It seems every so often my wife, myself, or the both of us will get the family tree itch and start looking through old records, pictures or whatever other sources we find; and, since we are on vacation this seemed like a great past time for when it is simply too hot to do anything outside … and so we have started, again.

The number of people are adding up quickly in each or our respective family trees. I believe we will use the online versions available at You can currently visit Terri’s or my respective trees at:

A lot of the information in my family tree is from memory with help from mom (thanks). A few more branches were found with some research based on the starting points we worked out, but unfortunately no one seems to recall much about my father. I have not seen him since I was about two years old, although I do have a picture of us together likely sometime in 1967:

l-r: Joseph Caissie and son Edward Joseph Alexandre Caissie

I also have a generation photo. This picture has four generations including myself from my mother’s side of the family. In the front, I am sitting on my mother’s (Karen Morin) lap. Next to us is my maternal grandmother Winnifred Ferguson nee Homer; and, her mother Gertrude:

Have you traced your family tree? Are you part of our family? Do you know me … or my dad?
