Juneau International Family Reunion (JIFR) launched in 1988 to once again bring together Juneau … and Jouineau… relatives from around the world. On the urging of Eugene Connerton, who co-authored The Genealogy of the Juneau Family , Virginia Juneau and John Juneau, wife and son of Alcide Joseph Juneau, decided to have a Juneau Family Reunion. Mr. Connerton encouraged us to not limit it to local, or state, or national, but to unite Juneau family members from around the world and to actually bring together our living heritage. We are based in Shreveport, La.
It all began with “The Blue Book” by Eugene Connerton and Leo Paul Landry. This is the original genealogy of the Jouineau family from France and the Juneau family of North America.
Ok ..I agree, it didn’t ALL begin with the Blue Book. Maybe, you are thinking it began in France with the Jouineaus, but then … they had ancestors too. … all the way back to, … Adam & Eve?
But, the documenting and bringing together of our family heritage was first chronicled in Genealogy of the Juneau Family.
Mom, Virginia Harvey Juneau, and I, John Juneau, have learned so much about our family from the Blue Book. Mr. Connerton has been our inspiration in moving forward with carrying our heritage into the lives of today’s Juneau Families. Mom and I have authored an updated version in our 2 volume Red Books published in 2006. And, at the urging of Mr. Connerton and our own desire to bring the Juneau Family together, we organized our own version of the Canadian Ralliement of the Juneau Family that was held in 1960. We started the Juneau International Family Reunions (JIFR) in 1988 and held the 1st JIFR in 1991 at the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans, LA.
