This is a project to create a Violette family history book. It was initiated partially because Rita Violette Lippe's book Descendants of Francois Violet is now out of print and will not be reprinted, and partially because so many members have asked for information about our early ancestors and their life and times.
The book has been published and is available at Amazon. Search for it by title: A Violette History, or by any of the coauthors' names. It is priced at $38 and was written by David A. Violette, VFA#621; Guy F. Dubay, VFA#892; and Rod Violette, VFA#12.
The three coauthors, all Violette descendants and all Violette Family Association members, worked for almost five years in the research and production of the book. The book includes first hand accounts of author visits to places associated with François Violet/Violette and traces his story from before his birth to his pioneering in the Upper St John River Valley.
