Paradis Ancestors

Happy New Year everyone!

I just have to tell the world about my newest and most exciting information I found of my ancestors. Well exciting for me anyways.

I knew my Great Great Grandmother Malvina Paradis LaRue, and I even knew her parents names, John and Orilla Paradis. I also knew they came from Quebec Canada. What I didn't know is where they lived in Quebec. I haven't researched in quite a long time. I buckled down and with the right search at Ancestry.com I found them in 1871 Canadian Census, Montmagny Quebec, St François de la Rivière Du Sud district. I didn't have such good luck finding them later, but I will just keep trying. It's really a good feeling learning about your family history. Any of my family who reads this can contact me and I will gladly share.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 2014 year and hopefully I will find more news to post.

All Smiles,

Karen
