Beginning French Canadian Genealogical Research

Saturday, November 10, 2018
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Community Room

The presentation will examine the record types available in French Canada, on line and print resources available for accessing those records, and the ways in which French Canadian genealogical research differs from research on other nationalities. We will further explore:

  • The kinds of records that exist, how to locate them, and how they differ from similar comparable records in the U.S.
  • Unusual types of research problems common to French Canadian research.
  • The organization of standard print and online source materials and how to read and use them.

About the Speaker

Ronald Blanchette is a member of the Board of Directors of the French-Canadian Genealogical Society of Connecticut.

Social Hour at 1 p.m.

This is an informal social hour with others who are interested in genealogy. The goal is to share experiences with fellow genealogists and hopefully gain new insights. Think of the most important question or issue that you have about your genealogy. It may be a brick wall that you are facing with one of your ancestors, a question of wanting to know where to find a particular resource, or a success that you are dying to share with the rest of us.

Book Exchange

Bring in genealogy books and periodicals that you are no longer using and make them available to people who can make use of them.
