French Emigrants:  They Were Not All Huguenots, or Nobles, or from Alsace-Lorraine - Ann Morddel, CG

One of the great difficulties for people researching their French immigrant ancestors’ roots is that so little is known outside of France about when and why the French left their country. This dearth of knowledge has led many family historians of the 19th century to presume Huguenot, noble émigré or Alsace-Lorraine ancestry for any ancestor with a French name. The supposition became a family legend that then became a research frustration as more recent family historians attempt to prove what was never more than a misguided supposition.

This webinar looks at the many waves of French migration, as well as the three mentioned in the title, from the 17th to the 20th centuries. The historical reasons for when, why and to where they emigrated will provide the key points to bear in mind when conducting research. The bibliography, in English and French, contains not only books and articles concerning French emigration but a list of websites to aid the researcher.

Genealogy Fun While Developing New Genealogists - Sindi Broussard Terrien
Sindi was inspired to write "Genealogy Fun While Developing New Genealogists" and "Fun with Genealogy Activity Book 1" when she learned that fellow genealogists were discouraged by family members' lack of interest in genealogy and family history. As one of the organizers for family events, she looks for fun ways to include the family history and genealogy at parties and get-togethers.

Sindi's presentation will be how to engage family members with family history and genealogy that may lead them to adopt the genealogy pastime. She will discuss her personal experiences as well as examples from her two books.

This program is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
