SFRSC - About Us Thank you for your interest in our heritage organization. Our group was founded in 1994 by amateur genealogists, members, and former members of the Canadian section of the Genealogy Bulletin Board on the Prodigy on-line service. The purpose of La Société des Filles du roi et soldats du Carignan is to honor the memory of our courageous ancestors, the filles du roi (King's Daughters) and the soldiers of the Carignan-Salières Regiment of 17th century New France. We wish to foster a sense of pride in our common French Canadian heritage, to encourage the study of the history and culture and the practice of genealogical research, and to promote related educational goals. Currently, members discuss this topic on-line on Prodigy, AOL, CompuServe, and other locations on the Internet.

Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections Most people enjoy treasure hunts, especially genealogists and family historians. Librarians love to help people seeking information, and seeking to learn. Reference librarians are getting adept at pointing family history researchers to a range of free online databases. Put these together and you get the Vancouver Public Library's just completed genealogy contest. More than 100 people sent in answers and the VPL gave a book prize, Finding Your Canadian Ancestors by Sherry Irvine and Dave Obee, to five people drawn from the 75 fully correct entries.

Library & Archives Canada: Censuses Census returns are official Government of Canada records that enumerate the country’s population. They are an invaluable source of information as they often include the age, occupation, ethnic origin, religious denomination and the place of birth for the persons listed. For each census, the records are arranged by province or territory, and then are divided into districts which usually correspond to counties and cities. index These pages have been designed with the aim of recording, and increasing knowledge about, the genealogies of the current and former ruling families of Africa, Asia and the Americas. Unlike their European counterparts, genealogical information on these families is sparse and inadequate. This is the case, even though many of the dynasties are more ancient than most of the European dynasties that are so amply covered in genealogical works. I hope you will find that this small attempt to redress the balance contributes to your knowledge and enjoyment and makes a small contribution towards historical knowledge. Many of the ruling families, particularly those of the princely families of India, Pakistan, Indonesia and Burma, have ceased to rule or have been prohibited from playing officially recognised roles in national life.
