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

Tracing Your Alberta Connections
Fri, August 19 2022: 18:00 UTC
Alberta is unique among the 10 Canadian provinces. It was the last of the three Prairie provinces to be opened to homesteading, which meant land in that province was available just as quality homesteading land dried up in the United States. That brought a rush from south of the border, and the American influence is still felt today. There has been another mass influx of people eager to work in the energy industry. Many of the key sources used in researching your ancestors or cousins in Alberta are also unique, so local knowledge is essential. This session identifies those sources for you, and will help you get results in your searches.

Shackles, shekels and shrapnel: the exodus to the Southern seas
Wed, September 7 2022: 2:00 UTC
Changes in Britain post the 1776 War of Independence, along with Capt James Cook’s mapping of New Zealand (1769) and New South Wales (1770), led to convicts and marines being sent to Botany Bay in 1787. So began British migration to the Southern Seas. Factors driving various waves of migration (economic, political, family ties, adventure) will be discussed, along with the effects the British Diasporas had on the Aboriginal and Māori Communities and their environment. Tips on tracing those missing down-under branches of your tree will also be covered.
