Thanks to the hard work of hundreds, if not thousands, of volunteers across Canada and the United States, those of us who were researching our French-Canadian ancestors a decade or two ago were very grateful to have a multitude of repertoires at our disposal. Once we discovered to which parish our ancestors belonged, these repertoires were a crucial first step in filling out our family trees.
They can still be useful today as we take a look at repertoires, including the various configurations adopted by genealogical and historical societies who undertook these massive projects.
Then in Language Tip #17, we explore the sound of OU in French and how to use that understanding to locate your ancestors.

Enjoy, and happy ancestor hunting!
