The primary purpose of the French-Canadian Heritage Society of California (FCHSC) is to foster an interest in our common French-Canadian, Acadian, and French heritage by researching our ancestors and helping others research theirs. FCHSC is affiliated with the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS), whose Family Research Library houses one of the largest collections of French-Canadian and Acadian genealogical materials in the United States.
