Because of the proximity of Québec and the northern states of America, those of us from the northern US most likely have immigrant ancestors who traveled back and forth between the two. We also find that they often had children in both places. This initial nomadic lifestyle presents a challenge when a genealogist is trying to piece together a complete family. Today we’ll discuss some strategies that may help in this area as we piece together the family of Narcisse Dufort and Malvina Blais with our guest Janine Penfield.
We’ll also look at surnames beginning with DE, DES, or D’, and discuss ways of locating these ancestors in online indexes.
