Notes from Loiselle Sinotte Wisell family gathering in Montreal on Jun 29, 2013

It was great meeting of Loiselle, Sinotte and Wisell family gathering in Montreal on Jun 29, 2013.  We were able to stick to the original agenda quite well.   Some of us have been to Old Montreal alot, for others this was our first visit to Old Montreal.  But how cool was it to walk the steps of our first Canadian Ancesters …. with cousins coming from Ontario, Saskatchewan, Rhode Island and even as far as Chile and back again to our roots.

We are slowly gathering all the notes from the meeting … and collecting some of the memorabilia from the different branches.  Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
