I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I'd be happy to help out anyone doing Manitoba research in any way I can. That includes taking photographs of tombstones, and doing record lookups. I also have a list of books I can do lookups in!
Lianne was born on 7 May 1988, at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She is the daughter of Gil Lavoie and Janice Jackson. She was given her middle names for each of her grandmothers: Elizabeth from Joyce Elizabeth Angus, and Marguerite from Clemence Wilhelmina Marguerite Richard. She grew up in a house in Transcona with her parents and younger sister, Stephanie.
From kindergarden to grade 5, Lianne attended Westview School. At a young age, she started swimming and piano lessons. She no longer takes classes for either of them, but continues to practice them on her own to this day.
The summer before grade 5 (1998), Lianne spent her first week at Camp Arnes, a bible camp north of Gimli. There, she became a Christian, and she went to camp every year for 8 years. Though she still thinks back fondly on her days at Camp Arnes, she converted to Paganism shortly after graduating from high school; this has led to some interesting conversations with past camp councellors.
From grade 6 to 8, she attended John W. Gunn Middle School. In grade 7, she started tae kwon do classes at the Tae Ryong Park Academy, which she would continue for 3 years.
Lianne took grades 9 to 12 at Transcona Collegiate Institute, where she graduated with honours in 2006. In grade 11, she quit tae kwon do (having reached the level of red belt) in order to take dance classes at Winnipeg Dance Force. She took jazz and hip hop classes there for 4 years.
On 9 September 2006, Lianne started dating her high school friend, Jonathon Laudinsky.
From 2006 to 2010, Lianne studied at the University of Manitoba, where she earned her Bachelor of Computer Science with a minor in philosophy. In her third year of university, she quit her dance classes, and took up belly dancing at the university. She stayed in that class until finishing university, when she switched to taking ballroom dancing with Jonathon.
A few months after finishing university, on 1 April 2011, Lianne and Jonathon moved in together, in an apartment in St. Boniface, the French neighbourhood of the city. On 25 May 2012, they became officially engaged. They got married on 14 September 2013 at Oxford Heights Community Club in Transcona.
Lianne recently returned to school, going through her first ever career change very early in life. She is studying Library and Information Technology at Red River College, working towards becoming a library technician (possibly a school librarian). She hopes to one day help connect reluctant young readers to the books they'll love.
She has been working on her family tree on and off since 2005, when she was assigned a family tree project in grade 11 history class. She blogs about her research at Stories of a Canadian Family.
This is a list of other WikiTreers with whom I share common ancestry. It's so exciting to find these connections! If I've missed you, let me know!
I'm not one to go looking for famous relatives, but a few of them have popped up, so I'm gonna go ahead and flaunt them. The following famous people are my distant relatives.
I am currently researching the following potential line of descent from Charlemagne to make sure all the links are solid. I'll be starting from the bottom and working upward.
The line from Charlemagne to Philippe II is apparently widely agreed upon. I don't have the research experience to do much here, but I plan to improve the WikiTree profiles where I can.
The evidence for this connection is laid out in this journal. I plan to look over it and improve the WikiTree profiles.
This portion is within Canada, and is probably quite reliable. I plan to go over it and doublecheck the records for each parent-child connection.
It may seem morbid, but in the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up having to be deleted. While I fully intend to be around to manage all my profiles for the next 80 years or so, in the event of my sudden death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following slightly-active WikiTreers in my family, whether or not they are currently on the trusted lists:
I am also the sole profile manager of a large number of profiles in the royal family (mainly Queen Victoria and her descendants). The living ones are private only because WikiTree requires it; they contain only information easily available on the web. They can be passed off to any interested WikiTreer.

I emailed you several weeks ago about joining the MN Cemetery project. Please let me know if I can be a part of this. Thank you

Today I received notification re: “De Champlain-4 and Champlain-10 appear to represent the same person because: duplicates”.
You created Champlain-10 on 28 Oct 2014. De Champlain was created on 18 Sep 2016. Do you have interest in performing the merge, and perhaps resuming management of his profile?
