La Société des Filles du roi et soldats du Carignan, Inc.

More About Our Ancestors

Below are selected articles on our ancestors that previously have been published in the society's journal Sent by the King. They have been chosen by the President and Webmaster of the society as being of general interest to individuals seeking more information about their French Canadian ancestors, the filles du roi and soldats Carignan, in particular.  They have been republished here with the author's permission.

Please return to this page periodically, as we plan to add a couple of new articles to this webpage each year or so.
