Driving Directions

From Richmond follow route 143 North to the small town of L'Avenir, about half way between Richmond and Drummondville. The cemetery is not visible from route 143. Watch for the cemetery sign on your right at the north end of town and a long scenic entry road into the cemetery.

Cemetery Background

The parish was created in 1850 and the first cemetery existed until 1893. The present cemetery, also called L'Avenir Catholic Cemetery is in the former Drummond County and now part of Centre du Quebec and Drummond  MRC. Interred here is Jean Baptiste Dorion, also known as l'enfant terrible (the terrible child).

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
