I recently came across a biography of Father Leo P. Begin in the Maine Franco-American Genealogical Society site.It mentions his interest in genealogy, and he bequethed his genealogical colection to them. Father Begin's family came from Megantic, Quebec, and moved down to Lewiston, Maine.His great-grandparents were Benjamin Begin and Marie Noel who were married in Medicine Lake Minnesota.Father Begin's genealogy files trace his family back to Louis Begin, son of Jacques Noel, who came to Canada from Honfleur, Normandy. I have sent off an e-mail to the genealogical society concerning Father Begin's genealogy papers, but have received no response back from them yet. P.S.the biography for Rev. Leo E. Begin includes a photograph of him.
