Why this name?
My children's roots spread wide and far stretching out over
two continents, Europe and North America.
My wife, Isabelle, is from
France and I am from Canada. However, in my
research, I have discovered that some of my ancestors are
from the very same region as she! It then became obvious to
choose a name that reflects the wonderful place from which
she hails. Dieppe's
beaches are composed of pebbles or cobbles instead of sand.
In French, they are called galets (pronounced galay). Their
beaches are unique among all of France's coastline! It
becomes appropriate then, to have galet.org as a "virtual"
link between our Canadian home and our homeland.
Galet: a rounded rock with a dimension
of 10 to 100 mm.
For the past 3 years, I have been
compiling information on my daughter and son's descendants
concentrating on the families of Adam, Avenel, Dallaire,
Martin and Plaquin as well as all of their associated
families. As of this moment, there are more than 3388
individuals and 1100 marriages in my database which includes Céline and Colin's direct
ascendants counting more than 190 different surnames and 700
My objectives for having such a site
|to share with you the history of the
families mentioned above;|
|to keep our family history alive for all the generations
|to collect missing information on our descendants and
|to exchange information regarding all of the connected
|to promote the various genealogy websites that exist.|
