Melanson Family Reunion

Official Website of the Melanson Family Reunion 2004. The Melanson reunion was August 2-5. It included, on Tuesday, the Official Opening Ceremony of the Melanson Settlement National Historic Site.

I'm descended from both Charles (through his daughter Elisabeth, who married Michel Bourg/Bourque) and Pierre Melanson (through his son Pierre's daughter Elisabeth, who married Ambroise Bourg/Bourque). I look forward to visiting the Melanson Settlement National Historic Site next week. The museum at Fort Anne National Historic Site includes some of the artifacts from the Melanson excavation--there's no experience quite like looking at a knife and fork that may have been used by an ancestor of yours 300 years ago.
