I have been looking for a birth or baptism record to find out the parents of Joesph Desena Richard. I am new to this site but have used Ancestry.ca for most of my research. I seem to have hit a brick wall. This person moved to Saginaw Michigan in 1880. He was married in Michigan to an Olivine Lecompte dit LaFleur. I have found lots on her family lineage.
In one of his records that I have found, he uses the name Desena but mostly Joseph. It said he was born in Vaudreuil.
I also don't seem to be able to find any records for the 1861 or 1871 Census. If someone could point me in the right direction
that would be great.
