-Merri" in Paris until we have sources to the contrary. Being in Paris is more consistent with the pattern of immigration to Nouvelle-France that the other alternatives.
