Between 1980 and 1990, my mother Céline (Léger) Pinet and I made several trips to the Center d'études acadiennes (Moncton, NB) to learn more about the Léger / Légère family and the Pinet family. Thousands of hours have been spent to record the baptismal, marriage and burial records of several parish registers. In 2014, I revised all the data for the parish of Ste Thérèse d'Avila in Cap Pelé, NB.

596 baptisms, 364 marriages and 244 burials have been revalidated.

All this information is included in the update of the genealogy site. The site now contains 70 832 names connected to the Leger and/or Pinet families. 53.18% of the data has been revalidated.
