Violette Family Assco & Award
An Acadian Family Organization




The Violette Family Association Reunion

In Partnership with the Acadian Congress August 2014

As we collect information and more details, it will be added here, but we really need you Violette's to start marking your calendar. Please take note that your surname does not have to be Violette to be a part of this fine organiztion. If you know you have "Violette Roots" and that your genealogy goes back to the founder (or need help to find out), Francois Violette/Violet who was born in 1744, that's all you need. All family members are welcome to attend.

 Check out the official Violette Family Association Website at:

 This membership is FREE, not like other Associations/Societies, but we do look for support in the form of donations, participation (If you can), Reunion Raffel donations, and hopefully, your presence at each one of our reunions that are held every 3 years. If you know of any Violette descendants, please let them know of our sites and interests in their membership. .

One added website is by Yvon Cyr who does a wonderful job on our Acadian history and heritage. Our genealogist, Rod Violette submitted this great historical timeline of our Violette family.
