Bienvenue! Welcome!

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 our Spring 2016 Meeting
(Réunion de Printemps)

We invite you to attend our Fall Meeting on Sunday, April 3, 2016, when we will once again celebrate our French heritage with food, fun, and comaraderie.

“Why Detroit?"

Speaker Doug Miller will highlight the lives and contributions of influential French-Canadians who settled and/or pioneered lands surrounding Detroit (Fort Pontchartrain) and other areas of Michigan and the Midwest. This is the third in a series of programs detailing areas settled by French-Canadians in the United States. Please join us as we trace the migrations of these early settlers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

On-site Research Using FCHSC Resources

During the afternoon session meeting attendees can take advantage of our French-Canadian Research Team's extensive experience and make use of the library's in house and online resources. All library resources such as PRDH, LaFrance, and Ancestry.com will be available for use by attendees during this time period.
