|What is The Dumont Genealogical Society (TDGS)?
We are a not for profit group. TDGS voluntarily supports users
like you who may be general enthusiasts, first time researchers,
intermediate or advanced. The ancestral information was
originally researched and provided by Father Joseph Napoleon. In
1999, this website and a second volume of family members and the
origin of the Gueret~Dumont blood line was produced. A Dumont
Family Reunion was held in Madawaska, Maine, June of 1999. This
was a tradition of the Acadian landing used in conjunction with
the family reunion to unite, honor, and preserve the family
Does the Society accept monetary gifts?
Yes. Currently your donation is strictly voluntary and very much
appreciative. We use the proceeds to support further
development, research, website maintenance, and possible
publication for the benefit of all to use.
As a member, is my information given to others?
Any information received by TDGS is only required in the
traditional genealogical format. We ask that no proprietary
information be given to the society that would compromise a
person's security or well-being. We do NOT disclose or forward
your information. TDGS is built on integrity and ethical
values. TDGS will NOT sell information for profit, but only as
stated through the acceptance of monetary gift giving for future
volumes to go to print.
Why does the Society encourage participation?
Whether it's family info, word of encouragement, or monetary
