I have been contacted by a journalist working for TF1, the French television channel. She is looking for French families to participate in an upcoming program « Grands Reportages » concerning “French diasporas.”
Specifically, she is looking for French families who, as part of their genealogical research, are trying to connect with descendants of their ancestors who emigrated to Canada or to the United States more than a century ago (between the 16th century and the beginning of the 20th century). This could be by a connection made during a « return to our origins » trip, organized by a local genealogical group, or during a family reunion, marriage, anniversary, etc. She is exclusively looking for families considering or planning reunion events which will take place in Canada or in USA.
How you can help ? Do you know of anyone who might fit the profile she is seeking ? If, by any chance, you, or someone you know, have been contacted by anyone in France for information about possible descendants in Canada or the US or if you know of any French families who are trying to connect with or find information about US or Canadian descendants, please contact Eugénie Cohen, either by phone: +33 (0)6 87 12 26 58 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact Eugenie by November 15, 2018. If you have questions about this research, feel free to contact Eugenie, who does speak English, or you can email me.
