From melodysheep – “We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos – to name a few.

I could go on and on with what I found since 2007 about Pierre Lagacé and Marcelline David’s descendants, most of whom have no idea who their ancestors were.
This is what I had to remember him with.
Before being on Ancestry I was on My Heritage.
I had found Pierre Adolphe’s first wife and five children. Later I learned how to search for parish records. Pierre Adolphe was born and baptized on March 14, 1851.
Parish records are primary sources.
Later on I found the Family Search Website with its collection of documents.
Now getting back to this photo of Joseph…
I had Joseph Lagacé in my family tree way back in 2009. He was married to Salomé Pollender whose father was with the Meuron Regiment fighting against the Americans during the war of 1812. Joseph Lagacé and Salomé Pollender were just names. I had no photos. That was before I looked at my family tree on Ancestry last week and lo and behold (I like that expression) I stumbled upon this group photo in Joseph’s profile!
A full size scan of an old picture with Pierre Adolphe dead center.
I had not been that excited since Dennis Lagasse IV sent me more than one hundred old pictures his father Lionel had kept of his paternal ancestors.

The above photos are mostly about Dennis Lagassey III, his sons, and his father Dennis Lagasse II.
So Joseph Lagacé and Salomé Pollender were just names in 2009 with no photos, now the time is right to make them famous on Our Ancestors as well as their descendants.
