La Société des Filles du roi et soldats du Carignan, Corp. (SFRSC) --

a non-profit corporation dedicated to these women and men who played a major role in the growth and settlement of New France.


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.
