Meet Paul’s Great-great-grandparents

I don’t know if Paul Dauphin had this picture of his maternal ancestors.

This picture was one of almost a thousand pictures scanned from the city hall’s archives. It belongs to Ginette Leclair who is related to the Leclair family.

This particular picture is part of Rosario Gauthier’s collection, one of best renown genealogists in Quebec. Rosario died in 2008 and was interred in Ste-Anne’s cemetery,

Rosario Gauthier would visit people in his hometown of Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines and would give them pictures of their ancestors. This is how we are now able to share this picture of Paul’s great-great-grandparents.

We owe Rosario a lot. He had more than 200 pictures in his collection and many people here in Sainte-Anne still have them.

I had seen the Lacasse-Charbonneau picture, but it was not that interesting… until two days ago when Paul Dauphin from North Carolina wrote a comment on this blog.

This is a beautiful story which is only beginning as Paul will discover when he visits us in July. Just like Ron Depatie and Doris Chaumont, he will be amazed at what he will see and find out about his roots.


Stay tuned for more…

Next time, I will show you two pictures Paul sent me and wants to share with you.

  1. I don’t know about everyone else, but I know I will be staying right here because this is the best news station in Quebec I found.

    There is nowhere else like this you can go and watch “All in the Family’s” and besides the commercials will make you laugh.


  2. Oh yes, I am having fun like always.

    I hope you are not getting the rain there like we are getting it here.

    If it wasn’t for the weather, my brother Roger asked me to drive to his place last night if I was going that way for the weekend and pick him up and take him for a trip to see your town. If it had been a nice dry night for driving perhaps we would all be eating breakfast together right now down the street.

    As you can see I chose to stay dry and read the Cyberpaper, at least for this weekend.

  3. I knew I was going to get you all excited… but I never thought your brother Roger would be.
    You can bring him along anytime.

  4. Well I thank you. Really you know, I should never go to Quebec with out him.
    He knows how to speak the parlay perfect unlike myself. I am sure we all would have a great time with him along.

    Roger’s genes are very strong to the Therrien side and he carries their look.
