Association of the Choquet-tes of America Inc.


The adventure began in 1965 with a parish priest, Elisée Choquet of Varennes. He was dynamic and passionate about genealogy and successfully reunited over 350 descendants of Nicolas Choquet and Anne JullienThis first reunion, while raising interest among Choquet-te families, also served to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Nicolas Choquette’s arrival in America and inaugurate a monument in honour of the ancestor.

Jeanne Choquette of Gatineau, another passionate and dynamic adept of genealogy, inspired by the work of her grand-father, Gaston, and seconded by her father, Jean of Anjou, Quebec, decided to organize a second reunion of the Choquet-Choquette families of America in 2002. Over 700 Choquet-te’s from Quebec, other Canadian Provinces and 22 American states converged in Varennes on August 3rd and 4th, 2002, to fraternize, celebrate, encourage artists bearing our name, and pay tribute to our ancestors by commemorating stories of their family. And let’s not forget the visit to the famous monument erected in honour of our ancestor.

The Association was born out of a meeting held in the context of this Reunion on June 1st, 2002.  Twenty people attended this special meeting. On June 10, 2002, the Inspector General of Financial Institutions of Quebec sent out the patent letters officially recognizing  L'Association des Choquet-te d'Amérique Inc. (the official title is in French).  Sub-committees (statutes, rules, recruitment) were also established to see to the 2003 Annual Assembly.  The Association is now dissolved as of Summer 2022
