Hello: When you said you didn't know what qualifies as dwarfism, I realized that is an important point. So I inquired on www.google.com for "dwarfism characteristics." It became obvious the man in the photo was one kind of dwarf, those having short legs, and my two first cousins were/are another, as they looked exactly like normal adults except that their entire bodies were both extremely tiny, well under four feet, like Georgianna. As adults they looked like 6-year-olds. There is one kind of dwarfism (like theirs) linked to growth hormone deficiency.
Please tell me where Admoro, QC is, if you know, as I have never heard of it. Otherwise I have someone in QC I can ask. Our Brousseaus moved from Yamaska to Sorel to St. Aimé, QC; and from there to Webster, Mass. Also, what dates were Matilda and Georgianna born? We do not have all the Brousseau branches filled in yet and will be watching for those names. I didn't find them in the lines we already have; but Worcester County is the right area. I appreciate your reply. Please get back to me soon. Kathleen (Brousseau) Martin.
