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…

Yvan Roger
