Calling all Bergeron dit Damboise and Godins. Hear ye, hear ye ,hear ye, grin.
Ok I am sort of hoping this will reach many folks who have Bergeron,Damboise,or Godin,Bellefontaine ,or anyone descendent from Barthelemy Bergeron dit Damboise and Genevieve Serreau dit St Aubin, or descendants of Gabriel Godin dit Chatillon and Andree Angelique Jeanne (Jasne). As you know these two families were in Riviere Saint Jean New Brunswick and some of their families were masacred .Anyway Fredericton is holding a commemoration of the anniversary of this episode, and my Bergeron group that I belong too have organized a Bergeron Reunion for the same period, We are having it July 18 and 19th 2009 ,it is going to be held at Wilmot Park, which is across from the old Acadian Church and cemetery location. We are inviting the Godins also since they intermarried with our Bergeron lines. Now the Societe Historique Riviere Saint Jean has asked for an appropriate head count on how many will be attending. So if any of you are coming down for the CMA2009, and would like to add this event to your schedule please email me at put Bergeron Reunion in your subject line, I think this will be a fun event and a place to meet new cousins. Here is the letter regarding the SHRSJ request.
Hello CousinsI attempted to send this message this morning but it appears that itdidn't go through!I have been asked by the SHRSJ to come up with a "head count" of thepeople who are planning to attend the Reunion/ Commemoration that isbeing planned for the summer of 2009 in Fredericton. What they require is a total by family. So if there is a family of six it would belisted as two adults and four children. Any child over the age of 16would be considered an adult. Please send your reply to me directly and then I will tabulate the results andforward it to SHRSJ as soon as possible. PLEASE COMPLETE THIS REQUESTBY NEXT WEEKEND JUNE 28 TH.ThanksCousin Larry--~--~---------~--~
Now if you decide to come and cannot reply by the 28th contact either Larry or me just the same to let us know, and remember if something happens that you cannot make it, you can always cancel. I hope to meet many of you there. July 2009 is only a year away, so it would be time to make accomodations soon.
Have a great day
