Québec Genealogical Societies
A time will come when you will need information that is kept at the local level, such as confirmation that an ancestor is buried in a particular cemetery etc. Getting hold of locally held information is not easy when you live miles away from the location. When you know where a person lived, the local associations are best placed to help you. Most genealogical and genealogical societies attempt to preserve documents and history for the area in which they are located. They offer different services. Here are some URL of associations and some which provide links to other websites.
Le Centre de généalogie francophone d’Amérique - Clubs, associations, groups
Provides links to many historical and genealogical clubs, and also to many family associations that research a single surname:
Genealogical Societies Outside Québec
There are Franco-Ontariens who have set roots and prospered in what is now Ontario for over three centuries. Their past is rich in history but not well known. These ancestors have bestowed upon us a precious heritage that we need to discover and appreciate. See the Ontario Government’s webpage
“Histoire de la présence française en Ontario”
These sites identify a large number genealogical sites on a variety of subject. The sites are often broken down into categories and have the names and URL indexed in some fashion.
Information in this Wiki page is excerpted from the online courses Research: French Canadian Ancestors offered by The National Institute for Genealogical Studies.
