Tuesday Treasure | May 26, 2009

This is a copy of the marriage record for my 2nd great grandparents, Joseph Voiland and Felicitée Marie (Sadie) Romond. They were married on March 26, 1857 in Essert, Belfort, France. Shortly thereafter, they emigrated to America.

It was photocopied for me at the Archives Departementales Du Territoire De Belfort by a RAOGK volunteer.

I’d like to know what the entire record says. I’m not sure if it’s written in French or Latin. If anyone out there can help, please let me know!

    • Thanks, Judith. That banner picture was taken at Cato Heights Cemetery in Cato, Wisconsin. My 2nd great grandfather’s property surrounded the cemetery back in the mid to late 1800’s. That’s me and my son standing on a hay bale looking over the land that was once his farm!

  3. My daughter is a French major; she said the marriage certificate was definitely written in French. She tried to take a stab at the translation; however, she had difficulty with the old-style handwriting.

    I am also researching Roman/Williams line. Thanks for such an interesting site!
