What would you like to know? I haven't seen a direct connection between my Hache, Hache-Gallant lines yet but many were born or lived in Beaubassin, l'Acadie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaubassin This was a major missionary town for the MicMac.
Hi Aline - I saw your comment about not talking genealogy. Most of us have known each other for a while, so we may get off subject, but if someone such as yourself wants to ask for help or opinions please just speak up. For me, I haven't been around much, exploring a new (to me) website. But I see you are from Louisiana. Do you have any ancestors or relatives who fought at Gettysburg? I work across the street from where the "Tigers" fought.
Don't worry about what they were talking about on that discussion you commented on. It was a tempest in a teapot and not worth watching the water boil.
Welcome back to doing research! A lot has changed over the years, which is a good thing as there's a lot more available for us at our fingertips.
If you came into the chat tonight and was confused, on Wednesday and Saturday nights (around 6 on the west coast and 9 east coast) Rita has a trivia quiz. It's really quiet tonight. Everyone is rushing around doing things for the holidays. I know that JD Fuller is interested in talking to you about a name he has on his tree.
Hope to see you around and if you come by, just say "hi" to us and things will go on from there. Hopefully we'll be able to help you with your research.
I noticed that you posted a couple of comments to an old thread about discussions here. There are definitely some quieter times of the day and week here. And right now with it being the holidays it's even quieter than usual. Saturday afternoons are usually more lively. If there is something specific you'd like help with, speak up. Some of us are just waiting to jump at the chance to help out. If nothing's happening at the time you come in, just wait. It's sort of like a coffee shop. Someone will pop in shortly. Looking forward to seeing you in the chat room.
