We have started adding St. Ann's early church records
Special thanks to Joan, Eileen and Eleanor for all their hard work
in transcribing and proof-reading.
And a huge thank you to Father Jonathan Nweke for letting us in to photograph the records.
The records were digitally photographed Summer 2010 by myself and my brother Mike, and
then handed over to the girls for transcribing. Then back to me to format for the
web and to print out and send back to the church.
updated this page in a while - but that doesn't mean things
haven't been added to the site.
We now have 600+ obituaries
Peggy Feltmate is transcribing her aunt's diary from 1930s-1960s
Check it out, it's under Misc items, a section which is growing
fast and becoming quite interesting.
We've had lots of pictures added to the gallerys, thanks to Sandra Perro,
Fred Myers, Perle Connolly to mention a few.

WORLD ACADIAN CONGRESS 2004
2004 CONGRES MONDIAL ACADIEN
Sunday December 3, 2000
The next WORLD ACADIAN CONGRESS will take place in Nova Scotia on 30 July to 15 August 2004. This will be the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Acadians in Nova Scotia. During that two week period, there will be family reunions held from Yarmouth to Sydney. Most of families here today are decendants or have some connection to the PELLERIN's , and for that reason, the PELLERIN FAMILY REUNION will be held at that time in Larry's River. Please contact M Perle (Levangie) Connolly or Lloyd Boucher within the next two weeks, so we can foward this to the provincial committee. Anyone can have a reunion, but they must be registered. As well, Pellerin's or related members should confirm that they wish to host their reunion.
We're undergoing a
facelift, I hope to have it completed soon, please
