How do we honor the families?
Ste Genevieve Project Pioneer
Ste. Genevieve Project Pioneer was started in 1989 by Lucille Basler in conjunction with the Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce. In 2001 we became a non-profit organization of our own. In our over twenty year history we have honored over sixty families of French, German and African-American and even English heritage.
Monies raised from the sale of the family history books go to support genealogy programs in the local schools and the local library.
Members of the organization are individuals that enjoy history and genealogy. Anyone interested in joining the group may do so by coming to a meeting. There are no dues charges for being a member.
