Welcome to our Website
The Vermont French-Canadian Genealogical Society
Anyone can do genealogy on their own, but if you value the
assistance of expert French-Canadian genealogists who are familiar with the
Name Changes, the Primary Reference Resources, the typical Migration Patterns,
and some knowledge of the French language; you should think about joining our
society. You will certainly also enjoy the easy access to millions of French-Canadian
and Franco-American records, plus books on the lives of the first French pioneers,
the Camaraderie of others doing similar research, our yearly Conference and
our numerous Classes and our journal LINKS in which we publish your successful
efforts twice a year. There are so many reasons to join our society, and make
it your society.
