This presentation will begin with a description of the differences between FrenchCanadian record types and those typically available for U.S.-based research. It will explain and illustrate some of the unusual problems as well as some of the advantages of searching in the records of French Canada, and will end with an overview of the resources available at the French-Canadian Genealogical Society of Connecticut’s library in Tolland, CT and at the Godfrey.
