We are very pleased to be one of the few sites offering fully searchable versions of Cyprien Tanguay’s Dictionnaire Genealogique des Familles Canadiennes and related research. These documents provide authoritative historical evidence regarding the individuals who settled French Canada and are referred to in this document.

We strongly recommend using the Tanguay texts in your genealogical efforts.
