1st Meeting – November 13, 2013
After a few years of research, a group of descendants of Nicolas Matte and Madeleine Auvray set in motion the foundation of the Matte Association of America
Having each one of them friends in Quebec, Canada or the United States, they want to pool their research to pay tribute to their ancestor. This one being one of the families stem of Neuville.
Their first step will be to set up a website, a leaflet of the Association, highlight the site or sites like the Matte River located near the 365. It crosses the 138 and 365 and also the many streets Matte punctuating the County of Portneuf. Waiting for other valuations …
Thanks to their future members, they can consider a reunion to celebrate the 350 years of arrival of Nicolas Matte in Quebec City and physically highlight the place of the original land of the grandfather Nicolas and his wife. Spread throughout the continent, Matte is found in all provinces and as far as the Yukon, Los Angeles and the lower United States, not to mention the states near the border. Thanks to the impetus of Jeannine Matte Richardson of New Hampshire, whose grandfather was a native of Deschambault, exchanges led to the birth of this new Association. The people in the photo have begun to put the first steps of this new chick, have you informed in the coming weeks and how to be part of this group. Descendant of Nicolas Matte and Rémi Morissette, President of the Neuville Historical Society, who guides them in their first steps.

The Association had to date 2 acronyms that you find on some capsules.
This logo mainly represents the way the family has grown in harmony through the generations. Since the name Matte has French roots, the logo is a graphic representation of the plant as a lily flower – symbol of Quebec and France, to honor the tradition, heritage and family tree of the Matte family. You could also see a huge tree representing a stylized M.
The acronym, current, represents the way in which the family navigates through time and generations. Since the name Matte has French roots, the logo is a graphic representation of the ship that transported our ancestors Nicolas and Madeleine. Surrounded by (blue circle) other people, we proudly display our name (top ribbon) to honor the tradition, heritage and family tree of the Matte family. This one is heading for the future. Sailing through time (wave), we are ready to face the future.
