Lost ancestors – Looking for H. Alexandre

I will  probably  have 1000 posts  on this blog by the end of 2015.

This is post no. 947.

This is not a race against time, but try stopping my grandfather if you can.

Val d’Or Lagacé sent me this photocopied document in 2008. He was then the secretary of l’Association des Lagacé. He was the one responsible for my addiction.

Don’t blame me!

In that document was my paternal grandfather’s mother’s name: H Alexandre. That  was enough information to find  a lost child’s paternal lineage in 2009.

You can also blame  Joe T. for that matter because he shared this old picture  of  Marguerite, Henriette’s  sister.

Marguerite  Alexandre was his great-great-grandmother making Joe and I 3rd cousins.

Joe lives in Connecticut where my great-grandfather Dennis Lagasse II  died  in 1927.

Connecticut  is  where  I  met  Joe in 2011. We  both  share common  interests like visiting  cemeteries…

And old pictures…

I shared everything with my grandfather who, in turn, posted everything on this blog.

Did I mention Joe likes to look for other people’s ancestors also?
