WELCOME TO THE BELGIAN RESEARCHERS

Founded in 1976 by

Micheline Gaudette and Ardiena Stegen


The backbone of the organization is a quarterly newsletter-magazine "Belgian Laces".
 

Published in English, it gives our members a sense of belonging, and is a vehicle for sharing information.  

In "Belgian Laces", you can expect to find historical articles about the Old country and the New country.  You will also read the stories of Belgian immigrants, their role and contribution to the development of particular industries in the US (like the glass and coal industry in the Mid-West or the tobacco industry in Canada).  

You will also find the stories of the trials and tribulations connected with starting a new life in a new country.  "Why and how did they emigrate? Where did they go? What did they do?"

As each of us has anecdotes from our personal family history, we welcome articles from our members to be published in the magazine.

A special feature of the magazine is the "Queries", in which members desiring information about a particular person or event can submit a query in the hope that someone will be able to help. These queries, available to our members only, have proven to be very successful and are a strong component of the magazine.
