The Encyclopedia

Welcome to The Encyclopedia of the Lampron, Lacharité, and Desfossés Families in North America.  You probably arrived here because you were researching your family name, or you made a mistake, or you were just surfing for something interesting and you stumbled on this site. Whatever the reason, you have found the largest, most accurate, and most complete family genealogy dealing with the thee principal names: Lampron, Lacharité, and Desfossés.  These three surnames are all associated with one progenitor - Jean Lampron dit Lacharité. As the family tree grew, new surnames were introduced, and existing surnames were modified. The new paternal surnames include, but are not limited to: Glaude, Geoffroy, Beaulac, St Louis, Guertin, and numerous other spousal surnames. My database contains 15 generations of details on our collective family tree and has become the "go-to" place for background histories, documents, photographs, and biographies. There are 50,857 persons, 19,752 families, and 14,996 media objects in the database which grows daily.

I have been running this or previous web sites for over 10 years and the amount of interest generated in our collective family tree has been disappointing and limited to a very few interested family members. As you may appreciate, keeping a website current can be a demanding and resource intensive undertaking that detracts from my real first priority - research. Consequently, at the end of the most current subscriber's website subscription, I will be removing the on-line database. I will not be accepting any new subscriptions as of 9 Aug 2020! In its place, and at the appropriate time, I will open a static site that contains a brief resume of my research, an opportunity to purchase the latest versions of my e-publication "The Encyclopedia," and some snippets of the chapters in The Encyclopedia.

If you are serious about your research, or you just want to explore the history of your ancestors, uncles, aunts, grandparents and their relatives, then The Encyclopedia is the one stop reference book. I have been compiling the data on our collective family for over forty years. The degree of detail on each individual varies and is directly related to the availability of research material and stage of research on any given day. The first six generations have been completed and generations seven and eight are currently being updated daily with the latest data, citations and images. To be clear, there are 15 generations in The Encyclopedia. You may purchase the whole Encyclopedia ($350.00 US dollars) that contains every known family member that I have been able to discover in the past forty years, or just your own ancestors ($139.00 dollars). Any new research added after a purchase will constitute a new version of The Encyclopedia. If you are pondering a purchase, I recommend that you read the FAQ file for more details, and contact me directly to ensure that you or your relatives are in the database.

As of 9 August 2020 there were approximately 43,500 pages in The Encyclopedia exclusive of images which would conservatively add an additional 17,000 pages (this is the $350.00 version). Your direct ancestral line (the $139.00 version) will vary in size, depending on the size of your family. If you scroll down the page you will see a box where you may order either version of The Encyclopedia as an electronic publication (E-Pub). When you click on the "Buy Now" button, you will be taken to PayPal where you may pay for the book. Please note, it may take up to several days before your book is delivered. Given the size of this publication, I recommend that you download "Calibre," a free e-book reader that can load a book of this size.

Once you have purchased The Encyclopedia, you may want to make corrections or add material to your branch or twig of the family tree. You may do that by contacting me directly through my website. I believe you will be amazed at the detail you will find in The Encyclopedia E-Publication.
