Commemorative panel unveiling at Bains-sur-Oust, Brittany

On Septembre 15, the Association has unveiled a panel to commemorate Michel Saindon's baptism in Bains-sur-Oust, Brittany. Seventeen persons of the Association attended the unveiling ceremony.

In close collaboration with the Oust and Vilaine County Genealogy Club, the Association had developed a three days program for members that could be added to a larger journey that the participants had planned themselves.
A great success.
