This group meets online.

The French Canada Ancestry Special Interest Group (SIG) meets at least quarterly.  We discuss topics of interest in French Canada as well as Acadian genealogy and history.   

Check the GFO Calendar for meeting topics.  We have a speaker lined up for January, and welcome suggestions for upcoming meetings.  SIG meetings are free and open to the public.
