Riddle (of a genealogical nature)

R

 

Charles Pierre Pare and Marie Josephe Lessart marry and have…22 children; several born in the same year, only a few months apart. How is this possible?

Answer:

It’s not. Two brothers, Charles and Pierre Pare, marry on the same day, two sisters, Marie and Marie Josephe Lessart. Between them the 22 children are divided: Charles and Marie have 14, Pierre and Marie Josephe have 8.

 

Moral: Due diligence and proper research in primary sources a happy genealogist makes.

  1. I’m sure my Dad has some pet peeves. He spent 8 years doing our family, which resulted in 3 gigantic binders of information! I know that there were 1 or 2 misspellings which sent him off on fruitless tangents.
