Written exacty three years ago!
That was before I met virtually Dennis Lagasse the Fourth from Connecticut, and more than 100 precious old pictures his father Lionel had kept.
Boy was I excited!
Just a glimpse…
Time flies doesn’t it?
Last day of July.
Is time spent looking for our ancestors a waste of time…?
Of course it’s not.
Brian LeGacy told me he could not get to sleeep after I gave him a helping hand and he started digging for himself.
Is it worth losing sleep over our ancestors…?
Of course it’s worth.
Some psychologists say that we can find strength when we discover our roots.
I am no psychologist but I think we might have something there.
Pierre Lagacé and his brother Stanislas Lagacé (Dennis Lagasse) on a park bench probably in Connecticut probably around 1905
You see back in 2007 when I started getting interested in genealogy I did not know Stanislas Lagacé had ever existed. Of course I knew I had a great-grandfather but I knew nothing of my grandfather’s parents. Four years later, I am helping people find their roots.
Joseph Mignier dit Lagacé was the son of Michel Mignier dit Lagacé. You will find some information on the Internet and some also on Ancestry.
Some information that are suggested might be erronous down the road. I just found out on Ancestry that some people have “discovered” André Mignier dit La Gâchette grandparents!
Wow that is quite a big surprise…!
I don’t mind some little errors on dates, but this couple got married in 1802! André Mignier came in New France in 1665 with the Carignan Salières regiment.
I won’t lose any sleep over this, but I find it a little annoying when some people put such wrong information about their ancestors or other people’s ancestors….
This reminds me of a distant 3rd cousin of mine who had my mother’s birthdate wrong on his family tree. I told him politely. He never changed it!
Finally, the final link to Brian’s roots…
Now it’s Bonnie’s turn to get all excited.
