GENEALOGY IS FUN!
Genealogy can be a fun project for the entire family (watch Snoopy "Who am I?"), and for those of you who are just beginning your trek down the ancestral road, there are numerous websites on the Internet such as, Ancestor Search, that can help aid you in your search.
DID YOU KNOW?
One of the first things you will discover about the Lampron ancestry is that all present day Lamprons living in Canada and the United States can trace their ancestral roots back to a young soldier named Jean Baptiste dit Lacharité Laspron, who served in the French military unit of the Carignan-Salières Regiment. Jean was born 21 May abt. 1645, in La Charité-sur-Loire, France, a small commune in the Nièvre department in central France in the south of Paris.
This regiment was used between 1665 and 1668, by order of the finance ministry of France to reinforce existing troops in New France, and as further protection against possible Indian threats to the struggling colony of New France settlers and merchants. In fact, most French Canadians have several ancestors who served in the Carignan-Salières Regiment.

FRENCH CANADIAN EMIGRATION TO
THE UNITED STATES 1840-1930
Between 1840 and 1930 roughly 900 000 French Canadians left Canada to emigrate to the United States. This important migration, which has now been largely forgotten in Quebec’s collective memory, is certainly one of the major events in Canadian demographic history.
