Project Pioneer Meets November 9
Ste. Genevieve Project Pioneers will meet with the French Placet and Michaud families and the German Oberle and Operle families on Saturday, November 9, at 10 a.m. in the Ste. Genevieve Library meeting room, located in the Community
Center building on Highway 32. This is the last meeting this year, as the two-month Christmas break begins. Meetings will resume on the second Saturday in February 2020.
The schedule for the year includes a deadline for the majority of submitted information which is needed by the May meeting. Pictures must be submitted by early June, and the final information on the families must be in by mid-July.
Anyone who wants to check family information already entered in the books may do so by asking for the family book at the library during their business hours.

Project Pioneers Begins Meetings For 2020 Honorees
Ste. Genevieve Project Pioneers will meet with the French Placet and Michaud families and the German Oberle and Operle families on Saturday, October 12, at 10 a.m. in the Ste. Genevieve Library meeting room, located in the Community
Center building on Highway 32. This is the first meeting this season, and there will be one more on the second Saturday of November before the two-month Christmas break.
While it may seem that the French families have died out in this area, that actually is not true. Michael Placet, the first of that line, raised six daughters who married and carry other family names. Project Pioneer research shows names that include LaHaye, Charleville, Bequette, Roussin, LaRose and Govreau, among others. Some of these names are more common in the Perryville area.
