Our Genealogy Helper for Saint Francois de Madawaska ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Saint Francois de Madawaska (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us an insight into their world.

While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.
