Nos Origines is a website with genealogical information on approximately 1 million people with Canadian and France ancestry. Don LaCross and Lou Izzo will discuss its features and value based on their years of experience using it and adding to its records. The entries in NosOrigines.com must first be verified by the administrators insuring a high degree of accuracy and users can contact the staff with questions about the data. The site is free and can be accessed in both French and English.

Information in the database includes name, occupation, dates and locations for births, baptisms, marriages and burials. Searches can be performed by surname, full name, keywords or record ID number and there are over 19,000 surnames to search for.

If you have French-Canadian ancestry this is a very valuable tool and you may very quickly find it indispensable.
