In Reply to: Looking for Eugene Racicot, by Lorraine Phillips of 401

I am prossibly the Eugene Racicot for whom you are looking. The references check with some minor variations.

My name is Eugene Alphonse Racicot, born Toronto 6 Oct. 1928, in Toronto Ontario Canada. My father's name was Alphonse Joseph Gregery Immanuel Racicot and my mother was Margaret Elizabeth Racicot (ne Stuart). He was known in the family as 'Phonse.

Alphose had a brother and two sisters. I knew one sister as Aunt Ida. She was married to Eleric LeGrandeur. I'm not sure of spelling here, and with other names, becuse I don't remember ever seeing them in writing. They lived on Empire Ave in Toronto. The other sister was Aunt Lulu. She had consumption and lived at the Sanitarium in Toronto, Ont. The brother's name was Frederic. I never knew him. He ws supposed to have had some big fight with his family and left home at sixteen. My mother said that they thought that they some times would see him but that he did not do well. Grampa Racicot was supposed to have been married twice. Frederic and Lulu where from that marriage; Alphose and Ida from the second

My Father's Father's name was Isaih. Again I don't know the spelling. I remember that Grama was blind with cataracs.

Lulu had no children. I don't know about Frederic.

Alphonse and Margaret had only one child. There is a family story that the birth was dificult and that there were twins. Only one survived, me.

Ida had several children. The names I remember are Fredy, Marie, Rosetta Lorrain and Joe, but I think that there was another sister. Almost all of them had flaming red hair.

If I'm that one for whom you are looking I hope that you can tell me more and correct the errors I have

I've tried to trace the family back but I found that it was difficult to do since the history lies in Quebec. My highschool French isn;t good enough. Most of the records are in Church documents. The Geneology sites were of sme interest but they tended to be for the part of the Family that was in the US. I lost one good oportunity. In Centenial year I received a letter from a small town on the St Lawrence. They were trying to trace the foundling settlers of their town which dates bace to the sixteenth century. But I lost the letter, Careless eh!
