The Association des Archambault d’Amérique owns a database on Heredis genealogy software, which contains over 40,000 individuals from more than 12 generations back to the ancestor Jacques. This family tree is not published on the Internet, but is on a computer dedicated to genealogy, owned by the Association des Archambault d’Amérique. Entries made before June 19, 2019 come from Ancestry, data accumulated by an Archambault who offered us his family tree to start our tree. To read Ancestry’s Privacy Policy, click here. Entries made in the Heredis tree thereafter come from information voluntarily entrusted to us by our members, information that has been verified as reliable, and is the property of the Association des Archambault d’Amérique, which may use it for genealogical purposes. This family tree is not published on the Internet. Only authorized persons have access.
