with the weather I mean?
That bad weather you are having down South is not our fault… here in French Canada.
We have nothing to do with it.
French-Canadians are mostly fun people… and very friendly specially when it comes to genealogy.
You don’t believe it…?
Ron and I
You see 900,000 French-Canadians emigrated to the United States in the 1800s and the 1900s. Ron emigrated to Ontario when he was young. He found his roots in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines and I showed him around town.
Ron wants to come back to Quebec very badly…
Eileen Katherine Sovie
This is one of the descendants of someone who moved to the United States in the 1800s…
Eileen is very special, so is this picture.
Eileen Sovie is very special to Odette Clouthier.
You see, Eileen Sovie is Odette’s grandmother.
As I said yesterday, Odette has been looking for her roots since 2000, and she knew a few thing about her grandmother’s lineage.
With what she knew, and with the help of Denis, her 2nd cousin, I was able to link Eileen Sovie to Joseph Sauvé and Mathilde Leduc.
Joseph Sauvé, as you must know by now, was Honoré Sauvé’s brother.
I had found everything about my great-great-grandfather Honoré back in 2007…
That’s great-great Pierre…
Honoré looks a bit like me… if you take out the glasses… and take a little bit hair off the top.
I share something more than common ancestors with Odette.
Call it pride.
