English speakers

Hi and welcome on Généalogie 101 blog !

I created this page for English speakers who may be looking for their ancestors on the old continent. Maybe are you an American of French descent, or a Canadian whom ancestors had to flee to the New World ?

You most probably ended up here after browsing the web on genealogy general topics, or maybe you were looking for some help on how to navigate the dark maze of French archive system ?

Regardless of the reason why you are on this website, I can try to help you with the following:

  • General inquiries about genealogy;
  • Questions about how genealogy works in France and a few other French speaking countries (e.g. Switzerland);
  • Questions about the French archive system, where to look for which kind of information;
  • Translation of documents (French <> English);
  • Recommendations on books, videos, tutorials;

Should you need any of the above, please feel free to contact me using the below form.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
