Why?

I will tell you why…

Our Ancestors

I have been asking myself that question for a long long time.

Why am I writing so much about our ancestors, yours and mine?

Since 2009?

Why?

Why this obsession for going back in time?

Lac du Flambeau

Why all that excitement when I found out lately that I was a proud descendant of Kinogenini, an Ojibwe woman born in Lac du Flambeau around 1750, the daughter of Mentosaky and Pemynany.

Kinogenini, the great-great grandmother of my great-grandfather Stanislas.

Why have you been reading this blog since I don’t know how long?

Sometimes there is no answer… unless you get all excited about what I have just read.

  1. I remember remarking how excited my cousin would be with this blog. But I don’t remember seeing your next entry.

  2. Strange that you should post this today as I am having lunch with my cousin; and yesterday I was part of a meeting to have a young intern adapt a program as the first step in digitizing our historical society’s vast collection.
