We would like to convey our most sincere appreciation to René Roger, born in
1903 at Hull, Qc. His father Eudore was born in
St-Apollinaire, near Québec
City. We met René in 1969
and he provided us with most significant information on the Roger Family
genealogy. We succeeded to branch our familial antecedents to his voluminous
data. That was indeed a most precious gift… Thank you, René…. and may God
bless. It is noteworthy that the Comité de toponymie of Gatineau city retained his name in the
framework of the street name program for the following reasons: « René
Roger (1903-1992) was very implicated in his community. In 1933, he was a
founding member of the Chambre de Commerce des Jeunes de Hull; he was President
in 1937-1938. Mr. Roger was also “commissaire” for the Hull Schools during six
years (1938-1948). In 1922, he started a 43 year career with the Ville de Hull
as clerk at the Service des estimations. He went up the ladder and became
Deputy Clerk and Secretary of the Division des estimations from 1932 to 1950.
He then became Director of the Service des estimations from 1950 to 1965. »
(Translation) Congratulations René!
We wish to express our appreciation as well to Normand Roger who lives
presently in the Montréal region. He provided us with most interesting and
important information on the Roger Family genealogy such as the stay of Gabriel
II in Acadie and the deportation of his daughter and grand-children to La Rochelle, France. Normand enabled us as well
to validate our genealogy information against his data concerning accuracy of
dates and spelling of names. Thank you, indeed, Normand…
