If you are, I know a lot about your French-Canadian roots.
I know you’re just dying…to know who is also on this old picture.
This man is Arthur Lefebvre, Clara’s brother. He is seen here on this group picture with his brother Hervé Lefebvre sitting on a chair.
I write this blog so people will remember their loved ones. I also write to link up with Americans who have French-Canadian roots. It’s a great feeling when someone contacts me about a picture or an article I posted on Our Ancestors. I have been writing a lot since 2009 and I have made a lot of Americans happy along the way. Every time I get a chance, I write to share my research with people. Some of these people have distant relatives in the U.S.
Arthur, Clara and Hervé had a sister Philana.
Philana Lefebvre was born in 1876. Her father was Modeste Lefebvre and her mother Sophie Charette. She had three brothers and five sisters.
