News: Welcome to our new site! All data from the old site (including photos) have now been uploaded (whew!)

I will now begin granting limited access to users that have requested it, however all edits will be reviewed by either Vernon CHARTIER or myself for the time being until we're sure the user knows how the new system works (and he and I are still learning it too!).

NOTE: The maps feature does not seem to work well on GOOGLE Chrome, so use the internet browser bundled with Windows.

    • Name Marie-Rosina CHARTIER 
      • This family is a perfect example of the intolerance that existed in some parts of the U.S.A. towards French-Canadians. When George Charlebois left Trois-Riviere to go to Bay City, Michigan, his family discovered that French names were not accepted in the Bay City area. They were not even supposed to speak French. If French children were caught speaking French, the teachers would put a kind of adhesive tape across their mouths. Sometimes some of the English speaking children, if they had a complaint against a French
        child, would falsely report that they heard him or her speaking French so they would be punished by the teacher. Of course, the teacher always took the English-speaking childs word over the French-speaking child. This was the atmosphere, which greeted the Charlebois family. George Charlebois had to agree to go by the name Woods, Woods being the English translation for "bois", the last part of "Charlebois" or "Charles-woods". Both Rosine and George are buried in Duluth Minnesota as George and Rosine Woods
