For New Yorkers of French-Canadian descent

New Yorkers who trace their ancestry to French Canada may be enlightened by Michael Leclerc’s article about the famous Filles de Roi and their profound influence on family history. He notes that “almost every living descendant of the early French colonists can trace their ancestry back to at least one of the Filles de Roi.” In fact he counts 104 Filles de Roi among his own ancestors.
