Special presentations and discussions on researching French ancestors from North America to Europe. Demonstrations for researching online for records (birth/baptism, marriage, death/burial, notarial, census and more) in Nouvelle-France, Quebec, Ontario, Acadia, some U.S. states, and France will be provided. Other topics will be reviewed such as terminology used in French records, history of French Canadian Genealogy, resources available at the Edmonton's French Genealogical Society, Société généalogique du Nord-Ouest, and more. Assistance will also be available in translating documents, working on brick walls and navigating French websites. Members will participate by sharing their experiences, knowledge and successes.
The French SIG meets on the 1st Tuesday of February, April, October and December at 7:00 pm.
