Which line of Guerin are you?
An ancestor was a Guerin, and I am having a little problem with her descendents, Osite Aguillard-her son Dava & daughter in law - Patin. My line is;

Henriette Guerin married Joseph Aguillard in 1792 and I believe they produced Osite Aguillard who married George or Georgette Saizan
& produced Dava Saizan who married Zulma Patin
& produced Desiree Saizan who married Emile Pourciau
& produced Herminia Pourciau who married Emile Pourciau
& produced Tobie Pourciau who married Edna Mary Riggs
& produced Marie Pourciau my mother.
Marguerite Henriette Guerin was the daughter of Guillaume Guerin & Marie Anne Olivo.
ALL of this info came from the Diocese of Baton Rouge volumes "Catholic Church Records" which I will recommend to you, you will probably find just about all you need on Guerin from Pointe Coupee as they just about all Catholic.
Happy Hunting

Hi Julie
Do you live in Pointe Coupee? If so you should look up this family in the Catholic Church Records by Diocese of Baton Rouge. The Majors married into my family way back when, and I can find just about all I need in these 18 volumes.
The Majors of LA began with Etienne Bosseron dit Major, I am convinced.
If your local library doesnt have these books, the state library on Bluebonnet Dr in Baton Rouge has a huge gene section. It's very good.
happy hunting

Sherry, I have about 300 individuals with the Guerin surname in the Family Tree Maker database. My sister-in-law is Eve Guerin from Grosse Tete who married Pete Riviere from Livonia. My nephew Dale Bergeron is married to Suzanne Guerin of Livonia. If you live in the Livonia/Fordoche area you must know them. Please contact me if you need information.

Cynthia, read your posting on Bonaventure and am interested in sharing information with you. I also have info on Guerin, Jarreau, LeJeune, and Olinde.

Bonnie, I am interested in the Guerin surname but even more in the Bonaventure surname. I don't suppose you have researched Bonaventure? I have put together as much as I can from the Diocese of Baton Rouge Records and obituaries but I have some gaps with linking the branches together. It seems that Bonaventure's in Pointe Coupee come from Andre Bonaventure who settled there in the 1770's.
