SEE DICK about French-Canadian Research

DearREADERS,

French-Canadian research is close to the top of my list of genealogical research with which I have no experience. But Dick Eastman is 50% French-Canadian, so I take him at his word in particular on that subject. I was thrilled to read his weekly newsletter and make note of a detailed report on this topic. For instance, I didn't know that:

-- "French-Canadian research is greatly facilitated by the excellent Catholic church records that were kept." I always thought it was hard to do Canadian research.

-- The library of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society in Manchester, New Hampshire has 1.5 terabytes of records that were microfilmed by the Institut Généalogique Drouin.
If you have French-Canadian ancestry, you simply must view the entire article:

Happy family tree climbing!
