Travel journal and contest - Follow the track of our heroes in France

Follow the adventures of two Canadian families who have left on the track of our heroes in France.

100 years ago, the signing of the Armistice in France ended the first major world conflict. You might have, just like the Langlois-Lafleur and Cameron-McCarron families, an ancestor who crossed the Atlantic to go to the battlefields. In their travel diaries, these two families tell us about how they felt as they visited the Canadian First World War memorial sites in France, but also share the precious family moments spent in a region with many charms.

Read their daily travel diary and enter the contest! You could win a trip for two to France!
