Our Ancestors is about preserving the past for future generations.
Laura just wrote a comment about Geraldine Sorel. Geraldine is her grandmother.
Hello, I am Geraldine’s granddaughter. I am interested in who might be doing this research.
In 2015 I had written once more about Geraldine Sorel in a post that was first written in 2013.
Laura’s comment rekindled my interest about Geraldine Sorel and how I came about to write about her.
This is the original post with the sequel written after.
Geraldine seems be have been the only child of Ernest Sorel (Sorell) and Amelia Alexandre (Alexander).
I don’t have a picture of Geraldine, but I know there are some out there. I have found the family in the 1940 U.S. Census now available online. Geraldine is 16.
There is a remote chance I will find some descendants of Amelia and Ernest. On April 3, 1940, Ernest Sorel (Earnest Sorel) was living at 211 Lafayette Street in New Britain, Hartford, Connecticut. He was an assistant foreman in a hardware factory. Ernest was born in Cambridge, Ontario, on August 2, 1891.
I know all about Ernest Sorel’s ancestors.
This information is now laying dormant…
One day it will blossom and make someone really happy.
The sequel written in 2015…
I am almost sure this is Caroline Ménard.
On this picture, the caption is wrong.
It doesn’t matter anymore. There were some wrong captions in the collection of old pictures Robin scanned in 2011, but it doesn’t matter anymore if we are almost sure this is Caroline Ménard.
Doesn’t matter a bit…if some captions were wrong.
