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.
Join FCHSC at our Spring 2014 Meeting
(Réunion de Printemps)
We invite you to attend our Spring Meeting on Sunday, March 23, 2014, when we will once again celebrate our French heritage with food, fun, and comraderie.
DNA - Tracing French-Canadian Heritage
Y-DNA traces the straight male line, mtDNA traces the straight female line, and autosomal DNA traces all lines. Which is the easiest to interpret and which is the most difficult? Real examples from testing at Family Tree DNA in the French Heritage project will be used to demonstrate how to manage personal pages and how to interpret results.
Flesh On The Bones
The afternoon session consists of a presentation by FCHSC Team Member Raymonde Motil. Raymonde will guide us in extending our ancestors' stories using the SCGS Family Research Library resources and the World Wide Web.
On-site Research Using FCHSC Resources
Following the afternoon presentation meeting attendees can avail themselves of our French-Canadian Research Team's extensive experience and make of the Library's in house and online resources. Access to the subscription databases PRDH and Genealogie Quebec will be open to all who attend.
