A Canadian Family

Evelyn Yvonne Theriault has a site on the Internet <> full of family history.

Evelyn's family came from a diverse background of the Luces from the Channel Islands; the Theriaults - Acadians from Poitou, France; and Mignier dit Lagaces from Quebec.

In addition, she has added some early French-Canadian Pioneers of Quebec, and BMDs of some of these people.

She says that one of her goals in setting up this website was to bring the importance of postcards in the study of family history, in addition to photos.

She takes part in a blog carnival (a virtual magazine, if you will) celebrating postcards entitled, "A Festival of Postcards", which was originally started by the Footnotemaven <>.

The deadline for the next one is Aug. 20th, and will be entitled "Water".

Evelyn has postcards from previous festivals of "Wheels" and "Main Street" for you to look at on her site, as well as postcards of Quebec and New Brunswick.

Thank you so much for mentioning my site and A Festival of Postcards.
I'm very excited to have this chance to promote the use of postcards by family historians as I believe it has a lot of potential.
One small correction I'd like to make is that that I am both the founder and editor of A Festival of Postcards. I mention footNote Maven qutie often because I admired her Smile for the Camera carnival and she was kind enough to write a feature article for the first carnival. She is - and has been - great behind the scenes mentor for me.
Thanks again for the shout out!
