Collette Family Photo Gallery

This is a work in progress, initiated August, 2003, which represents in photos the descendants of the union of Denys Collette (III) (1821-93) and Martine (Mathilde) Vermette (1823-1847). Both were born in St. Henri de Levis, Quebec; and both are buried in Oakwood, North Dakota. They married at St. Henri October 17, 1842.

For samples of how the family pages of the album will look, see galleries below.

If you are descended from Denys and Mathilde Collette's line, or have photos relating to the family, and wish to add photos to this web-page gallery, please contact Dick Bernard for more information. Names of this couples children are listed below.

Specific genealogy information is not included at this site, but genealogy information is available on request. Questions or proposed additions or corrections, particularly in names or spellings of names, are welcome, though a reality with names is that there often was more than one correct version of any particular name, due to translation from French to English, French and English nicknames, use of middle names, etc. Exact dates are often difficult to ascertain.

Several Collette family stories are accessible on this website here.
