Labonte Volumes Added to the Maine Collection

Eighty-two volumes titled "200 Family Trees From France to Canada to US" have now been added to the Maine genealogy collection in the Genealogy Center at the Largo Public Library.

This huge work was the doing of Father Labonte who donated it to the PGS collection this past year. It traces families that ended up in Maine after originating in France and immigrating to Canada.

It is a unique work in itself, but is also a good companion to the "Maine Family Index, 1900-1912" located on the shelf right next to it. To find the collection, look for "929.2741 Labonte."
