Les naturalisations françaises et leurs archives
Lorsqu’un ancêtre ou un lointain cousin a émigré en France et s’y est définitivement installé, il a souvent souhaité devenir français. Il a alors entamé une procédure de naturalisation parfois longue et souvent compliquée… Elle a donné lieu à la constitution d’un dossier conservé aujourd’hui aux Archives nationales, incroyable et essentielle source d’informations sur le demandeur et sa famille. Complexe par ses règles qui n’ont cessé d’évoluer, la naturalisation l’est aussi par la procédure qu’il faut suivre pour vérifier l’existence d’un dossier et pouvoir ensuite le consulter. Heureusement, les Archives nationales ont récemment facilité les démarches. Une fois obtenu, le dossier a toutes les chances de se révéler instructif sur la vie de la famille, en France mais aussi dans le pays d’origine.

Les généalogistes et la guerre franco-allemande de 1870

How the West Was Won in Canada
Fri, December 16 2022: 19:00 UTC
The Canadian west was not won by cowboys and guns. The west was won by homesteaders, NWMP (RCMP), and railways. For a $10 registration fee and a lot of hard work a male farmer could have 160 acres of land. Farmers or want-to-be-farmers came from all over. We will use a couple of case studies, search for homestead records, review all the components to understand what the records indicate, convert the data to enter and locate it on Google Maps, and view what the area looks like today. Other records such as Hudson’s Bay Company and RCMP records will be shown.

Creating a DNA plan for Geoff’s brick wall
Wed, December 7 2022: 19:00 UTC
Despite his best efforts, Geoff Rasmussen’s long standing brick wall hasn’t come down yet. John Williams, born in New York City between 1840-1854, was the son of John Williams. Family tradition says that “he was orphaned at the age of 10 and shifted around until he was 16”. Geoff thinks it’s time to add a little genetic genealogy to his plan. On hand to help him develop this DNA plan is DNA expert Diahan Southard. Join us and learn techniques that you can apply to your own family tree.
