As someone who does not specialize in French Canadian genealogy I was not very aware of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society, other than knowing they existed. It turns out they are in Manchester, NH and kindly let me visit today to use their online databases. (A downfall to travel is finding a local library with access to the databases you don't subscribe to.) They are staffed by very friendly and helpful volunteers, have a large bank of computers, and have numerous records for researching Acadians in Canada or the U.S., Franco-American genealogy (think Paul Revere), and the French-Canadians who worked in large numbers in mill towns like Manchester and Lowell, New Bedford, & Fall River in MA during the 19th & 20th centuries (think Jack Kerouac.) Their street address is not on their web site, in part because they are soon to relocate from a Blessed Sacrament parish schoolroom to one of the historic mill buildings a block or two closer to the river. If you cannot make it in person, they will research for you for a fee. If your Early American or Mayflower genealogical trail disappears for a generation or two, then re-emerges, especially in a state bordering Canada, don't forget to check there. More than a few Americans sojourned for a while in the Great White North.
Dr. Maura Mackowski is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
