My name is Joseph (Regent) Lamarche (retired). I started researching my ancestors in September/2000, offering help to my cousin's daughter, Christine that had started a secure family web-site at MyFamily.com. So far I've found many new distant cousin that I didn't know were alive and kicking. It's been a lot of enjoyment in writing to some of these new found cousins especially the one from Seattle, Washington Area that was born on the same date as mine. By the way my wife and I will visit with her and her husband this coming summer.
So far I've just about finished my immediate family, I will be uploading that information to our secure web site in the near future, now I must move on to my Dad's family where there are 11 siblings with many descendants. My Dad's three uncles Alfred, Augustin, Hormidas Lamarche left home when they were young men and went to the area of Stanley, Wisconsin in the mid 1880, by mostly walking from town to town.
From our first reunion in 1966,in North Bay, Ontario we've had seven family reunions in,(1)Cochrane, (2)Timmins,(1)Sarnia, (1)Ottawa, Ontario and (1) Angers, Quebec. Angers, Quebec being the site were our family started, five generations ago. Hopefully we'll have this all done for the next reunion in about two years or so. I'll include all the family names that I'm researching shortly.
If you feel that maybe you could be a descendant from our family tree I would be happy to hear from you and exchange information.
