“BIG – HISTORY – HAPPENING”

AACDQ brings you

Hello there!

You probably you already know about the event that we’re setting up for July 2022. We’re going to give you a bit more information about it here.

This is an opportunity to get to know your DNA related cousin, at a FAMILY event. The name of the event is “BIG – HISTORY – HAPPENING” This will take place in Chicoutimi, Saguenay, QC, Canada. Save the dates from July 29 to 31 of 2022. Most of our ancestors are from that region, the reason why we chose that location.

This will be three days of getting to know each other, learning, exploring our roots, and having fun.

We’re working on packages for the benefit of everyone. To get this rolling, we need a headcount. This doesn’t have to be exact, but think about and include your whole family, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, grandchildren, siblings and even friends. This event is not exclusive to adoptees it is for the whole family. Air and land transportation will be available at a discount for those who require them. Monthly payments will be available for your convenience as well.

First of its kind EVENT ever. A TIME to bond with your family and find your roots. A TIME to have fun and learn. TIME for a getaway vacation for the entire family as well.

Please join us! Join all your cousins in making history where our roots began.

who would you like to hear? 

The most important thing about our event is getting to know each other as a family. In the same way, we can take advantage of the time to increase our knowledge in the different areas that are involved in the search for our biological families. We are reaching out to different entities to extend an invitation to be a speaker. What would you like to hear or learn? Here is your opportunity.
