I’ve been doing quite a bit of genealogical research lately, trying to find out more about my family — how far we go back in the U.S. and where we come from (note to grammar police here: I know).
I’ve been able to trace one side of my family back to France and Quebec in the 15 and 1600s. I’m still digging for more information, but so far (among others, of course) I’ve located Gagnes and Laviolettes. Finding these two names left me with only one question: Is there a genetic component to ice skating? If so, it skipped me.
