My Writings on the Audet-Lapointe

This 250-page book entitled My Writings on the Audet-Lapointes brings together, in 36 detailed articles, everything that our family historian Guy Saint-Hilaire has already written in various reviews about our Audet-Lapointe ancestors.

The book is now also available in English.

The ancestral land of the Audet-Lapointes on Île d'Orléans from 1667 to 2019

Now available in English.

In this new publication, the official launch of which took place during the ADNAL's annual gathering on August 24, 2019 in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, QC, the author, Guy Saint-Hilaire, reviews the history to the present day of the land that the ancestor Nicolas was granted to Île d'Orléans in 1667, which four consecutive generations of Audet-Lapointe inhabited, and which has changed a lot over the past 350 years. It shows what precise places today this land corresponds to, explains how its dismemberment occurred in the middle of the 18th century, and identifies all the owners who have succeeded one another until now on its different components, by describing how they have acquired and insinuated the intentions that many of them had when they obtained them. Those interested in knowing what remains of the contribution of their ancestor Nicolas will perhaps find some answers.

This publication is available, in French and in English, at the ADNAL's Administrative Centre (Phone: 450-467-9453, or adnal@videotron.ca) at a cost of $15 plus shipping, if applicable.
