Family Reunions



Every Fall since 1995, the World Association of Laporte's and St-Georges has held a family reunion.
Our reunions bring together "cousins" from across North America who share a common interest in our ancestry.  Participants have the opportunity to meet with Board members and to examine and purchase the Association's publications, to consult its computerized data bank and to visit its family archive exhibition.  Local guided tours of historical sites give our cousins the opportunity to learn about our past while exploring our beautiful province of Quebec.
Each year we choose a site in a region of Quebec with a connection to our original Laporte/Ste-Georges ancestors.  Our meetings have been held in:


Joliette.  September 23, 1995

Boucherville.  October 5, 1996

Bromptonville (Sherbrooke region) and the Beauvoir Shrine founded by Fr. J.A. Laporte.  September 13,1997
