This morning I first found marriage records for a member of the AFC mailing list who was at a brick wall not knowing who the names of her ggreatgrandmother. She can now move forward. Christmas miracle #1.
Then I found a marriage record for another individual who had contacted me for help because he had been told that his grandfather was not born in the city he had always been told and believed he had. The marriage record clearly states his place of birth as Lynn, Massachusetts but the spelling of his name was incorrect in the record. His surname was Meunier - the clerk spelled it Munier - so now that we know this, the individual will go once more to request his grandfather's birth certificate. He should have no difficulty obtaining one now. Christmas miracle #2.
Lastly, I found the marriage record of one of my father's sisters that I have searched for years and could not find it. Instead of marrying by the name of Genevieve LeBlanc, she gave her name as Jennie White. She and John Miller married in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Strange though that she gave the name of her father as Daniel rather than Damien and she gave the name of her mother as Delia Durant. First of all, this last name was Odille Doiron - secondly Odille was not really her mother as her birth mother died when she was born. Her birth mother was Genevieve Arsenault and she had been named after her but not ever having known her, and Odille being the only mother she knew, I'm sure that is why she listed her as mother. Christmas miracle #3.
So three Christmas miracles came my way today. Two for people I was helping and one for my family research. Three wonderful blessings at Christmas from a more than wonderful Child laying in a manger. I hope you had at least one Christmas miracle today!
