International Websites

This will be a compilation of suggested websites by country.  If you would like to send me links, I will review them and add them as I can.  If you have questions about how to navigate any of these sites, please feel free to send me a message.

CANADA:

  • Jette: This more modern book is not available in digital versions, but at many historical/genealogical libraries (including Hartford).  This website includes English definitions for French genealogical terminology.  (Language: English)

  • Tanguay: A set of books (now digitized and available through this link and through Ancestry) titled: Dictionnaire généalogique des familles canadiennes.   Written in the 1800s, it definitely contains errors, but is a good way to start or expand French family ancestry.  (Language: French)
