This is no horror story…
In fact I don’t like watching horror movies.
“Sweet Alice” reminded of something so I checked on the Internet just to be sure.
You find a lot of things on the Internet… like my blog on genealogy.
By the way, if you are Tammy Middleton, I know you have been searching also for your children’s roots just like Sweet Alyce did.
Alyce has won the jackpot and she won big.
In my search for descendants of Pierre Lagacé and Marcelline David, Tammy and Alyce were the only two persons to ask for help in finding their roots.
Alyce is the granddaughter of Idala Lagacé who goes also by the name of Idala Lagassé.
Both Idala and Ambroise are Pierre Lagacé’s sons. Idala is Alyce’s grandfather and Ambroise is Tammy’s children’s great-great-grandfather.
Pierre Lagacé married Marcelline David on February 4, 1850 in Notre-Dame-des-Anges church in Notre-Dame-de-Stanbridge, a village in Missisquoi county just north of Lake Champlain.
I knew all about him with the help of parish records and censuses.
