The Oakland County Genealogical Society will meet tonight, Tuesday, February 3, 2009 at 7:00 p.m.
Ms Gail Moreau-DesHarnais, editor of the French Canadian Heritage Society of Michigan journal Habitant Heritage, will be our speaker. “Basic French-Canadian Research using modern methods, including mtDNA and YDNA”, is the topic for her presentation. She will share some of the newer resources for documenting your French Canadians, including those on the Internet. Ms Moreau-DesHarnais also will describe, in non-techy terms, how she has used DNA testing to enhance her family research.
The Oakland County Genealogical Society meets at 7:00 p.m. monthly from October through June on the first Tuesday (except January) at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 5500 North Adams (between Long Lake and Square Lake roads), Troy. The Church has a flat entrance and ample lighted parking.
Meetings are open to the public and free of charge. All are welcome. You can find out more about OCGS on our website.

This book has been 7 years in the making, and contains tombstone transcriptions of all cemetery sections.
