Important! Please Read!

Please note that I have yet to cite any sources for any of the information I have supplied…which also means that there is a chance that some of it may be incorrect (though that’s the exception, not the rule).

At the moment I am simply trying to input whatever data I have collected from speaking with family members, internet searches, and forum queries into my blog.

Eventually, I am going to create posts listing my sources. I will go person by person and family by family, so that I can be as accurate as possible.

Since research can be tedious and exhausting, there is a possibility that it may take a little while…

Bear with me. I’ll get there…

Ancestry and Genealogy.com’s response to my email

I made a post about getting a cousin’s phone call awhile back (I enjoyed talking to him and I was really grateful for his call also, but it got me to thinking about online privacy issues), and I stated that I was going to email ancestry and genealogy.com to try and have my real name taken off of my messageboard posts.

Welp, here’s what they said…

Oh well, guess I’ll give it a try…although I do think that it shouldn’t be this much of a hassle to alter or delete any of my previous posts.

Twins run in the family…

…too bad I wasn’t informed until an ultrasound confirmed I was carrying more than one baby a year and some odd months ago…

I mean, I knew that I had some twin cousins; I just didn’t know that that meant I had a high chance of conceiving twins, myself.

Apparently, the women on my daddy’s side of the family are so fertile that sometimes they release more than one egg a month…

My Auntie (my daddy’s sister) has a set of fraternal twin boys (living), but I believe she has been pregnant with twins at least two or three times. (I might have to ask her just to be sure, though.) And I remember my Na na telling me something about her twin aunt and uncle…or were they her cousins?

Guess, I have some phone calls to make…

Lazy me…

I know the charts look kind of ugly right now, but I’ll work on fixing their look and add whatever information I’m missing at a later date and time.

So, be patient with me.

I’ll get around to it…eventually.

DuRousseau (Douresseau) Genealogy Website

I was googling different variations of my Na Na’s maiden name when I stumbled across this site.

It has a pretty nice database (complete with family, pedigree, and descendency pages) and its worth checking out (if you also happen to be researching this surname…)
