Bienvenue! Welcome!

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 Fall 2014 Meeting
(Réunion d'Automne)

We invite you to attend our Fall Meeting on Sunday, October 26, 2014, when we will once again celebrate our French heritage with food, fun, and comaraderie.

“French Canadians Who Helped Settle California and the American West”

Did you know that many pioneers of the western United States had French-Canadian roots? Join us as we trace the migrations of these early settlers of the nineteenth century.
