Strategies for Breaking Down Your Brick Wall
A panel of experts will review methods to use in solving your genealogical brick walls. A case study will be presented for everyone to solve.
This program is a prelude to our upcoming Brick Wall Sundays in 2014.
In 1999, we were fortunate in having the
opportunity to publish an excellent article on the well researched line of
René Jetté, John P. DuLong, Roland-Yves Gagné, and Gail F. Moreau. "From Catherine Baillon to Charlemagne." American-Canadian Genealogist 25:4 (Fall 1999): 170-200.
Through the generosity of the surviving authors we have obtained permission to make this article available on our website. To read or download this article, simply click on this link.
Our appreciation to John P. Dulong for making this possible.

Our Building Has Undergone Repairs!
We have embarked upon a substantial effort to repair the outside of our
library building. The major work done is replacing damaged/cracked bricks, re-pointing, cleaning and sealing the exterior of the building.
We have incurred an expense of $100,000 in doing these necessary repairs.
Please help us in our efforts to preserve this facility for future generations by contributing to our fundraising efforts in any way possible. This may be by honoring a loved-one on our Tree of Life or by a monetary contribution to the Society.
Other major fundraising efforts will be announced.
Thank you for your continued support!
