  1. Hello Mr. Lagace: I found your website yesterday….. Albertine Lagasse was my great aunt on my mother’s side. Her nickname was Bertha. I was born in Hartford CT and lived in Agawam, MA. Aunt Bertha had several other siblings. I have their dates of birth and marriages if you are interested. I visited with almost all of her siblings and they spent time at our home as I was growing up. I love all the pictures that you have. It was rumored that we had native American possibly micmaq. I recently had a DNA test done and I have native american. I am planning to have a mtDNA test done next. I was given a picture of a native American woman and her husband with no info. I was told it was Abbie Oakes (Deschenes) but I think it might be Henriette Lavigne Oakes married to Electus Oakes.
