Eddy started working on his genealogy in early 2010.
Eddy had a lot of pictures. He wrote this caption on this one…
Dad and brother and sister Giselle and Laurence
Lawrence is beside his father Honoré Dubois. Giselle is sitting on the right.
The picture is taken around 1926-1927. Lawrence, born in 1920, seems to be around 7 years-old.
Larry would died in the war.
Here’s another picture of Eddy’s father.
I did a little editing…
Honoré has a white shirt on and he is next to his father Adélard.
This picture is taken around 1912.
Honoré seems to be around 17 years old.
Honoré born on December 31, 1895, got married in 1917. He named is son Eddy after his father Adélard.
Dominique Adélard Dubois died in 1920 when he was 48 years-old.
Eddy never met his grandfather because he was born on February 22, 1922.
I know now that they have a lot to talk about. Honoré worked for the C.P.R.
He was a train conductor.
I always loved trains. I used to go to St-Clet with my mother and visit my grandparents in the early 1950s. I wonder if Honoré Dubois was our train conductor… because that’s where he got married in 1917!
