The Le Rodrigue~s/z newsletter is the Rodrigue Families Association news organ. It is being published since 1998. It has adopted its current name with Volume 3, issue 2, May-August 2001. The meaning of the name is as follows (excerpt from the above-mentioned issue):
This name represents our RODRIGUE surname, of course; but the dash followed by the two letters “s” and “z” are also reminders of the written form of the surnames of the ancestors from whom our families are descended : RODRIGUES, of Portuguese origin, for the ancestors João (there were two of them, both from Lisbon), Sebastião (from Évora) and João Baptista (from Viana do Castelo); RODRIGUEZ, of Spanish origin, in the case of ancestor Pedro (from Toledo).
Le Rodrigue~s/z is presently published twice a year (in the fall and spring). Some of its articles or chronicles are also published in English, for the benefit of our English-speaking members. Le Rodrigue~s/z is sent automatically to all members in good standing of the Association. It can also be bought by the issue at the cost of $4.00 per issue.
