Maple Stars and Stripes fleur-de-lis logoAre you planning a trip to France? If so, take along your ancestors’ hometown information so you can visit and make it a truly memorable experience.

A listener wrote in asking about the reliability of the Fichier Origine database. She had found some intriguing information on her ancestors’ origins and was hoping she could rely on its accuracy.

So in this episode, we will take an in-depth look at the website of the Fichier Origine as well as that of its coordinator, Marcel Fournier.

In Language Tip #24,  you’ll find translations for all those French words that refer to family relations.

And finally, it’s time to celebrate. Happy Birthday to Maple Stars and Stripes! MSS is celebrating the completion of one year of episodes. We hope you have found it useful in breaking down a brick wall or two!
