Welcome to my site about

the Gagnier (Gagne) family in North America.

This is also the official English language site of our organization,
The Association of Gagne-Bellavance Families in America.
Below there is a link to 118 known spellings of this name.

If you really wish to enjoy your visit today, see the link below,

called "Illustrated History of the Family."

This will take you to the result of years of research:
seven brief sections of photos and stories of our history,
our heraldry and our historical sites in France and Quebec.

You will find much to see and learn about the exciting history
of our ancestors who came to North America beginning in 1644!
After reading the “Illustrated History,” return to this home page

for the guestbook and links to other Gagne sites.

There is also information about membership and our annual meeting.
