Looking for relatives of either name from Notre Dam de Lac, Quebec, Canada. My grandparents were Henri Dugas and Josephine Melancon. I am not sure they were born there but most of their children were born there. Rita (Margarita), Regina, Alfreda, Irene, Reginald, and one more brother I cannot recall his name. They moved to Lewiston Maine, where Henri worked for the railroad. The kids took the train to school. But I cannot remember if they took the train from a near by town to Lewiston or took the train from Lewiston to another town for school. My mother, Alfreda, was 4 years old in 1915 when they moved to maine.
My mother's sisters traced grandmother and grandfathers heritage and found they were ancestors of Acadian French. None of the family knew of this ancestry not even my mother. If anyone would care to email me I am interested in knowing when the Melancon and Dugas family reunions will be in 2014. Susan
