Remember Sandy…?

I know I told you I was not going to write more articles until September, but I know Ron, Sandy, Joe, and Melissa will understand my passion for genealogy and for writing about it.

Sometimes I get carried away.

Last year Melissa wrote a comment on my blog and I never continued on with that story…

Melissa was someone who was stuck with her Lagacé lineage. She’s an 8th cousin once removed

Hi Pierre,

I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ve been so immersed in all the wonderful information you’ve found for me, that I’ve been neglecting nearly every other aspect of my life. I guess it would be a bit of an understatement to say I have a ‘bit’ of an obsession with genealogy!

I appologize for not getting back to you sooner. I’ve found some more info which you may be interested in checking out yourself.


Take a look.

Let me know if you find anything good.

Best!

Melissa

You see, it’s very dangerous stuff when you answer one of my messages left on Ancestry… You don’t know what is going to hit you just like Keoni who left a message on Facebook about Mitchell LaGasa.

As for Sandy, she had been sending a lot of pictures since we first met on the Internet in 2010.

This was my favorite picture.

Sandy did not know the identity of the young women, so I saved that picture under the name “sisters”.

This picture was part of the collection someone gave her a long time ago.

My cousin Joe lives in the United States and he also wanted to share a picture with me two years ago.

His grandfather Joseph Terrien is on the left top row. Joe thought my great-grandfather Stanislas Lagacé (Dennis Lagasse) was also on this picture.

Joe took the time to write me, just as I took the time to write to Melissa.

You see Stanislas Lagacé was Joseph Terrien’s uncle or Joe’s granduncle if you prefer. Joseph Terrien’s mother was Marguerite Alexandre the sister of Henriette Alexandre who was Stanislas Lagacé’s wife.

Dennis Lagasse II

Joe and I are third cousins!

I know very little about Henriette Alexandre and I would wish I had a picture of her.

I also know very little about “la société Saint-Jean-Baptiste”.

Last year someone who lives in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines sent me a picture. He had little information about it. I knew it was taken around 1906-1907 in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines because I could identify some men in the picture.

Déjà vu?

These men are part of “la société Saint-Jean-Baptiste” in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines where I live. The medals are the same.

Small world.

Footnote

I posted this article by mistake. It was a draft article written last year. I decided to keep it by editing it a little.

Tomorrow, more on Sandy and the unknown sisters.
