Bio

I BEEN DOING GENEALOGY FOR 22 YEARS or more it's a daily thing for me.;I have volunteer in the Library worked with some wonderful Geneologists ,collect data from the cemeteries and court houses to help with publishications books . I have all of Lafourche,Terrebonne,Assumption and surrounding areas and working on spreading furthur. The most Important thing I learn about family History is OBITS! After 1980 this is where your big connection is because there are no records in book of the generations of us after that time . Thanks to the Priests of the time before us to say we "NEED TO RECORD HISTORY "and start marking down Births,Deaths,Marriages, and that is Father Donald Hebert I thank him for all his work .
EVERYONE HAS AN ADDICTION !!!!!!!!!! THIS IS MINE

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.
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.
=====================================================
In The Shade of the Family Tree

All the names on these pages,
it's hard to believe,
that hundreds of people
are related to me.

Grandmas and Grandpas,
Uncles and Aunts,
Cousins, more cousins
Me? Stop? No, I can't!

Germany, Canada,
Scotland, and France
All came together
Just out of chance.

To think that I started
with just a blank sheet.
Now put end to end,
the tree measures in feet!

Volumes of info
gathered up from the past,
saved acid free
'cause I want it to last.

It's possible that
there have been some mistakes
but all of these names,
why bother to fake?

I'm hoping some day
some ambitious descendant
will cherish my volumes
so glad that I've done it.

I can't help but think that
if everyone did this
we'd find, none too soon,
we have very few differences.

Please, listen to me
don't leave it to fate.
Gather much from your elders
before it's too late.

Pictures

a flash of golden memories,
from the womb to the tomb,
reflections past to present

preserved for future generations
so as not to be forgotten,
recorded imagery of a time,
stored away for another day,
to be discovered and reminisced

those who knew not the subject
play the game of discovery
to see who had their name,
to study the history,
from whence they came

a visual chronology of family fame,
your own, one day the same,
a loving vision into the past,
maybe some things do last
