Project Pioneer Planning Meeting For April Canceled
While the Ste. Genevieve Project Pioneer meeting of April 18 is canceled due to the coronoviras shutdown, members of the French Michaud and Placit families and the German Oberle and Operle families are urged to continue gathering family information and photos and submit them to the committee.
Contact Barbara Basler Peterson at 573-883-3134 for details.
Project Pioneer organizers are hopeful meetings can continue on the second Saturday of May through July.
Information is especially needed on the descendants of Michael Placet and Marie Louise Tessier Levigne, who had 11 children who married into the Roussin, Bequette, Langelier, Duclos de Celle, Colman, Deguire dit LaRose, Boyer and Aubuchon families.
Also needed are descendants of the Johann Oberle and Andrew Eugene Operle families.
The Project Pioneer families are recognized each year during Jour de Fete.
