Bonjour Tremblay cousins! There's a new exhibit at the Rendez-vous at Ste. Anne Parish de Detroit this year! We are dedicating a tent to "Our Families, Our Stories." Organizers are looking for people to create tabletop displays about your French Canadian, Metis or Native American family. I am doing one on my Vaillancourt side of my family which will show my connection to Benoit Tremblay, but the main story will be on my other line. Since there are so many Tremblays, it would be great to have the family represented. In this tent we will also have cards on cords for people to write their surnames, and then they can wear the cards during the festival. This will make it pretty easy to connect with cousins. If you are interested in creating a display, private message me and I'll give you more information. The Rendez-vous will be held September 22 and 23, 2018, timed to coincide with French Canadian Heritage Week in Michigan. I am especially interested in displays which would feature the migration of the Tremblays from Quebec to Detroit to the founding of Bay City, Michigan. Thank you!"
I plan on being there the 22nd with info on the TREMBLAY family - Jim.

Did you know that the tallest Union soldier could very well have looked down at the top of President Lincolns’ head? How about that the Drummer Boy of Shiloh was never at that battle, but he was the last Civil War soldier serving in the U.S. Army?
