Individuals with French-Canadian roots will soon get the chance to explore their ancestry at St. Boniface Library.
The library, located at 100-131 Provencher Blvd., will hold a session exploring the subject on Sun., April 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. The program will be presented by Jayne Paradis.
Organizers say participants do not necessarily have to be able to read French and note that researching French-Canadian ancestry is aided by the fact that people of French-Canadian descent tend to have well-documented ancestors.
Participants will learn about notarial records and why they are a valuable source of information, as well as find out where to find civil and church resources and census returns.
