How I met your ancestors? – Episode Three: August 9, 1842

Now back to our normal scheduled program…

This marriage certificate was the link to all that I have found about your ancestors since 2009.

Stanislas Lagacé was my grandfather’s father, but Maria Landry was not my grandmother. She was my grandfather’s first wife seen here with her family.

Maria is in the first row on the left. Maria did not die and my grandfather had not remarried. My grandfather left here in the 1920s. He was kind of forced to leave.

That story has been told at length on this blog.

Stanislas Lagacé and Henriette Alexandre were my grandfather’s parents.

With this I was able to find all about Dennis Lagasse and Henriette’s 12 other children.

It was then I had the brillant idea of creating Our Ancestors to try to contact distant relatives.

Sometimes getting too excited about your ancestors is not such a good thing.
