I will be returning to La Rochelle next month. This is the place my ancestor left for "new France" Quebec in the 17th century. There are documents that tell much about the Trudeau (Truteau/Trutault) family during these times. I have been to Notre Dame on Rue Alcide d'Orbigny, which is said to be the church the family belonged to.
When we were there last time, it was a holiday and the church was locked. I am wondering if there are still services held here and how to get more information about this church and its history. So far I have learned it was originally build in 1077 then destroyed in 1568 during the religious upheaval. From what I understand, it was rebuilt in the mid 17th century.
I also read that the cemetery was removed (for a parking lot?) and remains moved to Saint Eloi cemetery in La Rochelle. How would I learn if there are marked graves from any of my ancestors?
Any information will be greatly appreciated!
