We are complex beings with qualities, sometimes gifts, but also weaknesses. All our genetics come from our parents, grandparents and all the previous generations. A beautiful mix!
You like to work the land, you have a gift for music, singing, you are good with your hands, you are sociable, you play tricks, or you are rather lonesome? Which of your ancestors was a musician, a singer, a farmer, an entrepreneur?
Knowing our ancestors allows us to know ourselves better.
L’Association des Archambault d’Amérique has a database on the Heredis genealogy software that includes over 40,000 individuals. Read the article News from the Genealogy Committee for more details.

If you want to do your own research, here are some tips and links to genealogy sites that will help you in your research.
The first step in genealogical research is to consult and become a member of the historical society in your area. A true collective memory, historical societies make their textual and audiovisual documents available to researchers and curious citizens. Subscribers can benefit from their expertise and advice.

The road to knowing our ancestors can be long and winding. We don’t know where it will lead us, but our persistence will be rewarded by the discoveries made along the way.
