Most French-Canadian genealogists will find that they have several soldier ancestors who were members of the Carignan-Salières Regiment, a unit sent to the young colony by King Louis XIV in 1665 to protect it from the attacks of the Iroquois. In episode #41, Bill Kane, vice-president of La Société des Filles du Roi et Soldats du Carignan, gives you an introduction to this group of brave men. The Société is also offering a free one-year associate membership, including two issues of their journal, sent by the King. Be sure to listen to the podcast before December 15th for a chance to enter that contest!
In Language Tip #41, we look at the consequence of a little tail, or the C-cédille. There are holiday events to choose from. Dr. Angelini from episode #39 has a request for you, and you’ll hear a story about how family history can lead to forgiveness.
We’ll wrap things up with the results of survey 40, which weren’t at all what I expected, and I’ll introduce survey 41.
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for the person who has everything, I’ll have an idea or two for you. And if you regularly shop on Amazon and would like a way to support the Maple Stars and Stripes podcast without costing you an extra cent out of pocket, there will be links for that also.
There will be changes to the podcast in 2016, and we’ll see you in our next episode on January 12th. Until then, have a very Merry Christmas, and may the New Year bring you the solution to all your brick walls!
