Our family tree – The Tree of Life – has been a major source of encouragement for providing our members an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our ancestors who planted the seeds from which we grew.
Be a Part of the Excitement!
French Canadians and Acadians of New England have a unique signature in the genealogical world. The close proximity to our ancestral home brings us closer to our roots than most other foreign ethnic groups of this region of the United States.
- Within a day’s drive we can walk the land and speak the language of our ancestors.
- Through the act of genealogical research many of us have re-connected some of the ties that were broken when our ancestors left their native lands of Quebec, Nova Scotia [Acadie], and Ontario, seeking a better life for future generations by immigrating to the United States.
Now we have an opportunity to pay homage to these tenacious, hardworking ancestors. You can be a part of the excitement too! It is your help, your participation in the growth of ACGS that motivates your officers and committee chairs to take bold steps to bring you the tools to make those connections to the past and provide the links for future generations.
