Beginning French-Canadian Genealogy
December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
From extensive experience in tracking the founding French families of New France, researching the Acadians and French Canadians is made easier by years of documentation that you’ll learn about! This session includes information about online research resources, key social media help areas, and the fundamental tools of this elaborate and well-documented group of people. This is a hybrid meeting. Plan to join us in person, or online if you are unable to be with us in person. A link for the virtual meeting will be posted a week in advance.
