Our Staff

We are a volunteer staff of experienced genealogists with a penchant for research and are fluent in both reading and speaking French.

Our Resources

Our Canadian holdings are both in book and database form and span from church records to French Canadians who fought in the American Revolution. We cover the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario

We have U.S. church records and vital records for most of New England in books, on film, and online.

ACGS is an LDS affiliate library. Research clients may order films that will come to our library for review by the Research Department.
