Hello everyone,
I hope that you are all doing well. Winter being behind us, soon buds will bloom into leaves and flowers for our admiration.

In this newspaper Le Brelan, you can read an article written by Liette Michaud (1703) telling us about the life of her father Lorenzo, a Franco-Ontarian veteran. Very interesting! I invite you all to do like Ms. Liette and send us similar writings to let us know your stories. It is through your articles that we will be able to better develop the genealogy of our large family. Get your pencils ready, go!

On page 5, you will see the notice of meeting for our annual meeting which will be held in Château-Richer, Quebec. Last year, we were on the Kamouraskois land of our ancestor Pierre and, this year, our gathering will take place at the place where the religious marriage of our ancestors Pierre and Marie was celebrated. On the registration form, we indicate the schedule for the day which, in addition to the annual meeting of our organization, includes a visit to the Musée Aux Trois Couvents and a session at the Château-Richer genealogical center. We are expecting you in large numbers and we hope that you will invite a few relatives and friends to accompany you. Did you notice that there is a discount for groups of 3 or more people?

We’ve come a long way since last year’s annual meeting. Here we are again at the end of another fiscal year. I will therefore take this opportunity to remind you that it is also the period for renewing annual contributions. Your membership fee is the association’s main source of income to continue all the services you can benefit from. For all those concerned, can we count on your support? Many thanks in advance!

In closing, I extend an invitation to those among you who want to devote a little time to the advancement of our association by becoming a member of the board of directors. It’s a few hours per month and meetings can be done by ZOOM. Say YES to ensure succession, we need you to continue offering the same services to members.

I wish us a sunny spring filled with happiness. We are expecting you in large numbers at the annual meeting on May 25.

Madelaine Dubé-Michaud, president (1585)
