Fred Belair Ancestor Page

Fred Belair on his 100th birthday

In 2014, I decided to round up all the blog articles I’d been writing about my paternal grandfather Fred Belair (1889-1991). The linked titles to these articles are placed here on this “ancestor landing page”. (Thanks to Caroline M. Pointer at for suggesting ancestor landing pages.)

  1. Just having found your site I am in awe! We share one ancestor, Olivier Charbonneau (with 35,000 others!) which is what brought me here to begin with. I am an armchair genealogist, doing most of my research right here on my I pad and the Internet, although I have ventured to a few cemeteries in the Ottawa/Russell area and plan to visit many in Quebec this summer.
    My question is, where do you find so many facts and details about your ancestors? I would like to take up your challenge but honestly don't know where to begin. I can name 400 or so ancestors from my tree, and had the pleasure to meet 25 or so near relatives who are no longer with us. But for anyone else, I am not sure to be able to find details like yours! So any advice you wish to share would be heartily embraced!
