The Société de généalogie Saint-Hubert is the winner of the Cyprien-Tanguay Award 2020, given by the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie "to crown the excellency of an innovation in genealogy".
At the 2020 Annual General Assembly of the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie, held exceptionnally by video conference Wednesday evening November 11, 2020, our project "The Forgotten in Genealogy - Clergenealogy" received the honors for this award.
The following is a free translation of the Cyprien-Tanguay Award description found on the Fédération website:
The Cyprien-Tanguay Award, supported by Mrs Jeannine Ouellet and launched on June 9, 2011, at the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie (FQSG) colloquium, is set to a total value of $500 (nameplate and bursary) to crown the excellency of an innovation.
Named as such to honor the father of genealogical studies in French Canada, the Cyprien-Tanguay Award is intended to societies which are members of the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie, to recognize an exceptional initiative by these societies. Through his extended work, Mgr Tanguay opened the door to genealogical and demographical studies. His strength of character and his social commitment have contributed to the birth of his work.
We are very proud of this recognition because it is an encouragement yo all the volunteers who have contributed to the project and to all those who would want to join our team.
