  1. Wow, a great site with so many very interesting and local (for me, anyway) postcards. I have a site of postcards too that all relate to Montréal, either they were sent here or sent from here. Where do you get the postcards from? http://didyougetmypostcard.wordpress.com Check it out.

  2. Hello, I am currently trying to fill the gaps in my family tree. Growing up I was always told that I am Algonquin first nation on my mothers side, whom I was estranged from during most of my childhood. I have asked some family members on that side for more details and none of them can give me any. Nobody wants to talk about it. For them it may not be important, and it may perceptually break apart the identity they hold to, so I understand but none the less I am frustrated. I have a list of names and so far I have not been able to find anything on my own. Both sets of grandparents on my mothers side are francophone, but I am unsure of where either of them came from. All I know is that for part of my mothers childhood they lived in Ottawa. I also have family ties to Connecticut on my mother’s mothers side. I have also added my fathers grandparents to the list as my grandmother is curious about her fathers side.

    Mother: Madeline Belanger

    Grandmother (M): Alma Belanger

    Grandfather (M): Louis Cousineau

    Father: Clifford Ethier

    Grandmother (P): Mary Rose

    Grandfather (P): Hectar Ethier

    Father: Georges Arthur Couture

    Grandmother (P): Marie-Anna Beauregard

    Grandfather (P): Alderick Couture

    Please help, it would mean the a lot to me:)

    Thank you for your time
