About My Precious Family
Please sign in to see more.

This journey into the past began in June 2006 when Mom presented me with Aunt Rose's doll that is over 110 yrs old. She began telling me stories and to say I was intrigued is an understatement. I made Mom an actual Family History Scrapbook full of stories, actual obituaries,restored photographs, Immigration records,naturalization papers,and prayer cards .This has been alot of work, but a labor of love. Very surprised to discover that I am a direct descendant of the French Royal Family! Charlemagne is my 38th great grandfather ,Marie Antoinette is my 5th great aunt! I'm a direct descendent of the Mayflower,and my tree is full of hard working, wonderful ship builders from Scotland who made their way to Prince Edward Island, farmers of the rich soil in Ireland, and a Mic Mac Indian for a great great grandmother ! I LOVE and am PROUD of ALL my ancestors !!!!

rosella2-zpsyyjjenxm I'd like to thank all those who provided me with so many dates, especially all my wonderful relatives on Prince Edward Island. In particular: Irene Burge who penned the marvelous book called " The Burdge Family History",John MacIsaac of NY for sending me 854 pages of my heritage in a matter of seconds,and Gene Stoddard for giving me numerous photos of my extended family.
Its been a pleasure reconnecting with family, especially Jerry Dolan who shares my enthusiasm in this effort and who gave me some GREAT ideas!,and Mary Vaillancourt who is just such a delight to be around,and lets me invite myself over to hear her stories of my Grandpa Patrick with that Irish lilt to her voice.

Thank you to my beautiful Mommy for schelping all over cemeteries with me, and to Barry Gates for all his help with various research for things I'd never have been able to find on my own.

Thank you all for everything and if I'm missing anything TELL ME!!!! Please remember this is a continuing work in progress.

Love, Pattie xo
*** ~ *** STRANGERS IN THE BOX *** ~ ***
Come, look with me inside this drawer, In this box I've often seen, At the pictures, black and white, Faces proud, still, serene. I wish I knew the people, These strangers in the box, Their names and all their memories Are lost among my socks. I wonder what their lives were like. How did they spend their days? What about their special times? I'll never know their ways. If only someone had taken time To tell who, what, where, when, These faces of my heritage Would come to life again. Could this become the fate Of the pictures we take today? The faces and the memories Someday to be tossed away? Make time to save your pictures, Seize the opportunity when it knocks, Or someday you and yours could be The strangers in the box.

*** ~ *** DEAR ANCESTOR *** ~ ***
Your tombstone stands among the rest; Neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse Entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.
