Just wanted to let you know that my dad, Reggie Paquin, passed away on November 8th, one month shy of his 101st birthday.
Reggie was a great email correspondent when I started learning genealogy with him. He was always patient with his explanations. I took over Le Dictionnaire from him and he continued to be of great assistance to me and to our PAQUIN Assoc. My husband Bert Walsh and I met Reggie and his wife Claire several times for dinners or lunches and he was a witty & gifted story teller.

During the very first Paquin rally held at Deschambault in 1972, Réginald Paquin of Winthrop Boston, was a prominent figure for all english speaking Paquin.
Charles-Henri Paquin was a founding member of the Paquin Families Association Inc., and was its president and editor of “Le Pasquin” newspaper for more than 10 years. He even participated in October 2018 to the unveiling of a plaque on the “Île d’Orléans”as a tribute to our ancestor Nicolas Paquin. His tremendous contribution to the influence of the Paquin families is invaluable. It is with great sadness that we learned of his passing.
Be assured, Réjeanne and the family, of our warmest prayers and thoughts at this time of mourning.
My sincere condolences,
Jean-Marie Paquin for Paquin Family Ancestors

Law 113, now in effect in Quebec since September 16, 2018, allows orphans and children adopted between 1920 and 1970 to know the names of their biological parents. The disclosure is made even if the parents had, during their lifetime, refused a request for reunion and asked to remain anonymous.

The Franco-American annals remind us that in 1937, the French Consul in Boston awarded you, on behalf of the Ministry of National Education of the French Rep decoration of Academy Officer, with the silver palms and the purple ribbon which symbolizes it. This was to be followed later by the Medal of French Recognition.
Father Jacques Paquin was an active member of the Paquin Family Association. He was always present at family reunions. It is with great sadness that we were made aware of his passing.
Our prayers and warm thoughts will accompany the family during this mourning period.
