Into Basque Country to Meet My Relatives
"Pays Basque the home of Family Hacala"
I started researching my family tree about 10 years ago and found the Hacala name is Basque. My grandfather came from St. Pierre et Miquelon, and that's all I knew about his end of the family. During the years, I started a family page on a family tree site and the Hacala family started to come together. I got informathin from family members from France to Yellowknife in the Northwest territories in Canada.
This year one of the family members decided to host a family reunion in Basque country, Pays Basque. I got a hotel in St Jean de Luz, France and met my Basque relatives for the first time. Luckily, the reunion was during the annual Basque festival. It was time to connect with my roots.
