COMMEMORATIVE PLAQUES

Ever since the Association des Dubé d’Amérique (ADA) was founded, its Board of Directors has paid great attention to matters of remembrance and commemoration. Commemorative plaques remind of the privileged link between certain places and our family’s history. 

In June 1998, when a group of ADA members made a first trip to France, a first plaque was unveiled in our ancestor Mathurin’s birthplace in La Chapelle-Thémer, Vendée. Records witness the deep emotion felt by travellers when the text engraved under the ADA’s coat of arms was read.

In 2000, when the Dubés of America held their first great celebration on Orléans Island, a second commemorative plaque was laid to recall the most significant dates in the married life of Marie Campion and Mathurin Dubé. The plaque was officially unveiled and blessed by Monseigneur Jean-Marie Fortier, the guest of honour at the celebration.

In 2003, a third plaque was laid in the Jardin des Ancêtres (Ancestors’ Garden), near the church in Sainte-Famille, Orléans Island, where Marie and Mathurin were married in 1670. The plaque lists the names of our ancestors and their five children as well as the major dates that marked their long journey. The plaque was laid according to the rules and standards set by the Fondation Lamy, custodian of the Parc des Ancêtres (Ancestors’ Park).
