Welcome to our New Organization

The initial meeting to organize a family organization comprising of the interrelated Gaspard, Picard and Laviolette families was held on May 4, 2002 in Kaplan, La. USA.   Another meeting is being planned for the near future.  A family reunion is already being planned for Saturday April 12, 2003 at the Magdelan Place, Abbeville, La. USA.  All this as a prelude to possibly having some sort of reunion in Nova Scotia in 2004.

Check out the GPL Newsletter "La Gazette" for detailed news on the reunion on April 12.

This planners and organizers of this family organization have high hopes that members can be recruited from the three families, though not necessarily with a surname of Gaspard, Picard or Laviolette, as long as you have a blood line going back to any generation of any of these families.  It has long been recognized that all three families are very interrelated through marriages.

The officer’s page contains names and addresses of the organizers, though not necessarily the officers.  The officers will be elected at the formal organizational meeting in the future.  For the time being please contact any of the listed volunteers that are listed.   They are giving of their time and effort to make this Family Association happen.

This new association will be charted as a non-profit corporation and will apply for tax free status as many other family organizations have done.
