L'association des Blais d'Amérique

Historical Background


The Association obtained its letters patent on October 15, 1999, less than a year following the proposal of a Blais meeting (November 1998) and less than five months after the idea of creating an association (May 1999).

Members

Any descendant, direct or through marriage, of the pioneer ancestor Pierre Blais or any other person interested carrying on the objectives of the Association, can become a member.

Partners

The Association des Blais d'Amérique invites business people and professionals of the greater Blais family to become partners.

Objectives

  • Gather together all persons interested in the history and genealogy of Pierre Blais’ descendants;
  • Organize meetings and other activities to foster relationships between Association members;
  • Develop and manage Blais family archives;
  • Produce and issue a liaison bulletin and other historical/genealogical publications as well as promotional items relative to Blais history and heritage;
  • Maintain a historical and genealogical help service for its members.
