Hello Sheila,
I am an Albert cousin who can indeed help you with your quest.

Your great-grandmother was Elizabeth Heloise Albert daughter of Henri Albert and Marie Anne Roquebrune. She was born in Ottawa on September 20th 1887. She was baptised at St. Jean Baptiste, Ottawa on October 2, 1887 with sponsors Israel Aubin and Elizabeth Roque.

She married Jean/Johnny Blais at St. Jean Baptiste, Ottawa, Ontario on May 12, 1907.

On June 12, 1907, Jean (Johny) Blais, son of Israel Blais and Marguerite Leahy of St Francois d'Assise parish, Ottawa married Heloise Albert, daughter of Henry Albert and Marie Anne Roquebrune. Witnesses were Israel Blais and Henri Albert.

I have 8 children so far for Johnny Blais and Elizabeth Albert. Unfortunately they were not doing well on having them live very long.

I have the baptismals for the first 7 Blais kids.

Henri Albert and Marie Anne Roquebrune had 15 kids. Elizabeth was #8. I also have the siblings and families of both Henri Albert and Marie Ann Roquebrune. I will share them.

I would be interested in hearing from you so that I may add you to my tree. Would you send me the birthdates for Lawrence and Rita Blais?

I do not have death dates for Johnny Blais or Elizabeth Albert. The Ontario death index goes up to 1932 and neither are dead yet. Sorry about that.

Hope to hear from you,
