Acknowledgements and Thanks

Discovering and keeping alive the achievements of our ancestors and making them known, by disseminating them, are among the objectives of the Association des Archambault d’Amérique. This monograph is a step in that direction. It introduces us to the important work of François de L’Assomption, church builder.

The author of this monograph, Jacques, co-founder of the Association, deserves our praise and our gratitude for having prepared this interesting and high quality work, which introduces us to an Archambault worthy of our homage and a source of pride.

In this project, he benefited from the support and collaboration of Pierre, our archivist, who did research on the churches. Richard was also responsible for the layout and printing of the monograph. Richard was president of the Association for over fifteen years. It is therefore a team of experienced genealogists who prepared this magnificent work.

On behalf of the Archambault d’Amérique, I would like to thank these three valiant members of the Association and I wish you a pleasant reading and many happy visits to the churches that bear the mark of François.

Raynald Archambault, Eng.
