La Cristerie no longer open for visits 

I received the folowing message on 26 Aug 2009, from Louise Racine:

"I visited the Pelletier ancestral home in Bresolettes last week while on a holiday in France. Though I was unable to make contact with the mayor prior to my departure, I had read that Jacqueline had moved and so I was expecting to see the house vacant. We arrived to find a young family is living there. The woman was gracious though she made it clear that she was not able to continue to welcome visitors into her home. I gather members of the Pelletier clan come by frequently... she intends to post a webpage to that effect once she gets internet"

Pelletier Chronicles

I recently received and read "Pelletier Chronicles - 500 Years" by Lonnie Pelletier. It is an interesting and entertaining blend of fantasy and fact about his ancestors in the Guillaume lineage.

As Lonnie puts it:

"Part memoir, part history and part evaluation of all that is Canadiana, this is a book that every family can identify with. As a detective of history, the author has presented chronicles that evolve in a manner that show that truth often becomes more interesting than fiction. The reality of ethic and serving, along with related local history, is consistently introduced."

I highly recommend it to anyone in that lineage. If interested, you can visit Lonnie's website at where you can see all of Lonnie's works which includes novels, art, and music

Gigi Pelletier recently did a painting of La Cristerie and has graciously submitted a copy for inclusion on the site...
