October  27th, 1915, a little baby girl was born. Her name was Marie Ernestine Blanche Gendron. Her name is still Marie Ernestine Blanche because Blanche was celebrating her 100th birthday yesterday.

How I came to know about Blanche and her long search for her ancestors is a sad yet beautiful story thanks to Lise Andrée, her daughter-in-law.
