A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

10 day alert!!! Calling All Acadians/French-Canadians Within Reach of Manchester, New Hampshire

In case you’re new to American/Acadian/French-Canadian  genealogical research, I wanted to mention that the

American-Canadian Genealogical Society

is having its Fall Conference next Saturday, September 26th, 2009.

I’m in Montreal and have never been able to make it down there,  but the calibre of speakers tells me it must be a great event!

The first I’d like to mention is my friend Lucie LeBlanc Consentino (Acadian Ancestral Home) who will speak on “Who Were The Acadians? Where Did They Resettle Post Exile? Does DNA or mtDNA Help To Prove Their Origins?”.

The second is  Peter J. Gagne (originally of Connecticut, but now living in Quebec) a professional historian, archivist and published author who will be speaking about “Les Filles a Marier”.

Last, but not least, is professional genealogist Melinde Lutz Sanborn. She’s editor/co-editor of several genealogical publications and will be speaking on the topic of “Forensic Genealogy”.

  1. Hi, I live in San Diego but the wife is from Montreal, so I have started to do research on her side for my daughters. Her family names are Lachapelle, Robitaille, Simard, and Langlois I believe. Wish I could make it to the Conference.

  2. I think the child clothes is different than today because the pants have two belts to hold up the pants and the hat of the child is way different than today because today they have desighs today the front of the hat today they have color and designs in front of the hat and in the olden days they have gray as color and no designs on the front.

  3. I think the boys’ clothes is different from today. I never saw a hat like the man’s and the kid’s hat.
    My dad usually wears a thing like the man’s to go at a restaurant.
    When I was a kid I used to wear salopets like the kid.
