How I met Bernadette on Family Search?

I had little to go on, but I guess I was lucky.

I am trying to find out about my father’s  family. He is ***. He was born and grew up in and around Boston Massachusetts. His mother we do not know anything about. Their is a Bernadette Moreau.

Then the floodgates opened wide with Bernadette’s twin sisters and her mother’s name!

This  is  how this search began last night when I left this final reply to someone who had sent me this private message using this post

I am trying to find out about my father’s  family. He is ***. He was born and grew up in and around Boston Massachusetts. His mother we do not know anything about. There is a Bernadette Moreau. She married a man called Phillip Moreau in we think France. Some of the people in your blogs look a lot like I do and my father. There are no pictures or info. Do you have the last names in your family tree that I have posted above? Sure do appreciate any help you can give. I would like to let my two sons have something of both sides of the family. Let me know if you do or don’t. Enjoyed your blog a lot! Thank you so much.

Who was I kidding?

I thought I had gotten over my addiction for people’s ancestors.

But I got curious and started looking for Bernadette Moreau on Family Search.

The more I looked, the more I found out about Bernadette and her ancestors.

Searching for Irma Ribori?

This is Irma whom I thought was Emma in 2010. She was the lovely wife of Rudolph Lagasse, son of Idala Lagasse and Albina Quintin.

Rudy and his wife

I took six years to find out who she was.

Alyce wrote me about how November is a little hard on her. So I got curious and looked at her ancestors to find out why.

Could not find much except for Samuel Lagasse who passed away on November 30, 1974.

Samuel is much more than a headstone in a cemetery.

The Samuel LaGasse's family

I know some of Samuel’s descendants read my blog. I am sure none of Rudi’s descendants read it…

At least for now.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not a ghost…

I have never met one.

The only time I was confronted was when my mother died.

I did not see her but my brother-in-law did the night she died. He did not make this story up, that I am sure of…

I have been writing this blog since 2009. I have written more than 1000 posts.

Tony told me I was a prolific writer. I write to share what I have found about ancestors no longer with us like my great-grandfather Stanislas.

Dennis Lagasse II

I would have like to tell you more about Adolphe Pierre and Elphège Lagacé, but I think I scared away their descendants.

Not the two little boys because I have talked about them on this blog as well as their father Frobe Lagasse on the extreme right in the first rwo.

Everything is on the blog.
