Violette Family Genealogy
Much of the focus of the Violette Family Association has from the start been on genealogy. It started with the work done by Rita Violette Lippé (VFA #1) back in the 1970s and has continued with the work by Rod Violette (VFA #12) in a computerized system.
Rita Violette Lippe (#1) did considerable genealogical research, and published a book titled “The Descendants of Francois Violet”. Sorry – this book is now out of print.
Rod Violette (#12) is the current official Genealogist for the Violette Family Association. You may contact him for questions or with info at:
1775 Barn Valley Lane
Lincoln, CA 95648
