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.
