I'm trying to trace my mother's father's lineage and I'm not sure where to start. All I know is my great grandparents names (Theodore Houle and Josephine LaClair) I don't have any birthdates or marriage dates. Their children's names are:
Rene (just died a few years ago at the age of 95) Germaine (still alive w/ alzeihmers - I think she's about 95 now) Wilbert (my grandfather - born 7/01/1908, died 05/08/1995) Lionele (Pido, nickname) Channel Arthur (never married) Juliette Edward Alcid Barbara (adopted)
They lived in Methuen, Massachusetts.
I believe Josephine LaClair was from upstate Vermont before she married Theodore.
My grandfather, Wilbert, married Yvonne Dumais and they had 4 children: Robert, Ann Marie, Jeanne and Pauline (my mom).
Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.
