Re: Sorel, Quebec, Canada Beauchemin pictures

Hi Cousin,

Yes, there are still many Beauchemins in Sorel. Up until about 10 years ago the island where my father now lives was owned by Beauchemins. It was real weird: People owned their houses but didn't own their land. The land belonged to the Beauchemin family (i.e.: The WHOLE island).

The Beauchemin name was very popular in the Quebec culture back in the '70s when Radio Canada aired a T.V. show called "Le Survenant" which was based from a book written by a local author; Genvieve Geuvremont. Some older folks in Quebec still remember the "Survenant". I don't think much of the original T.V. footage of that show even survived. I have seen some extracts but never saw an entire episode myself.

Here's something interesting: You may have cousins in St-Charles, Mississouri you didn't know about. Follow this link: http://www.rootsweb.com/~qcrichel/00001250.HTM and you can follow the trail all the way back to Paul Hus (Beauchemin ancestor).
