On the trail of your ancestors in Normandy South Eure

From Rouen to the port of Dieppe where Samuel de Champlain left, from the landing beaches to Montigny-sur-Avre where François de Montmorency-laval, the first bishop of Quebec, was born, Normandy has many links with Quebec.

In the 17th alonee siècle, c’est presque un millier de Normands qui ont traversé l’Atlantique, dont Paul Bertrand Saint-Arnaud dont la famille compte plus de 25 000 descendants en Amérique du Nord. Vous êtes peut-être l’un d’eux !
