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?
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.
