MSS-032-Franco Heritage in Salem, Massachusetts

Maple Stars and Stripes fleur-de-lis logoOral histories are a window to the past. Two Salem State professors take us on a journey back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries to the Salem Franco community of the Point. We learn about life in this ‘Little Canada’ and how the Great Fire of 1914 affected the community.

In Language Tip #32, we look at the sounds of the letter G and its effect on surname searches.

And there is a special offer for those researchers who struggle because they can’t read French documents. Be sure to listen to the end.
