The Émile Ducharme research fund
Several years ago, l’Association des Charron et
Ducharme inc. initiated a research program in France. Its
objective is to uncover as much information as possible about the
forebears of our ancestor Pierre Charron, born in Meaux, province of
Brie in France. Our members already know that this research program
has produced much more information than was originally hoped for.
The Board of Directors created a research fund for
this very purpose on August 3, 1998. The fund is known as the Émile
Ducharme Fund in honor of our first vice-president. The fund is used
to finance genealogical research, a major objective of the
association, most notably research in France. Research in
France obviously is way beyond our means and professional
competence. An account of the sums collected appears in
every issue of "le Trait d’union".
Members and friends of the Association who wish to
contribute to this fund may make a cheque payable to the order
of the Association des Charron et
Ducharme inc, specyfying that it is a grant to the
Fonds Émile-Ducharme . postal address.
