We have a project to install
a plaque in honor of our ancestors and which will be installed in the chapel of the Canadians in the
Saint-Jacques Church in Dieppe, France.
The purpose of this project is to pay tribute to our ancestors Pierre and Jean Labrecque, who left Dieppe
in France circa 1657 and settled on Île d'Orléans in 1659, while continuing their craft as a sailor.
It is a wonderful project. It is a way to not only honor our ancestors who came from Dieppe, but also
to leave an overseas trace of all generations of Labrecque in America.
We have the permission for the installation of a plaque from Father Geoffroy de la Tousche, priest of
the Saint-Jacques Church of Saint Jean-Paul II parish, which includes the municipality of Dieppe.
We had request an estimate of the cost of a plaque with the coat of arms and the agreed-upon text (Marbrerie Rivière, at Dieppe).
