Researching French Canadian Heritage
You likely already know John Kaminski from his presentation earlier this year regarding tracing Eastern European roots. He has given the AGEN20 (Adele's Genealogy 2020) bug to his wife and has increased his researching knowledge by helping Adele trace her French Canadian heritage. Using at least 6 online sources, they have been able to trace Adele's maternal lineage through documentation back to the early 1700's, almost all exclusively born in Nouvelle France.
John and Adele have not pursued much farther back than her 7th great grandparents, but know there are a few Acadian and French links, including Filles du Roi, convicted salt smugglers and military personalities. It has been a wild ride through Canadian history not taught in the classrooms!
