Ernest was without question the No. 1 expert on the Cadieux family. It was eminently generous of him to share all his hard work and information with us.
He will be missed.
Perhaps some other Cadieux family genealogist should be given a copy of his CD files? Or maybe you should donate it to a genealogical collection at a Quebec library? It would be a terrible shame for all his information and hard work to just disappear.
