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

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?
