Our family association was founded on January 24, 1993 in Longueuil (Québec). On March 16 of the same year, the government of Quebec officially registered it as a not-for-profit association. As a member of the Fédération des association de familles du Québec (F.A.F.Q), our head office is located in Sainte-Foy (Québec), where the Fédération is established.
However, for day-to-day correspondence, our address is:
Association des Charron et Ducharme, inc.
2748, rue Berthon
Longueuil, QC, Canada J4M 1X1
As stated in our charter, the main objectives of the association are as follows :
- To regroup the descendants of Pierre Charron and Catherine Pillard, who were married in Montreal in 1665; they are the founding couple of our families.
- To promote the development of the history and genealogy of Charron and Ducharme families and encourage the dissemination of available information.
Pierre Charron and Catherine Pillard gave birth to 12 children. The descendants of this prolific couple currently number at least 25,000 and represent more than half the Charrons and Ducharmes spread over North America. Three of their four sons retained the original name, Charron, while a fourth one for unkown reasons adopted around 1701 the surname Ducharme which he transmitted to his descendants.
The Association des Charron et Ducharme Inc. is managed by a Board of Directors whose 11 members are elected for a three-year renewable term. The association may from time to time designate substitute members to ensure the continuity of its activities in case some elected members are not available.
The president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and registrar are designated by the Board during its annual general meeting usually held in May.
