    Is/was there a community named St Anoine near St Isadore de Bellevue. I have been researching my family tree, and found my maternal Great grandfather Thomas Boulet (1855-1919) lived there, and that my grandmother Rose Anna Brulotte ( nee Boulet) was born in St-Zacharie ( 1894)and married in St-Antoine (1913)
    Are these places still habitated?
    Please reply in English, unfortunately I was not taught the French language as a child and so limited to reading/understanding French.

    Comment pouvez-vous collaborer avec moi pour faciliter les contacts ou si vous le croyez important, faire des suggestions? : je suis recherchiste à Moncton au Nouveau-Brunswick et travaille présentement à mettre ensemble des éléments pour tourner à Bellevue du 2 au 8 juillet prochain un documentaire de 22 minutes qui s’intitule: La Saskatchewan: dans la cour des Gaudet et des Gareau. Ce documentaire fait partie d’une série de dix sur autant de rivières qui traversent le Canada. Notre diffuseur est Radio-Canada.

    L’intention est de présenter Bellevue, son histoire de colonisation brièvement, rencontrer des descendants, connaître ce qu’il en est aujourd’hui au niveau culturel, économique et social. Nous avons pensé parler avec le Père Rolland Gaudet pour faire le tour de l’histoire de Bellevue, les premières familles fondatrices et le rôle du clergé à l’époque; souhaitons rencontrer des agriculteurs, parler de l’industrie du petit-pois avec les petits-fils du fondateur de Belle Pulse; Laurier Gareau, historien et auteur pour nous donner un survol de Bellevue aujourd’hui au niveau culturel, social et de son économie en bref; rencontrer des Gareau, des Gaudet lors de souper, rencontre de familles ou simple pique-nique ou toute autre activité. En résumé, saisir la communauté et faire revivre un pan de l’histoire des francophones. Nous souhaitons souligner les couleurs de Bellevue; ce qui se passe, comment on vit la culture, on fait quoi, les passions, la musique, et certainement, les Gareau et les Gaudet lors d’une rencontre de groupe ou mieux si on est chanceux, entrer dans une rencontre de famille. Ces rencontres de familles ont-elles toujours de l’importance? Bellevue c’est une histoire de généalogie, nous voulons la regarder. Les Gareau et les Gaudet ont peuplé St-Isidore de Bellevue. On dit qu’à une époque, une classe pouvait être au complet remplie de Gaudet. Nous serons aussi à la Fête fransaskoise. Je souhaite découvrir si la rivière Saskatchewan a un lien quelconque avec les gens de Bellevue et des environs, d’une façon ou d’une autre… des histoires? edith.a.brideau@gmail.com MERCI!

    Hey, I drove through about a month ago. And noticed the old ski hill and I was wondering if the lodge was still up and working and also if it could be rented for a night or so.
