Eddy’s daughter found my blog on the Internet and told her dad.
Glad to hear from you.
I have lots of pictures of Laurent in my Picasa site and will send them to you. (We called him Larry or Joe mostly).
I have a copy of the letter from the Squadron Aumonier in French and will send a copy in another email as to how he died and names, etc. of his mates.
My daughter Sharon found your sites and sent me links.
EDDY to my friends instead of Adelard.
Eddy was all excited and so was I.
We are cousins, well 5th cousins… but cousins anyway.
When I posted my article on Laurent Dubois, I searched for his ancestors because his mother maiden name was Sauvé just like my mother’s.
All Sauvés are descendants of Pierre Sauvé and Marie Michel Michaud. You see, my other passion is genealogy, so it was not hard connecting with Eddy and Laurent.
Here are the pictures Eddy sent me of Laurent. He told me they called him Larry and I could post them on my blog.
