This site has been established for us to utilize in researching the genealogy of the Desessarts Family.The works of Reverend Donald J. Hebert offer us a great resource for information, but even his publications do not give a complete accounting of the family.While Father Hebert has given us a templet, the collective works of the descendants will make the portrait complete.
