According to Stephen White, Dictionnaire Genealogique des Familles Acadiennes, published 1999, there isn't a specific birth year that can be attributed to Germain. It is unknown where the early genealogical researchers came up with the year of 1595. Presuming that they had some basis for their statements, it is proper to either not include a birth year or use "about 1595" rather than a specific year.
Again, according to Stephen White, Germain was born at Couperans en Brie or Conflans en Brye. Researcher/Genealogist F. René; Perron, of Sèvres, France, states that La Verdure, the fiefdom of Germain, is located in Champagne Brie, ten kilometers north of La Ferte-Gaucher. La Ferte-Gaucher is located about 45 miles east of Paris in Seine-et-Marne Department.
According to Stephen White, the name of the wife or wives of Germain has never been known. Several early writers, such as Bona Arsenault, Histoire et Genealogie des Acadiens, and Adrien Bergeron, Le Grand Arrangement des Acadiens au Quebec, have stated that the wife was Marie Bourgeios, given the documented fact that Germain Doucet and Jacques (Jacob) Bourgeois were brothers-in-law. In his notes, Stephen White states: "It is not possible that the mother of the children of Germain Doucet is a sister of Jacques Bourgeois' wife, as certain authors have proposed, being given that the in-laws of Jacques Bourgeois didn't get married until 1627. There exists the possibility that Germain Doucet nevertheless married, in second nuptials, to a daughter of Guillaume Trahan who gave him no surviving children; but it is as possible that such a second wife is the sister of Jacques Bourgeois and not the sister of his wife. (See SGCF Vol VI, p 372.)
Germain married Marie Bourgeois. (Marie Bourgeois was born in 1599 in Champagne, Dordogne, Aquitaine, France 133 and died in 1654 in Loudun, Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France 133.)
