If you have French-Canadian ancestry you are likely to have one or more King’s Daughters (Filles du roi) or Carignan soldiers among your ancestors. In fact, you might find that your ancestral lines include many of these women and men! You are invited to explore these pages to learn more about these pioneer seventeenth-century emigrants from France. We also provide links to other genealogical resources for those with French-Canadian ancestry. Our aim is to support individuals in their efforts to explore their family history through research and in their use of sound genealogical practices. Here on our website, you will find well-researched information on these men and women. Previous issues of our society's journal are available as PDFs in the members-only section.
We hope that what you read here will spark an interest in learning more about your ancestral heritage. If you are not yet a member, we encourage you to join the SFRSC.
Update on the Film Les Filles du Roi
We have been following the progress of the musical, Les Filles du Roi, since we first interviewed Julie McIsaac in the Fall 2018 issue of Sent By The King. She is the co-bookwriter, co-lyricist and actor in the musical.
In the Fall 2023 issue, we announced the award-winning musical had been turned into a film and was premiering across Canada and the U.S. We will continue to keep you updated on the film’s distribution.
You can also host your own community screening. The application is on the film’s website.
This is a link to the film’s website. A list of premiere locations is available.
Here is a link to the trailer:
