Just use the search button…

You’ve got to be curious to read this blog, and use the search button like Joe did last week… This is just an example of what I have been doing on my blog since 2009.

It’s all about old pictures.

These twelve pictures were shared by Frank Archambault in 2012 when he got all excited with his ancestors.

Twelve tintype pictures.

More if you count this one.

All the pictures were related to his great-grandfather Jean-Baptiste Archambault who we see here in front of his house. This is not a tintype picture of course.

Jean-Baptiste’s wife Emélie Mercier is on the left. On the right is probably one of his daughters and a grandchild. I just can’t get enough of old pictures especially when I can’t identify who is on them.

This is Jean-Baptiste again.

Proud and keeping still. He went by the name John Shambo.

Jean-Baptiste Archambault aka John Shambo

Emilie Mercier

Émilie Mercier aka Emily Mercer

There is always a story behind each picture even if it is reversed for unknown reasons.

This next woman I am sure is Mary Archambault, daughter of Émilie Mercier and Jean-Baptiste Archambault.

Mary Archambault

Everyone related to her can enjoy this beautiful picture of a beautiful young lady. Mary Archambault would marry her daughter Ida Ashley later in life…

Her brother William married Myra Alexandre in 1902.

I think he is the little boy on the left on the top row and also on the left in the middle row.

So when all this search is going to stop?

Probably not in the nearest future.

  1. My brother has some old magic lantern slides of my grandfather when he was in Saskatchwan in the early 1900s They are fascinating and I migh get a few copies from him one day.

    • Fascinating… what is more fascinating is how people are connecting through my blogs and sharing like Frank. He had several old pictures with no names. One day someone will come along with names.

  2. In reading your posts, Pierre, I’ve sort of wished I had some French in my lineage to try and find a connection to some of these people you research.
