Marie-Louise Blanchard

If you are reading my blog for the first time, then you have to go back in time and read this article first and then proceed from there… If you don’t, it’s like watching only the last 5 minutes of a great classic movie.

LAST FIVE MINUTES…

I told you I had this feeling yesterday.

Would your great-grandmother’s or your grandmother’s name be Marie-Louise Blanchard? Would your great-grandfather’s or your grandfather’s name be Raoul J. Vezina?

Are you related to their children that I had found back in 2007?

Armand Vézina 1908 –
Lionel Vézina 1909 –
Émile Vézina 1911 – 1928
Raoul Vézina 1914 –
Louise Vézina 1918 –

If you are, then you’re in for a big surprise.

 

9 October, 1907, Springfield, Massachusetts

This is your great-grandparents’ or your grandparents’ wedding picture, and this is your great-grandfather’s or grandfather’s picture when he was young.

They could be also your great-great-grandparents.

This is a family picture supposedly taken in 1927 with Joseph Olivier Vezina your ancestor.

He is wearing the long overall.

The woman next to him is Josephine, his third wife, because Hermine Paiement, his second wife died in 1916. He was first married to Églantine Farmer.

I know a lot don’t I? It’s because I dig a lot…

This is Hermine’s mortuary card.

Want more?

Want to know Raoul’s occupation?

Pharmacist.

His birthdate?

February 9, 1884.

His father’s occupation in 1900?

Pawnbroker.

When did Raoul died? I am not sure about this one. Probably in January 1967.

I found a lot, but that’s not the point I want to make.

The point is finding relatives to be able to share all these pictures  just like I did with Fran.

So we will have to wait for someone to Google something like Raoul Vézina on the Internet and hope they find this blog someday.

Next time, how this great movie ends.

The Time is Right

If you are reading my blog for the first time, then you have to go back in time and read this article first and then proceed from there… If you don’t, it’s like watching only the last 5 minutes of a great classic movie.

PROCEED…

I hope Fran has been reading my blog since Monday. I have not heard from her since last weekend.

She probably never heard about Raoul Vézina.

Try Googling that on the Internet.

I had this picture since July 2007.

I think the time is right to show it.

Raoul Vézina was the son of Herminie Paiement.

At least I think so.

This is a younger Raoul.

Same hair do.

This is a family picture taken probably in Springfield, Massachusetts.

This is the original.

A Chrismas card sent in 1927 to someone in Ste-Marthe in Vaudreuil County in the province of Quebec.

I know this is not Christmas time, but I just wanted to put a smile on Fran’s face if she is reading this.

Before I leave, one more thing about Raoul… I did not do a lot of research on that family back in 2007 when I first scanned them.

What I know was put on my Ancestry site.

Now, the time is right to go looking for those people’s descendants in the U.S.  Of course I am going to start looking for Marie’s surname.

Something is telling me I won’t have any problem.

There’s Something About Marie

A great classic movie.

Fran, our new A Team member, is going to love this.

It’s not about this Mary…

It’s about this Marie.

Fran might not be related to this Marie. I am about 100% sure about that. But then again I might be wrong and she could be related.

I only know this bride by her first name: Marie. That’s the little information I had on her back in 2007.

Enticed to visit again my blog next time and read all about Marie? I know someone who will.

100% sure!
