Hello everyone. I'm hitting a serious dead end trying to trace my roots beyond my Great Grandfather, Joseph Aime Gauthier Sr. I'm hoping someone may be able to give me advice on where to look next. I've just begun my research so I'm not very experienced. Here is what I know for sure:
My grandfather: Joseph Aime Gauthier B: Oct. 18 1922 Mass., D: July 18 1989 Ipswich, Mass.
Great grandfather: Joseph Aime Gauthier Sr.
B: Jan 1, 1874 or 1876 in Canada, D: Jan 6, 1946 in Massachusetts
Lived in Salem, MA with 1st wife: Eugeney(ie)?. Children: Louis, Arthur, Leo
Lived in Ipswich, MA with 2nd wife: Marion Doiron B: June 9, 1884 D: Sept. 19, 1946Children: Alex, Omer, Joseph Edward, Joseph Aime
Here is where the information gets a bit fuzzy:
Joseph Aime Sr. had a brother named Thomas Gokey, born in Canada and came to Haverstraw, NY. He also had a sister named Rose Gauthier or Gokey (married name Label or Labelle) born in Canada and died in Winooski, VT. I was able to find a death record for a Rose Labelle listing her father as "Malguire Gokey", possible match for Magloire Gauthier I guess.
Great great grandfather: Magloire Gauthier, he was born and he died in Canada. I believe my father said he was from St. Francois, PQ.
Any suggestions for other resources would be greatly appreciated. I know there are multiple genealogy sites out there, but perhaps some of you more experienced researchers could recommmend one or give me some other tips.
