- What’s New in Our Library?
The American-Canadian Genealogical Society is now a Family Search affiliate library. This designation means that library patrons will have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through FamilySearch.
Family Search Affiliate Status Update…
As a Family Search Affiliate Library, we will no longer order films for clients, but we now have access to thousands of films previously not available online on all of our computers!
Research Collaboration with the Vermont French Canadian Genealogical Society We are pleased to announce a collaborative research agreement between the American-Canadian Genealogical Society in Manchester NH and the Vermont French-Canadian Genealogical Society in Burlington VT. This effort should help to break down your “brick walls” involving ancestors that migrated between New Hampshire, Vermont and Canada. Research services are available through our organization at https://acgs.org/research/services and at the Vermont French Canadian Genealogical Society at http://www.vt-fcgs.org/research.html . The Vermont Society has been very active in preserving Vermont Diocesan records. Visit http://www.vt-fcgs.org/diocese_pres_vct27feb2004.html for more details.
Our library is now featuring on-line access to AmericanAncestors.org, the web site of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. With access to thousands of databases, American Ancestors provides a rich resource for genealogy reseach. Of particular interest is the access to the Massachusetts Vital Records – 1841-1920. Please see http://www.americanancestors.org/databases/ for a complete listing of databases available.
Lucie Leblanc Consentino with information supplied by Stephen White has brought to our attention an error that exists in the St-Basile-le-Grand, Madawaska, New Brunswick Marriages Repertory that we offer for sale. (RP012)

The transcriber entered Francois Pellerin dit Baron under BARON rather than PELLERIN. It should be entered under PELLERIN.
The transcriptions show Francois Pellerin’s mother as Euphrosine Pelletier, where in fact, it should be Victoire Pelletier;
The transcriber shows Francois Pellerin’s family as coming from St. Roch where in fact he was from Riviere-Ouelle;
The transcriber shows the bride Olive Leclerc’s family as coming from Riviere-Ouelle whereas they were from St-Basile.
Source: St-Basile Parish Registers, f. .25, M.4 in the Drouin database.
These errors were brought to light because of the better access to parish registers that is available today. Our apologies to those who were mislead by these errors. Our thanks to Lucie and Steven White for the corrections.
The American Canadian Genealogist
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 letters to the editor, messages from the President and the Editor, Book Reviews, From Other Publications, Queries, New Members, Étoile d’Acadie, and our Readers’ Forum. Visit our Genealogist web page to find out more about this great member benefit, and download a free sample issue. Back issues are available through our catalog.
Our Publications Department has released its 152nd publication. Through the department’s tireless efforts, genealogists will benefit from the parish records that have been copied, transcribed, proofread and compiled into well organized repertories. We are releasing many New York repertoires with many hard to find records.
Please check our catalog page often for these new offerings.
