History and goals

Our Association was incorporated August 25th, 2000 and is a member of the "Fédération des familles-souches québécoises " (Federation of Quebec's founding families).

It is to honour the memory of the couple that founded the first Bilodeau family in America, Jacques Billaudeau and Geneviève Longchamp, married in Quebec City on October 28th, 1654, that their descendants decided to create the Bilodeau Association, which has the following goals:

Encourage historical and genealogic researches concerning our pioneer Jacques Billaudeau and his descendants, (who bear the name Bilodeau today), and also everything that concerns their common historical patrimony with the Billaudeau families of the west of France and Louisiana.

Encourage, in a general way, meetings and exchanges between members of those different families.
