Sam and Tilda

I just love old pictures even if I am not closely related to people who are pictured.

This picture is called a cabinet card. I don’t collect them per se, I just share them on Our Ancestors since 2009.

Salomon Ringquist  and Matilda  Larsson emigrated to the United States from Sweden. At least this is what I could find about them thanks to Jen who shared several old pictures and got me curious

This is another picture…

Joe also had these pictures in his collection of old pictures.

I knew who she was.

He also had this one…

young Myra Alexandre daughter of Philomene Lagasse and Jean-Baptiste Alexandre

Ditto… Myra Alexandre.

This old picture comes from Robin who isn’t even related, but shared more than 100 old pictures.

Aunt Phoebe and Aunt Myra

This is how I found out who Phoebe was when I compared a picture sent in 2010 by Sandy, another third cousin…

Phoebe Alexandre and Myra Alexandre - sisters

Phoebe (Flavie) Alexandre and her sister Myra Alexandre

There is so much more to this story…

Everything is written on this blog created in September 2009 which now has 1001 posts.

I know I will reach 2000 in a few years down the road because there are so many more third cousins looking for lost ancestors out there on cyberspace.
