The primary purpose of the French-Canadian Heritage Society of California (FCHSC) is to foster an interest in our common French-Canadian, Acadian, and French heritage by researching our ancestors and helping others research theirs. FCHSC is affiliated with the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS), whose Family Research Library houses one of the largest collections of French-Canadian and Acadian genealogical materials in the United States.
Join FCHSC at the Fall 2013 Meeting
We invite you to attend our Fall Meeting on Sunday, October 27, 2013, when we will once again celebrate our French heritage with food, fun, and comraderie.
During the morning session we will share tall tales and fond remembrances of our favorite French-Canadian cuisine. Attendees are asked to share their favorite family recipes and/or food anecdotes by emailing them to FCHSC (deadline October 1st). Recipes will be compiled into a handout in time for distribution at the meeting.
1921 Canada Census
Did you know that the 1921 Canada Census will be released to the Library and Archives Canada (Bibliothèque et Archives Canada) on June 1, 2013? Prior to this year the records were in the custody of custody of Statistics Canada. But the release of the 1921 records will not necessarily translate to immediate access by genealogists.
During the afternoon session of our Fall Meeting we will discuss the status of the online release of the 1921 Canada Census, including the deployment process, the barriers to success, and the milestones that have been accomplished.
