French-Canadian Genealogical Society of Connecticut
The French-Canadian Genealogical Society of Connecticut, located in the Old County Courthouse on the town green in Tolland, Connecticut (Exit 68 on I-84), is dedicated to collecting, preserving and disseminating genealogical and historical information about our ancestors who settled in Quebec and Acadia and their descendants. Our focus is on the genealogy of people of French-Canadian and Acadian heritage who settled in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and throughout New England, though we also have information about other areas of the United States and Canada.
At our library in Tolland, you will find numerous resources to trace your family history back to the founders of New France and Acadia. In addition, meetings, seminars and other events provide more opportunities to learn. The Connecticut Maple Leaf, our society's journal, provides valuable articles and information to our members.
Our Library Hours Are:
Monday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Members are entitled to full use of the library during regular hours, including borrowing privileges. The fee for one-time use of the library for non-members is $5, which may be applied to a membership later. Become a member today or stop by the library and join us on a trek back in time to the New France of our ancestors.
