Worldwide friends !
Hello dear could–be relatives !
Your surname leads me to think that most of you may have ancestors who came years ago from Brittany located in the north-western tip of France.
Ten years ago, I co-founded in France this non-profit association called Association LE PENVEN whose main goal is to draw up the family tree by tracing back information on the ancestry of all of us who have the same or quite similar surname, i.e. LE PENVEN or PENVEN. As to 29th of march 2009 the name of our association has been changed into ASSOCIATION LE PENVEN-PENVEN
Beyond this first objective, we hopes to develop friendly relations among the (LE) PENVEN lineage.
To this aim, we arranged, for those interested, a first get-together in Pommerit-Jaudy (north coast of Brittany – 6 miles south of Tréguier) on 2008. The very significant success we've then got let us forecast a second gathering on 27 and 28 th of august 2011 at the same location.
We would have been very nice to welcome all of you but t his second gathering was unfortunately deleted due to a too small number of forcasted participants.
Starting right now we can try, with your help, to trace up your Breton roots and begin to sketch out your family tree. The discovery of links with European (LE) PENVEN would then mean a lot more to our next gathering.
Please let us hear from you and send us all information your already possess.
Looking forward to meeting you,
Jean LE PENVEN Président
PS. For another Surname, I formely built a "cross-Atlantic" family tree establishing links between Brittany (by 1650) and New-York area (at present time) . Some oher trees devoted to our surname could obviously be built with your help
