Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville was not my ancestor but his grandfather was!
His godmother Anne Lemoyne is my direct ancestor. I found that out while helping Judi find Abraham Dubé one of her ancestors. I was not able to find more about Abraham even with the help of Susan.
Sometimes you reach a dead end when looking for ancestors, but there is always something new you can find while looking.
I am not looking for famous people.
Some people do and I don’t mind that at all.
Before I started writing Our Ancestors I did not know Emeril Lagasse had ever existed.
Someone had written a comment looking for her kids’ lineage. So I wrote a few posts about Emeril who is a very distant cousin of mine (8 generation back). That lady never wrote back, but one of her two sons did but never wrote back after.
I can live with that…
I never post anything special about famous people, just when I stumble upon someone who was made famous by history books.
In my book this old lady is just as famous as any famous people.
That’s the reason I have been writing that much since 2009.
But I guess you already know that don’t you?
