Franco-American Genealogy with B.J. Jamieson

  • Date: October 26, 2020
  • Time: 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM
  • Location: Franco-American Collection, Lewiston

On Monday October 26, 1 pm-2 pm, B.J. Jamieson, the Maine State Library’s genealogy librarian, will present a webinar on basics of genealogy with a focus on Franco-American genealogy research. Interested in your family’s story? Find out how to start to trace your ancestors’ stories, with a focus on resources that are most helpful for Franco-American families who settled in Maine.


B.J. Jamieson is the genealogy reference specialist at the Maine State Library, as well as serving as the genealogy interest group chair for the Maine Library Association. She holds an M.S. in library science from Clarion University as well as a postgraduate certificate in genealogy from the University of Strathclyde.


We hope you will join the Franco-American Collection in a warm welcome to the second of our mini-series presenters this fall! There is no fee for the programs which are made possible by a generous grant from the Québec Delegation in Boston. The Delegation has shown itself enthusiastic in supporting Franco-American initiatives. 

The third in our series will be a memoir-writing program with Denis Ledoux. Ledoux’s Zoom talk will be held November 2 at 1 PM.
