Norm Deragon, Speaker
Spring Membership Meeting April 25, 2021
Plan to attend our Spring Membership meeting slated for Sunday, April 25, 2021, at 1:00 PM. This will be held via Zoom. See below for sign in information.
Our speaker will be Norm Deragon who will speak on the Carignan-Salieres Regiment Soldier in the early part of the 17th Century. If you have been able to trace your family back that far, you probably have found connections to the Carignan-Salieres Regiment soldier. Surnames associated with the Regiment will be shared– perhaps your family! Norm Deragon is the President of the American-French Genealogical Society in Woonsocket, R.I. He has been involved in French Canadian genealogical research since 1979. In his capacity as President of the 1,000-member non-profit society, he helps manage the Society’s Franco-American Heritage Center and its many members’ programs and services. The Center houses one of the largest collections of French Canadian research holdings outside of Canada.
