Young Man 1

You have to start somewhere when someone sends you old pictures like this one Sandy sent me two years ago.

1890s Bristol, Conn.

I identified her as 1890s Bristol, Conn. back in 2010, but last year I found out who she was.

She is Mary Alexander (Marie Alexandre) daughter of John B Alexander (Jean-Baptiste Alexandre) and Philomene Lagasse (Philomène Lagacé).

Here’s another picture.

He was identified as young man 1.

Now I know who he is because someone sent me more pictures.

I am just waiting for the go-ahead to tell you more.

Another beautiful chapter opens up on this blog as many more thousands of Americans will link up with their French-Canadian ancestors.
