A Canadian Family

Natives, French Canadians, Acadians

Some French Canadian Lagasses (Lagace) from Quebec to New Hampshire

Today we have a very special treat – the first of what will be several Guest Posts by Maine family historian Peter Lagasse. Peter and I first met a few months ago when he contacted me with extra information about his Lagasse (Lagace) lineage.  We have something in common besides genealogy because we’re both from the field of education – though Peter’s background is in the states of Maine and Vermont where he’s been active for over 25 years.

His interest in genealogy started only four years ago but I can attest to the fact that he’s already amassed a fair amount of information on his French Canadian ancestors. Peter will be sharing genealogical information, and various photographs, artefacts and primary documents related to his Lagasse/Lagace lineage, but in addition, he’ll also be sharing some surprising twists in the process of his research. Last of all, Peter will introduce other non-Lagace connections to his Canadian heritage since one cannot tell the story of a family while disregarding the other lines of one’s heritage!

Guest Post 1: Peter Lagasse

The information so graciously shared by Evelyn about my Lagace/Mignier Quebec line ( Evelyn in Montreal: Some Lagasses of Maine/Massachusetts/New Hampshire) will be revised slightly from the information I will share about Joseph Lagace/Mignier’s other children and two more marriages. We will keep Joseph Lagace/Mignier as number 9 but his children from Emma St Hilaire will have numbers changed because of additions. I wish to give thanks to my second cousin, Murielle Mailhot, of Montreal for giving me leads to Joseph’s other marriages. Murielle’s grandmother, Florida Lagace/Mignier was the sister of my grandfather, Joseph Gaudiose Lagace/Mignier.

Note: Peter’s direct ancestors marked in bold/green.
