On June 29th, 2020, the plaque in honor of our ancestors Pierre and Jean Labrecque was unveiled
on the chapel of the Canadians in the Saint-Jacques Church in Dieppe, France.
Remember that Pierre and Jean Labrecque, sons of Jacques de La Breque and Jeanne Baron from this parish,
left Dieppe for Quebec, in New France, about 1657 and settled at l’Île d’Orléans in 1659, while continuing their work as seamen.
A plaque which commemorates our ancestors and which leaves an overseas trace of all generations of the Labrecques in America.
The unveiling could not be made in the presence of American Labrecque because of the pandemic.
Thanks to the generosity of several members of the Association, the donations collected made
it possible to pay the costs of production and its installation.
