In an on-going effort to provide additional educational programs for our members, the AFGS has developed a series of eight workshops that will be presented between July 15 and November 4.

The works shops are made available through an endowment from the LeFoyer Club and the Rhode Island Foundation.

Topics include using the AFGS library and how to read the various repertoires; how to use the microfilm and microfiche in the AFGS library; Les Filles a Marier; things you should know when doing French Canadian Genealogy; and DNA 101.

Special guests will include Peter Gagne from Montreal who will make a presentation on Les Filles a Marier and the King’s Daughters on September 16.

Michael Leclerc, The Genealogy Professor, will speak on the French Canadian Notorial Records and How to Use Them on October 28.

All workshops will be recorded and will be available on our members-only section of our website.
