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.
The goal has been achieved. The amount raised is $ 2033.78.
Thank you to all donors.
A plaque will be installed in the chapel of the Canadians in the Saint-Jacques Church in Dieppe, France.
The inauguration will take place on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
However, the plate will be installed as soon as possible.
