| The Cottenoire/Cotnoir/Préville Family
Emblème des Cotnoir
Our Coat of Arms



On March 29, 2009 we held a meeting at the Restaurant the Pergola in Gatineau and 32 descendants of Anthoine Cottenoir came to fraternize and exchange on their origins, their history and their experiences.
This meeting proceeded in a family atmosphere and several participants met unknown descendants in the line of Cotnoirs. Some participants came from as far as Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Laurentides, Montérégie and the Center of Quebec to meet people of Gatineau. Cheer for this enthusiasm!
That moment will remain memorable because the foundations of the Association of the Cottenoir/Cotnoir Families have been provided there. 17 people paid their contribution on the spot and became the founding members of this association. Cheer and thank you for confidence that you show me.

Here are some photographs taken at the time of this meeting. Thanks to Rachel, photographer, who naturally is absent from these photographs just as Jean-Louis Cotnoir.
