Old letter I found

Well I found this old letter in my basement that held my baptism records. This was over 50 years ago and I was wondering where we lived as a family back then. So today I decided to look a little harder at it and see what I find.

Letter found

first, the street I was born at is no more – I am quite sure it was renamed to Dleur De Lis Drive in New Orleans. The main reason is it is would make consist with “A” and “B” street.

Also it is about 5 miles from where the church I was baptized. It must of not been that much of a drive (15 minutes on google earth now). Interesting that I have never heard about this church before this.

the church

The church is still there – and it looks very nice from the outside.

latest photo of where house was

The house does not exist anymore – perhaps it was destroyed during Katrina (it is very close to lake Pontchartrain).

From this image on google maps it looks like the entire area had damage from the storm.

Also it only costs 5 Cents to send a letter back them.
