Stephen A. White - Acadian Genealogist

Stephen A. White, Acadian Genealogist Honored

Dear Cousins,

Stephen A. White, Acadian Genealogist, received an honor this week that has been granted to very few.

Here is a translation of the french text:

Stephen A. White, Genealogist at the Centre d’études acadiennes Anselme-Chiasson, Moncton campus, has been nominated "généalogistes émérites" by the Quebec Bureau that recognizes persons with exceptional competency in genealogical research.

Under the auspices of the Fédération québécoise des société de généalogy, this is the highest honor that can be given by the Québec Bureau.

A "généalogistes émérites" is an individual who has had a long experience in genealogical research and who has shown exceptional competency in his work.

Mr. White is the first to receive this honor since 1984 and among the 19 other "généalogistes émérites" so named, he is the only one from outside of Québec to obtain this distinction.

The certificates will be given to recipients at a ceremony that will take place during the conference of the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie in Trois-Rivieres, Québec, on June 13, 2009.

(I could find no correct or exact translation for "généalogistes émérites" .)


Good Friday 2009

Today is Good Friday. It is a most special day for Christians around the world. Let us spend some time in God's presence today remembering who God is in our lives; that he gave His only Son, Jesus; that through His sacrifice and God's goodness, we have come to know the meaning of forgiveness in our lives.

Your cousin,
