Here is some information about our Association and the great family of Séguin:

The ASSOCIATION DES SÉGUIN D’AMÉRIQUE is a nonprofit organization. We have over 1,000 members and 10% of them are from the USA.

We estimate that about 95% of the Séguin in North America are descending from Francois Séguin who married Jeanne Petit in Boucherville, QC (near Montréal) on October 31, 1672. Francois Séguin was probably a soldier of the Regiment de Carignan (but we have no proof) and Jeanne Petit was a "fille du roi" (King’s daughter or girl sent by the king).

We publish quarterly a newsletter of about 24 pages called "La Séguinière", for the English-speaking members we include an English translation of most of the articles. In June 2003, at the occasion of our 50th edition, the newsletter had 52 pages and half of them were a retrospective of the preceding editions.

We have annual meeting with 150 to 600 Séguin. Our last annual meeting has taken place at Embrun, ON (near Ottawa) on June 25th, 2006

We have published on August 27, 2005, a second edition of a genealogical dictionary of the Seguin in North America. It is available as a bonded book at a cost of Cdn$100. including cost of mail or on CD-ROM at a cost of $28.00 including cost of mail (contact us for discount if paid in US funds). We have more than 12 000 marriages of Séguin (including Ladéroute, Laderoot, Sequin, Seguine, Sayan, Sayen, Sayah, Sawyer, ...) and thousands of births and deaths of Séguin. Many are still missing and mostly from the USA where we rest on our members and correspondents to get that information. We usually need the place and date of birth, death and marriage of a Séguin plus the name of the spouse and of his/her parents.

If you wish to apply for membership, it is $25. for the period from July 1st, to June 30th(US$25. for USA members) payable by check to the order of the Association des Séguin d’Amérique. For new membership from December to June, the membership is reduced to $12.50. If you just wish to exchange genealogical information on the Séguin family, it is fine with us.
