Are you researching your ancestors? Do you want to know what part of France they came from; where they began their journey to New France? If so, you might be interested in the new group formed by members of the Quebec Family History Society (QFHS).
The France Research Special Interest Group meets every 4th Sunday of the month at 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the QFHS Library and Center at 173 Cartier Avenue in Pointe-Claire, Quebec just off of Highway 20 (opposite the CLSC).
QFHS members are welcome to join these monthly meetings. Together, in a friendly and informal setting, new and experienced genealogists gather to discuss our French ancestors. The focus of the group is to share researching techniques available on the Internet. France has a wealth of free websites containing numerous databases and extensive archives for each of the 95 departments dating back in time to the 1500s.
If you are not a member and are interested in joining the group or want know more about QFHS, visit the website at www.qfhs.ca.
