Addicted?

Israël  and Olive

Cassandra should be, but not enough to read all the posts written on this blog.

This is post no. 865.

Reading all my posts would indeed be a sure sign of addiction to genealogy.

What about this small picture?

Addicted?

If you are addicted to Our Ancestors, I am sure you will come back later.

As a footnote, Cassandra, I  sent  you  an  invitation  to view  Robert’s private  family  tree. Check  your  inbox!

Hard to believe?

André Mignier first ancestor

What about this clue I found on the Internet among the other clues? Is it valid information or just information copied from someone’s else research?

One clue tells all!

Michel Mignier born around 1610 died in 1727!

117 years old!

Suspicious enough not to trust everything I found yesterday in my search for George Lagasse who married Albertine Deschênes.

I have learned not to trust everything I find on the Internet, or people who say they know it all. Having been hooked on genealogy since 2007 because of old pictures like this one…

Honoré Sauvé et Julie Leroux

I have learned more than just who were my ancestors. Always check first, then check again, and again.

This being said…

This information seems valid though.

Napoléon Lagacé

I can corroborate this information with this.

1901 Joseph L Lagassé

Joseph L. Lagassé’s family is seen here. Joseph’s wife is Ellen Lagassé who was in fact Helen Grant whose daughter was Anna Ellen Lagassé born in 1900 whose real name was…

Mrs. Lejeune was the mid-wife.

In 1901, Joseph was a carpenter. Ernest Thibeault was a lodger, and I suspect he was related somewhat to Joseph’s first wife Marie Thibault, Napoléon’s mother.

Napoléon Lagacé

Marie Thibault probably died when she gave birth to Marie Julia in 1896.

Joseph Lagace

Joseph had to remarry, and he found a new wife living not far from where he lived…

1891 James Grant

About André Mignier…

This is my file on him.

Rolled eyes – Redux

I really like this post I wrote a few months ago…

Rosh had used Rolled eyes in a comment.

ORIGINAL POST

I really like that expression Rosh had used in a comment.

Rolled eyes.

In fact I don’t care that much about rolled eyes. I bring people to life on this blog so those who don’t roll their eyes can see them.

Idala 1930

I know Idala’s granddaughter isn’t the one to roll her eyes when she reads my blog.

I hope her grandchildren will open them wide one day.

DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD…

THE AUTHOR IS NOT KNOWN. IT WAS FOUND IN THE BILLFOLD OF COACH PAUL BEAR BRYANT, ALABAMA,  AFTER HE DIED IN 1982
The Magic Bank Account
Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.  However, this prize has rules:
The set of rules:
1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
3. You may only spend it.
4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.
5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, “Game Over!”. It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.
————————————-
What would you personally do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?
You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?
—————————————————————————–
ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL …
Shocked ??? YES!
Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can’t seem to see it.
—————————————
The PRIZE is *TIME*
1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds
as a gift of life.
2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.
3. What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.
4. Yesterday is forever gone.
5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING…
——————————————————————————————————————————————
SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?
Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.  Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.
So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!
Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending”….
“DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD…!”
SOME PEOPLE DON’T GET THE PRIVILEGE!

I am not quitting just taking it easy from now on… Redux

I had written this in September 2014…

That was 30 years ago. Time flies doesn’t it.

So I got curious about what I had written some 30 years ago.

I wanted to do this in July.

Look how many posts were published in July…

29!

In August…

37!

I think I should keep the promise I made at the end of June and repair my B-17!

See you then next Monday with more about Harry.

Pierre, the repairs on the B-17 are long overdue…

Next time, we travel back in time to see Lovely Rita and find out more about her life.
