Treasure Chest Thursday: A Celebration of Life - Part I

Treasure Chest Thursday is a daily blogging prompt from GeneaBloggers - the genealogy community's resource for blogging.

This week for Treasure Chest Thursday I am celebrating the life of my mother by presenting a few pages from her baby book.

Born on 11 March, 1944 in Chelmsford, MA, Pauline Gail Maille was the daughter of Paul Maille (Cuthbert, Rose Therrien) and Rita Moran (John, Yvonne Ferron). She married my father, Jerome Charles Robillard (Joseph, Louise Esther Wright) on 13 Nov., 1965, in Lowell. Next Friday, November 5th, will mark the 28th anniversary of her death.

  2. I loved this book Michelle. First, your mother and I are the same age, and I was surprised to see some Pooles listed in the gift section. Nice tribute. Loved the genealogy as well!
