From to president Alain Michaud :

Dear members,
Michauds’ members of our Association, are part of a large family, and we rely on your support in order to offer you a new edition of our bulletin as Spring is just around the corner, hoping that Winter has not been too hard on you.

Once more, in this Brelan’s edition, you will discover various information on the genealogy of our common ancestor’s descendants. This edition also contains a reminder of two major battles, the first one ending a little more than 100 years ago.

Some 650,000 Canadians served during the First World War. Canadian casualties during the 1914-1918 battles were 67,000 deaths and 173,000 wounded. To obtain a good look at those casualties, one must compare them to the 7,000,000 total population of Canada at the beginning of the conflict.

In the Second World War, 1,100,000 Canadians were enrolled in one of the three armed forces with the Allies for the six years of this war (1939-1945). Even if the amount of casualties was less than during the previous war, 45,000 Canadians died and 54,000 were wounded, this major conflict was the most deadly of the History with more than 60 millions leaving their life, thus 2.5% of the total world population.

Evidently, among those braves, some Pierre Michaud’s descendants were involved. If some volunteered to enroll, even more of them men and women participated to the war support back home.

Talking about Pierre Michaud, with great pleasure, we invite you to visit the village where he spent the last years of his life. He then owned a fourth land from 1695 up to his death in 1702. His wife Marie Ancelin died 25 years later in Saint-Louis of Kamouraska.

Our annual meeting will take place on June 13th, 2020 in the charming village of Kamouraska. It was in 2006 that Association des familles Michaud held its general assembly in Kamouraska. What a great occasion to meet the area’s Michaud.

We have prepared a whole day of activities that will please each and every one of you. Meeting members, old and new; attending a conference, annual general assembly, and participating in guided historic visits. It will also be the occasion to experience the new road of Michauds’ historic sites created by Parcours Fil rouge Inc. a non profit organism supported by Tourisme Kamouraska and a large number of local partners and family associations, such as ours.

I have the privilege to observe all the efforts members of the administrative council give for the organisation of the annual meeting of our wonderful association. Please honour them with your presence!

After more than 33 years, AFMI continues existing on account of its members who, year after year, renew their subscription on March 31st. Do not wait any longer to renew your membership to make sure to hold in your hands the next edition of our Brelan, and benefit of the numerous advantages of being member of our dynamic family association.
