A few days into my Canadiana dive, and I’ve already found something. It’s not a big something — in fact, it’s somewhat small and more anecdotal than anything — but it’s something more than nothing.
That second paragraph, after the “Modern Shediac” title? Simon à Pierrote Leblanc was my 1st cousin, 7 times removed. So to be clear, I wasn’t exaggerating when I said this was a small anecdotal find 😉 But still, to read something something like this, a published work that establishes my extended family in an area hundreds of years ago — I feel like this is the first step in what will eventually become an important process.
With that said, there’s SO MUCH INFORMATION!! I feel like I’m drowning in trying to wrap my head around how much is there. It’s amazingly fun 🙂
