Question about Henry Bourgeois

74 views
My father is Wayne Gerard Molaison whom is said to be the grandchild of Henry and Henrietta Bourgeois. He has also been burried in their tomb in Lafourche Parish(Thibodaux Louisiana) I can not find any legal documentation on my father's birth which was July 6 1961 in New Orleans Louisiana I am told. His parents(my grandparents) are said to be Joseph Alphonse Molaison and Eula Mae Bourgeois Molaison,but I keep finding conflicting stories which makes me feel that something is a miss. I just want to know who my father really was and who I am. I don't know our ethnicity  or do I even know who my real family is. My father has a sister Carol Ann Molaison Kovar that I truly believe is not of blood because her and her children do not resemble my father or my siblings and I. Can y'all help me figure out what's going on with my family secrets? Thank you for your time and God Bless!

Dear Megan,

    Here is an obituary extract for your father, in case you have not looked at it recently.

 "United States, GenealogyBank Obituaries, 1980-2014," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKG5-LSX5 : accessed 7 October 2019), Wayne Molaison in entry for Joseph "J A" Molaison, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States, 03 Apr 2011; from "Recent Newspaper Obituaries (1977 - Today)," database, GenealogyBank.com(http://www.genealogybank.com : 2014); citing Times-Picayune, The, born-digital text.

  Two ideas for you to pursue:  1)  Have you traced the other Molaison family members, to see if step-  or adoption-relationships show up?   2)   Are any of your cousins (Kovar or others) interested in genealogy?  Maybe one could give you information, especially if that cousin is older than you and may remember more of the older relatives. 

   Genealogy is such a puzzle.  I hope you find information that gives you peace.  Good luck. -NGP
