Post 822

Knowing when to stop is my biggest problem for curing this obsession for people’s ancestors.

Frobe is not a very common first name. Albert is more common.

I could have posted this right after my last post in September, but I managed to control myself, and wait until today instead.

How Frobe Caron got his first name is easy to find out if you look closely the image above.


I am pretty certain the F. in Albert F. Caron stands for Frobe.

How I met Alice?

Post 780

I have a new third cousin once removed that I will write about next week. This week someone wrote me. I had been 2 years since she had written. There was a good reason for not writing.

She is related to this Alice.

Alice Lagasse 1877-1956

I had written about this Alice on this blog. She is NOT Michael’s birthgrandmother even if I thought at first she might have been. Alice was a very common given name in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Point of fact…

If I write about Alice Lagasse this morning it’s because I got the green light to post this picture. It’s her son’s wedding picture shared in 2012 by one of my readers.

Frobe Caron was a third cousin once removed. He married Evelina Couet. They had at least these children.

If you are related, then you should write to me like Patricia did last month about the Alexandres and the Malloys.

I believe that Philomene Alexandre and Thomas Malloy are the great grandparents I have been searching for. My father was Francis J Malloy who was son of Ada Pendlebury and Thomas J Malloy. He was placed in an orphanage in 1914 so little is known about his family. Would you share any information you have.
Thank you,

How I met your mother?

There is a story I never told before on this blog.

How Michael met his mother?

He never did meet her, but he will soon meet his family.

In 2010 Michael wrote a message to Alice LaGasse. Alice is my sweet Alice. He probably read the posts I wrote about how I found Alice’s ancestors.

band of brothers

Michael wanted her help to find his birth mother. He had just a few clues: the given name Alice, the surname Lagasse, and information on his birth. Alice turned to me for help. I never thought I would have been able to help.

This is what got me started.


Michael’s birthgrandmother’s given name was there!

Alice… who was a daughter of Dennis Lagasse who died in 1922.

The rest of this story I will never tell, but I can tell you all about this one the next time we meet on this blog.
