This one’s for you Fran!
I had a flash…
It was among this collection scanned by Robin in 2011.
Mother of…Amelia Alexandre?

A special greeting to my friend Ralph in Paris on this holiday and to my friend Michel in Amiens! Need I add a hearty and heartfelt vive la France!?
I will probably have 1000 posts on this blog by the end of 2015.
This is post no. 947.
This is not a race against time, but try stopping my grandfather if you can.
Val d’Or Lagacé sent me this photocopied document in 2008. He was then the secretary of l’Association des Lagacé. He was the one responsible for my addiction.
Don’t blame me!
In that document was my paternal grandfather’s mother’s name: H Alexandre. That was enough information to find a lost child’s paternal lineage in 2009.

You can also blame Joe T. for that matter because he shared this old picture of Marguerite, Henriette’s sister.
Marguerite Alexandre was his great-great-grandmother making Joe and I 3rd cousins.
Joe lives in Connecticut where my great-grandfather Dennis Lagasse II died in 1927.
Connecticut is where I met Joe in 2011. We both share common interests like visiting cemeteries…
And old pictures…
I shared everything with my grandfather who, in turn, posted everything on this blog.
Did I mention Joe likes to look for other people’s ancestors also?
This is how it all started back in 2010.
These pictures were labeled late 1890s, Bristol, Connecticut, according to a distant cousin.
That’s all she knew at that time…

This is how my compulsive search started…
Three unknown young women who in fact were sisters.
