From the personal collection of Lionel Lagasse
Many people have been remembering Amanda Ménard through old photos on Our Ancestors since 2009.
Amanda was my grandfather’s sister-in-law.
My grandfather Leo Senior never talked to me about his sister-in-law Amanda Ménard nor about his older brother Dennis who had died in 1922.
In fact, I can’t recall my grandfather ever spoke to me about his family. I can’t even recall he ever spoke to me once when I was a child.
Maybe that’s the reason I have been writing to much on Our Ancestors.
My grandfather died on January 1st, 1964.
This is how he spoke to me about his family for the first time in his life back in 2009.
That document was shared by Val d’Or Lagacé who, at that time, was the secretary for L’Association des familles Lagacé et Lagassé. L’Association has now a Facebook page. They still use La Gâchette as André Mignier dit l’Agacé’s nickname.
Last week I wrote them about it on their Facebook page.
Getting back to Amanda, I wrote a lot about her and her 12 children since 2009.
I intended to be posting only on Sunday mornings, thus the title of this post.
However there are so many stories to be told like the story about this other Amanda Menard.
And how I met Pamela Dubé in 2012.
How I met the Dalys in 1937…
And how I met Georges Dubé and his wife Angèle Miville-Deschênes on Facebook.
