ENGLISH CAPTIVES & PRISONERS REMAINING IN NEW FRANCE
Their story of capture and survival in Quebec
Professor Roger W. Lawrence
Publication Date: Summer 2015
Professor Lawrence spent 30 years researching the captives of New England taken during the French and Indian War. Much has been published about these captives but Roger was compelled to find new details from contemporary sources. He has examined, extracted, and translated vital information in marriage contracts for those captives or prisoners who were assimilated into the French Colony. This is an excellent research tool for New England colonial descendants as well as for French-Canadian descendants of these captives. Some of the English ancestry goes back to Royalty and Nobility.

In 1999, we were fortunate in having the opportunity to publish an excellent article on the well researched line of Catherine Baillon: 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.
