But You Have to Know When to Stop

Our Ancestors

Genealogy can be time consuming.

So learning when to stop is all important.

Searching for ancestors is the same as playing video games.

– Harold, for the last time, your supper will be cold!
– I’ll be there soon Mother…

It’s all about getting a dopamine rush.

I just had one yesterday when someone wrote a comment on one of my other blogs.

It was about his uncle who was a Spitfire pilot in WWII.

Our Ancestors

If you are reading my blog for the first time, then you have to go back in time and read this article first and then proceed from there… If you don’t, it’s like watching the last 5 minutes of a great movie classic.

THE END…

I don’t think that the person who posted that picture will mind if I post it. I have not heard from her or him.

Here is the picture I was talking about.

I found it on this site.

The caption reads…

Left to Right: Sarah (1880 – 1966) and Louise Blanchard (1886 – 1920),
Daughters of Zore/Laura (LaPlant) and Victor Blanchard

Picture was taken in North Adams, Massachusetts

Property of Marion Lawrence

I had told myself this week… Why wait for someone to contact me? Make it happen.

I went on a wild goose chase on Google.

And this is what I found.

Thank you for getting back to me… – Redux

Four years ago…

Sandy was one of the first cousin to write.

My new found distant cousin Sandy posted a message on my new Ancestry family tree page.

I had decided last month to migrate my family tree from My Heritage to Ancestry.

Sandy must have been all excited when she found out that another Lagacé had information on her ancestors and that he wrote back so quickly.

I’m quick on the trigger…

Hi Pierre,

Thank you for getting back to me.

With your information online. They match up to my family tree.

Last year a cousin gave me quite a few photos of the Lagasse line. And I have been researching them with where they were taken. They are from Bristol, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

And I have just cleared up a mystery on the Dennis Lagasse  person as he changed his name from Stanislas Lagasse who married Henriette Alexandre.

I have been going round and round with the name Dennis Lagasse.

I think the photos I have are from this family. Not sure of the names, but they are taken in Bristol, Connecticut.

I have gotten all the way back on our line. Lots of information.

I have researched the whole line that was in Fall River, Massachusetts and New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Bristol, Connecticut on the Lagasse line.

My line from Stanislas Lagasse and Onésime Cadieux.

Their child  Pierre Lagasse married Mathilde Leblanc.

Pierre Lagasse and Mathilde Leblanc’s child was Julian Wilfred Lagasse.   I am sending a photo of him with brothers and one I am not sure of.

Sitting: left is Julian Wilfred Lagasse and Joseph Lagasse is to the right.

I received them from his son Edmond and his wife.  When she passed away then their children gave them to me.

I also have a photo of Pierre Lagasse married to Mathilde Leblanc.

If you would like to see the photos I have then I will send them along to you.

Sandy

If you have been reading my blog, then you know how crazy I am about photographs…

See you next Monday with more photos from Sandy’s collection and more about the mysterious Dennis Lagasse.

Flore Lauzon

I told you it’s going to be hard to write only once a week.

That’s Alice D. Myers’ mother.

Médard Myers

I have not found much on Flore Lauzon, and probably never will. I have found much more about the Myers though thanks to the readers who shared so much.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You just have to search for the words Myers in the search engine.

This is how you should read this blog with more than 700 posts. The more you share, the more I write. If you write, they will come said one of my readers once.

This stuck in my mind.

If you write, they will come…

 

Mary Malloy

Molloy child

I believe that Philomene Alexandre and Thomas Malloy are the great grandparents I have been searching for. My father was Frances J Malloy who was son of Ada Pendlebury and Thomas J Malloy. He was placed in an orphanage in 1914 so little is know about his family. Would you share any information you have.
Thank you,

Footnote

Philomene Alexandre was Philomène Lagacé’s daughter.
