I love to stumble across genealogical records that contain photographs. The other day, I stumbled across something called seaman’s protection certificates from 1916 to 1940. These were passports that seamen used as proof of citizenship. They contain dates of birth, addresses and photographs!
The collection is on Ancestry. Just for fun, I pulled photos of seamen born in Louisiana with the last name Templet.
Here’s Henry Templet. born Oct. 23, 1900, in Lafourche Parish. He was a chauffeur looking to board the S.S. Hancock County.
Here’s Maxime Templet, born Aug. 15, 1904, in Napoleonville. His father was Emile Templet. Maxime had a tattoo on his arm and wanted to leave his studies to board the S.S. Warwick.
Here’s Adam L. Templet, born June 8, 1905, in Plattenville to Jules Templet. Adam had a scar on one of his fingers.
