A King’s Ward may be part of your family tree! Learn how to trace your matrilineal lineage. Certified Genealogical Researcher (CGR) Gabrielle Dussault will explain the interest of matrilineal genealogy and how it is done.
Traditionally, genealogists trace the lineage from father to son, whereas matrilineal lineage documents ancestors from mother to mother, over the generations. This work highlights the importance and contribution of women in family history and takes a new look at these female ancestors. You will be fascinated by the possibility of discovering unexpected relationships with other families, from different regions.
During this Mother’s Day weekend, participate in an activity in which they take the place of honour!
Conference in French presented at Maison Saint-Gabriel in collaboration with Société d’histoire des Filles du Roy.
