Call Them Distant Relatives… Rita Hazel

Someone just informed me in a comment just made that Rita Hazel has passed away.

Diane wrote this…

thought I would let you know that my aunt Rita Hazel, only daughter of Leo and Ida Combe passed away about a month ago. I think she was 91 or 92. The only sibling left is Henry Combe, my wonderful father.

This is the wedding picture of Leo Combe and Ida Ashley.

Leo Combe and Ida are Rita Combe Hazel’s parents.

Sylvia Bleau Combe is besides Ida who is next to her mother Agnes Alexandre. Agnes is the daughter of my great-grandaunt Philomene Lagasse (Lagacé).

Back in 2007 when I started looking for my ancestors I did not know she had existed.

These people became a big part of my family since then. There are no more distant relatives of mine…

When to Stop Searching for Ancestors?

Whenever you feel like it. But it’s hard to resist that temptation to dig deeper and deeper.

Ron DepatieOne reader on the French version of this blog gave us a hand and found some information on Gladys Melanson and on Vera Anita Hiatt, William Melanson Junior’s wife.

Vera married three times.

I sent this information to Ron. I also sent him the information on Gladys and her husband Harry Gray.

This is what my reader found…

Probably never because you are never sure that what you have found is the right information.
