Of Course It Does Matter

Suzan commented on yesterday’s post in response to a reader.

You didn’t smile in pictures back then. It was a BIG event to have your picture taken and you didn’t play around (smile) and you wore your best or borrowed clothing at the studio. I do believe that is Elva. Her great-grandson inherited those eyes and her great-great-grandson too.

Does it matter if the little girl in the red circle is Elva Lagassa or not?

It does because if she is Elva, then this is her big brother Arthur J. Lagassa.

This is Arthur J. Lagasa’s obituary.

LaGasa, 1966 Nov 25

So much information like what I found in Dennis Lagasse III’s obituary.


Susan have been contributing a lot since Wednesday.

Did I say a lot?

These pictures are only the tip of  the iceberg.

Speaking of icebergs, you should see Bob Barrette’s family tree on Ancestry.

Footnote to this post…

I wanted to take a breather on this blog for the rest of summer. I think I was caught by surprise when I visited Bob’s Facebook page and read Keoni LaGasa’s request for information on his ancestors.

Guess I got carried away.
