Collection Lionel Lagasse via Dennis Lagasse IV
This is just one of the many pictures Dennis has shared. He has shared more than 100 old pictures, and each one has its own story to tell.
I know Dennis is enjoying the blog as well as those who write comments once and awhile. You don’t have to comment every time I post something.
Sharing is what fuels Our Ancestors.
I had written about the A-Team who are all the people who have shared so much since 2009.
I like to add a touch of humour to Our Ancestors.
Genealogy is a serious business. People make a lot of money. I don’t.
I never cut corners and make you believe things like who was Hector Philias Lamothe in old pictures.
This week I posted this beautiful picture. A lovely pregnant wife with her nice looking husband.
At first I believed the man was young Dennis Lagasse II with his pregnant wife Henriette Alexandre. Maybe I thought my grandfather Leo was also on this picture.
But I was wrong.
The time frame was all wrong. It could not be winter 1887 in Notre-Dame-des-Anges in Quebec. The only possible couple was his first son Antoine (Anthony) and Délia Bertrand whom I first met on a visit to St. Thomas Cemetery in 2011 with 3rd cousin Joe.
I had written about that visit to St. Thomas Cemetery where Anthony rests in peace since 1934 surrounded by two of his children Aurore and Joseph.
I had also written about Joseph in 2012.
And about his brother William…
