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

A commemorative plaque, identifying this historical site, was erected in the Sainte-Famille parish on the Île d’Orléans, Québec.




 All the Paquin were invited for the unveilling of the plaque which took  place on September 29, 2018 at the following address :

2111, Chemin Royal
Sainte-Famille, Ile d'Orléans, QC

"If you are reading this you have probably developed an enthusiasm, if not a passion for genealogy. Imagine volunteering in that same field - doing what you love, with people who share the same ardour. You may find yourself in an activity that affords you the opportunity to share ideas and information as well as providing a service to the public. Volunteering does not always mean giving to others - it can also mean giving to yourself. Don’t miss out on the rewards."
