Good News…

Sometimes it takes a little while, but…

Another 3rd cousin just wrote yesterday.

I knew he was going to write me because his brother Carl told me his older brother had a lot of info on his Archambeault ancestors.

I won’t put all Frank wrote, just the bare essentials…

Pierre,

I am Carl Archambeault’s older brother, Frank. 

First, I want to tell you that I greatly appreciate the provided links to photos of my ancestors — you have no idea how much viewing previously unseen photos (e.g., William and Myra with baby Raymond) of my grandparents means to me. 

What I am looking for, with cautious optimism, are old photographs (really, tin-types) of William’s father (Jean-Baptiste Archambeault) — and, pushing my luck here, Jean-Baptiste’s father, Joseph Archamb(e)ault as old man. 

I must say that I DO NOT expect you to put much, if any, time into looking for this information. Yet, if it is available to some of your contacts, I would be thrilled. 

Hope to hear from you,

Frank

I replied back, a few times, then I invited him on my family tree where all my information and pictures are stored.

I got this confirmation this morning.

Dear Pierre,

Good news – Frank Archambeault has accepted your invitation to join your family tree.

Good news indeed…

Frank is a direct descendant of this man… who is also my 8th grandfather.

Small world…

Of course I knew that Frank and I were related, but what I was missing… was the missing link.

Who were the parents of Jean-Baptiste Archambeault?

Jean-Baptiste Archambeault aka John Shambo

I could not find when Jean-Baptiste Archambeault married Émilie Mercier. Now, thanks to Frank, everyone will be able to say…

I want to tell you that I greatly appreciate the provided links to photos of my ancestors — you have no idea how much viewing previously unseen photos of my grandparents means to me. 

Now, as a footnote to all this…

Frank, how about what I had in store while I was waiting for you to get in touch?
