Inscription to "Origine" register
This register managed by the Quebec Federation of Genealogy Societies and the French Genealogy Society keep up to date the list of the family origins of the pioneers of ancient Québec (1621-1865).
Saint-Méen Chapel renovation
We had the great pleasure of visiting the Chapel in 2018, during the unveiling of the commemorative plaque at Bains-sue-Oust, because the Genealogy Club of Oust and Vilaine Counties had organized there "Cousinades Saindon", a meeting of Saindons descendants of Bains. We were there.

An invitation to St-Dons, Sandons, Sindons and others...
During research on the origins of SAINDONS, the Association has sometimes found that the spelling of the name had undergone changes over the years: the most frequent being St-Don, Sindon and Sandon among others. These changes are more frequent in the United States where many Saindons from Quebec emigrated towards the end of the 19th century.
A new commemorative panel at the ancestral house in Cacouna
A new commemorative panel has been installed recently at the ancestral house of Michel Saindon in Cacouna*. It indicates that
Michel was baptized on December 2, 1715, at Bains-sur-Oust, Brittany.
Thereby, it shows the real year of birth of the ancestor. Formerly, it was believed that he was born in 1717 as indicated on a first plaque installed in 1995.
In 2018, a commmemorative panel was installed at Bains-sur-Oust in Brittany desscribing the life of Michel in North America after he left Brittany.
* Paid by a special fund raising campaign of members last Spring.
