I’ll be turning 84 next December…
Little old moi in 1949
2032, that’s still a long way to go before I can get my hand on an old picture of Henriette Alexandre, my great-grandmother.
Call it an obsession if you want.
I have been blessed so far by distant relatives who have been sharing their precious old pictures with me, and allowed me to share them with you since 2009.
These are the first two pictures I posted on this blog in September 2009. I am not the man seen here on this picture.
How I met Paul-Émile Chaumont is how I came to meet all those who have been sharing their pictures and their stories with me since then.
Call it obsession is you want…
Did you know I have more than 34,000 individual files on my private Ancestry tree I started back in 2009 after migrating my Gedcom from My Heritage to Ancestry?
Did you know I have more than 5,000 pictures on my private tree on Ancestry?
Did you know I have written more than 900 posts on this blog, and even more on its French version Nos ancêtres?
Did you know I have more than one blog?
Did you know I always reply to requests people send me?
Did you know no money is involved in all of this? No DNA testing also.
Did you know I am still waiting for David Victor Lagasse’s old pictures he promised he would send last month? Or is it two months ago?
Did you know how patient I can be?
Did you know this was one of the first pictures I posted on this blog, and the person who sent it never wrote back never giving an explanation?
He has to be crazy to look for dead people, and inventing captions…
Don’t blame me for posting so much since yesterday. Blame Michael.
I was quite surprised to find Jean-Baptiste Carignan’s file in my database.
I was more surprised when I found out he was married four times.
Whom did he married last?
You are now our new A-Team member.
Thanks to you, people looking for their roots will owe you a lot.
I had not noticed the car.
