Welcome to the ENGLISH site

Saindon deceased in wars

In memory of the allied forces invading Normandy, go to this site  which pays tribute to 

grand rassemblement 2015

"Deconfinement" of the Association !

"Misfortune may bring improvement ..."

As in many other areas, 

the Covid challenges our usual way of proceeding and encourages us to innovate ... 

Here is what is to come to continue the role of the Assocaiton which is to bring together and promote exchanges between Michel Saindon's descendants: did you know that there are more than 7,500 descendants in North America?. 

  • Of course
we had to cancel the activities that were to take place this year because of government restrictions : a letter from the President was sent to all members.

  • A new plaque in Cacouna
highlighting Michel's baptism in Bains-sur-Oust will be installed as soon as possible (August 2020). We have raised the necessary funds thanks to the generosity of sponsors.

  • An index as well as all the Association's newsletters published since 1995
are now available in the members only section.

  • Rémi Saindon, secretary of the Association, will write
an historical capsule from these newsletters on this site and on the Saindons site on Facebook.

  • The next issue of "La Lignée Saindon" will be published in October 2020.
In the meantime, an electronic newsletter will be sent to members.

  • The Board of Administrator will meet at the end of June to plan future activities that will be published here.
Your comments are welcome by sending a message to assosaindon@hotmail.com.
