Many of Maine’s French speaking communities can tie their roots back through Canada to France. Names like Morin, Trepanier, Theriault and Bouchard all straddle both side of the border. If you’re interested in Franco-American research, you may be interested in attending Roots 2015 in beautiful Montreal, Quebec. This is a 3 day international conference on family history in the Quebec area being held from June 19-21 on the campus of McGill University. For those of us not fluent in French, we’re in luck. Roots 2015 is described as the largest English language genealogical conference held in Quebec.
