The son of the latter, Eugène-Étienne Taché designed the Québec City heritage icons and gifted us with the Québec motto "Je me souviens". This is the history of a principle driven family that designed, through their descendants, a part of Canada's history.S 23280z 1Michel Fragasso is history buff, genealogist and speaker on different subjects related to history and genealogy.
