2. Participation is for those who are able to trace their ancestry to an Acadian living in Acadia before 1755.

3. The VT-FCGS Acadian Pin Program begins on October 21, 2017 at our Fall Conference when Mike Sevigny will present the "History of Your Acadian Ancestors".

Add $4.00 if the pin has to be mailed (anywhere in the USA).
