Pain at the Root: Le Grand Dérangement and Our Family History (online)

February 9, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

On Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m., Franco-American Programs presents a talk by Ray Lambert and Megan St. Marie titled “Pain at the Root: Le Grand Dérangement and Our Family History.” Although most of their ancestors came to the United States from Québec, father and daughter Raymond A. Lambert and Megan D. Lambert St. Marie also trace their family tree to Acadians who were impacted by Le Grand Dérangement. In this presentation, Lambert and St. Marie will provide insights into the history of the expulsion of the Acadians by highlighting some of their ancestors’ and relatives’ stories, while also commenting on how learning this history has enriched and informed their lives today.
