Did You Know?Did you know...1840s - As American factories in New England offered good jobs, thousands of French Canadians emigrated to the United States. In the eyes of the Roman Catholic clergy, however, this emigration was equated with losing the faith, and strong efforts were made to keep French Canadians in Canada.

The marriage was annulled because Michel had another wife -- see http://www.geocities.com/weallcamefromsomewhere/Kebec/archambault_girls.html for details.

"Anne Archambault was married at Notre-Dame de Quebec on 27 July 1647 to Michel Chauvin with whom she had two children born at Montreal. While passing through France in 1650, Louis Prudhomme learned that Michel Chauvin's lawful wife was living in poverty at Sainte-Suzanne. On 8 October 1650, in the presence of Paul de Chomedey, according to the notes of the notary Jean de Saint-Pere, Chauvin admitted his mistake. And the bigamous bird was returned to France."
