My genealogy site was updated March 31, 2018. The site now contains 70 997 individuals related to the Leger and/or Pinet families. 53.78% of the data has now been revalidated.

Are you a descendants of Jacques Léger dit Larosette or Philippe Pinet and are not included in my published data? You can rectify the situation by sending me your information. My contact information can be found on my genealogy site:

Cemeteries also tells the story of many!

In 2002, I became aware that a fellow genealogist, Rick Legere, was also researching the descendants of Jacques Léger dit Larosette. As part of his research, he had started publishing pictures of Leger tombstones on his website. These pictures were from cemeteries in southeastern New Brunswick and from the Cumberland county in Nova Scotia. It didn't take long for me to propose that we partner in this effort and cover all cemeteries that include tombstone of Leger and/or Pinet descendants.
