Coursolle Family On Sunday, January 23, 2021, from 2 to 5 p.m., at the Dupuis House at the Sibley Historic Site located at 1357 Sibley Memorial Highway, Mendota, Minnesota Jane Hayden-Hart.

On Sunday, January 23, 2021, from 2 to 5 p.m., at the Dupuis House at the Sibley Historic Site located at 1357 Sibley Memorial Highway, Mendota, Minnesota Jane Hayden-Hart will share her findings about the 1855-56 “Sioux Affidavits” which were taken by commissioners H.H. Johnson and William Ashley Jones from persons attempting to establish mixed-blood status in order to receive benefits from the treaty signed at Prairie du Chien in 1830. Jane has been researching her maternal Coursolle family history for over 15 years, with her great-great-grandfather Joseph Coursolle being a principal subject. Family and social connections were explored in the research for this presentation which greatly added to her family’s knowledge of their French/Dakota heritage.

 

The cost for this Heritage event will be $20.00.  In addition to the presentation by Jane Hayden-Hart, Phillip Gallandat will play French-Canadian Music and there will be wine and hors d’oeuvres provided.

 

Register on the website of the French-American Heritage Foundation (FAHF) at http://fahfminn.org/courselle or send a letter with your names and email address along with a check made payable to FAHF, P.O. Box 25384, Woodbury, MN 55125.   Registration will be limited to 30 persons!!
