The American-Canadian Genealogist is the official journal of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society and a major benefit of membership in our society. Regular segments include messages from the President and the Editor, Book Reviews, From Other Publications, Queries, New Members, and Étoile d’Acadie. The journal is intended to be informative, educational, and your link to the past. The focus of articles is on Acadian, French-Canadian and Franco-American family history and genealogy. Because of the diversity of our readership, we try to include articles about Québec and Acadia and the migration of these people from all French Canada and Acadia into New England, New York and any other area in North America where descendants of New France settled.

It is the editorial board’s goal to maintain this level of quality and to incorporate useful information for the ever-changing needs of the membership. If you have an idea for an article, or an article that you have already written, please send it to the Society via e-mail to email@example.com.
If you are submitting an article that has been published in another genealogical journal or on a web site, please give the credentials for us to give proper credit to the first publication. If you are submitting the same article to several publications at the same time, please let us know. Conversely, if you give permission to other journals to publish one of your articles that has appeared in the American-Canadian Genealogist, kindly ask them to mention our journal as the first publisher. Permission to reprint your article is yours to give, not the editor’s.
