You could make some phone calls to the Public library in Quebec and ask them for suggestions and also ask them where you can view The Drouin Collection of the Quebec Vital and Church records (1621-1967)
I know you will need to make a time to see anyone connected with family history records. If you give us a name and approximate date maybe we can help you out perhaps set you on the right path. We might actually save you a trip.

You're welcome. It's rare to see a Pomaville out of the state of Michigan.

Go with Robert Brault's research Michael, he has more than 5,000 Brault/Pomaville's in his data base all sourced and validated. He may be emailed on [email protected]

Hello mmoran,
plenty of info (about 21 pages) on the message board where others are also looking for Pomaville

things like:

... "I think what happened is that in the 1860 Census, the ages of Susan and Maxim were switched. Susan, age 55 in 1850, would be age 65\66 in 1860. Maxim (Maxine), age 21 in 1850, would be age 31\32 in 1860. Joseph, Maxim's father, probably died before the 1860 Census and Maxim could have inherited the land, making him the head of the household.

Further evidence is in the 1870 Census (same area) Maxim Pumaville is now age 42, and is married to Mary, age 20. Also listed is son John, age 2 and daughter Angel, 10 months.

in the 1880 Census, Maxeime (Thank God for soundex) Pumaville is now age 53, Mary is 30, John is 12, Angelline is 10 and other children are: Henry, age 5, Mary, age 4 and David age 1.

I happen to be researching this family as well, as I descend from a possible brother of Maxim's, Joseph, Jr. So far I have found the following spellings for the surname: Pomainville, Pommanville, Pomanville, Pomaville, Pomerville, Pomavilla,
Pommaville, Pomneville, Pomarille, Pomaritle, Pominville, Pumerville, Pumaville, and Puminville" ...

good luck with your search
