Born on January 31st, 1812 in Laval, paroisse St-Vincent de Paul de l'Île Jésus, baptised on February 1st, 1812 at the same location.

February 2002

Welcome to the Richer dit Laflèche Family Association web site.
This site was created in 1999 to prepare the first Richer-Laflèche family reunion and was used subsequently for the creation and the launching of the family book in 2000 and 2001.
For 2002, it is now the official site of the brand new Richer dit Laflèche Family Association. Along with its new look, it now has its own domain name:

On top of finding valuable information on many different subjects, you can also get a book on the greater Richer dit Laflèche family and a souvenir of the 1999 reunion at a low cost. You will also find information on the association, a family tree containing more than 11000 individuals, historic facts on certain ancestors, information on the coat of arms and a search engine.

The first association newsletter is scheduled to appear in April 2002 and will be sent to members by postal mail. It will then be published three times a year thereafter.

We hope, as much as possible, to keep up to date information on this site and make it more dynamic. New items will appear on this page, so be sure to visit regularly.
And of course is you have any suggestions...
