Saturday Night Genealogy Fun

Randy Seaver has come up with another interesting Saturday night genealogy quest. This one is on birth order and I thought I would give it a try.

Pam Wozniak Taylor, (1955-), first child, first daughter of Norbert and Arlene (Guinee)Wozniak (they had three daughters)

Arlene Marie Guinee, (1931-1998), first child, first daughter of Bert and Lucille (Hanaway) Guinee (they had 2 daughters and 2 sons)

Lucille May Hanaway, (1912-1998), sixth child, third daughter of Marion Albert and Eva (Deno) Hanaway (they had 4 daughters and 4 sons)

Eva Belle Deno, (1881-1956), only child of Theophile and Belle (Boudreau) Deno

Belle Boudreau, (1860-1946), fourth child, third daughter of Luc and Aurelie (Landry) Boudreau (they had 3 sons and 8 daughters)

Aurelie Landry, (1830-1917), third child, first daughter of Jean Baptiste and Elisabeth (Letourneau) Landry (they had six sons and four daughters)

Elisabeth Letourneau (1809-?), third child, second daughter of Amable and Elizabeth Isabelle (Bissonnet) Letourneau (they had one son and two daughters)

Thank you Randy, this was great!

The Family

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck

Genealogy Pox, author unknown


SYMPTOMS: Continual complaint as to need for names, dates and places. Patient has a blank expressions, sometimes deaf to spouse and children. Has no taste for work of any kind, except feverishly looking through records at libraries and courthouses.
Has a compulsion to write letters. Swears at mailman when he doesn't leave mail. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote desolate country areas. Makes secret night calls and hides phone bills from spouse. Mumbles to self. Has strange, faraway look in eyes.


TREATMENT: Medication is useless. This disease is not fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner in the house where he/she can be alone.

REMARKS: The unusual nature of this disease is that the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!
