French-Canadian genealogical research has never been so easy. In just four pages, Denise R. Larson, author of the best-selling Companions of Champlain: Founding Families of Quebec,1608-1635, lays out the basic elements of French-Canadian research, boiling the subject down to its essence and allowing you to grasp the fundamentals of French-Canadian research at a glance.
In keeping with the “Genealogy at a Glance” theme, the four specially laminated pages of this work are designed to give you as much useful information in the space allotted as youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll ever need.
Focusing on key record sources and materials for further reference, Larson first provides history and context, then deals with the unique aspects of French-Canadian research such as Acadia and Quebec before moving on to traditional record sources, finishing with a summing up of record repositories and online sources. In less than a handful of pages she provides all the basic instruction you need in order to begin and to proceed successfully with your research.
