This is for my heritage album. It's the first of what will probably be many lo's that don't have a photograph on them as I try to present my genealogical research in an aesthetic way that my descendants will enjoy reading. The graphics I used here were taken from the internet. The journaling on the front reads: Nearly all French Canadians can trace their lineage back to at least one of the men of the Carignan-Salières Regiment. We can claim 3 such men in our ancestry: Pierre Perthius dit La Lime of Company-Salières, Jean Arcouet dit La Jeunesse of Company-Loubias, and Jean Mouflet dit Champagne of Company-La Varene. These soldiers were the first French regular troops sent to Canada to assist the colonists in their struggle with the Iroquois. They arrived in Canada in 1665, establishing a series of forts along the Richelieu River and fighting the Iroquois. King Louis XIV, wishing to turn many of the soldiers into permanent colonists, followed up by sending some 770 eligible young women, known as the ‘filles du roi’ or King’s Daughters, to the colony of New France between 1663 and 1673. The King paid for their transportation and settlement in the colony, and many were given a dowry of 50 livres. We have 4 women in our ancestry who came to Canada in this manner. They are: Claudia Damisé, Antoinette Lenoir dit Pirois, Anne Dodin, and Louise Desgranges. Soon after their arrival, these women contracted to marry. Eventually, their descendants all married into the Malosh line.
And on the back I have attached more in depth information about the ancestors
