QFHS Lecture: Researching Family History in Vermont

The following is a notice from Susan Gingras Calcagni about a forthcoming Quebec Family History Society public lecture.

Researching Family History in Vermont (Free Lecture)
Date         Saturday, April 14, 2012
Time         10:30 a.m.
Location   Briarwood Presbyterian Church Hall, 70 Beaconsfield Blvd, Beaconsfield, QC, H9W 3Z3
Visit         www.qfhs.ca
Presented by  Ed Maquire, President of the Vermont French-Canadian Genealogy Society
Ed Maquire  will discuss the long history shared by Quebec and Vermont. In the 1860s, about almost half of Vermont’s residents were French-Canadian, and many Lower Canada (Quebec) residents, living close to the US border, married in Vermont. Mr. Maguire will talk about the type of records available, such as church, immigration, naturalization, court, and military records, and explain where to find them.
Members and guests are welcome to join us!
