The 18 Tadoussac Grandchildren

of William Rhodes and Anne Dunn

This is an amazing collection of photographs of the RHODES Family in Tadoussac, assembled from albums of many families. These folks are our ancestors, the people that enjoyed Tadoussac before we did. You  will have heard of most of them, and if you are 40+ maybe you knew them.


This page is LONG, hundreds of  photos. But it's PHOTOGRAPHS, not much reading involved! Take the time to get to know some great people.

This page introduces the older ancestors, the children of William and Anne Rhodes, but focuses on the 18 grandchildren who spent wonderful time in Tadoussac from the 1880's to the 1980's! 

Of the 18 only 8 have descendants, but there are now about 140 direct descendants who come to Tadoussac, and they have built 16 houses  in Tadoussac! You may be one!
