FrancoGene - Denis Beauregard, professional genealogist

Hour-paid research

The purpose of hour-paid research is to perform a deep research on one or many cases.

Here are some typical cases:

  • Solving a problematic case (in Quebec records)
  • Checking a genealogy
  • Translating records from French to English
  • Performing a research in a genealogical library in Montréal (SGCF, BANQ)

Once the Paypal payment is made, you will receive a message from Paypal. Use it to write your question.

Services not covered

Some services are free. For instances, I helped many persons to find their French ancestor (and many shared their data later). However, if the task is important, I can't do it for free.

Also, there is no charge to correct something in my database Genealogy of the French in North America but be sure to have a reliable source. I consider Tanguay (Dictionnaire des familles canadiennes-françaises) alone as not reliable. If Tanguay has a date different from mine, verify the original record before contacting me.

I can't find the parents if you provide only a name. I received many requests from Americans having as the only data the name of one person, an approximate date, but no place, no parent and no spouse. If the name is common enough (like nearly all families), it is often possible to find many possible records. Also, it is possible the immigrant to USA gave the wrong place of origin or even changed his name to something not related at all.

Information needed

You must supply enough data to make the work possible, but not enough to make me spending your time in revising it or worse sending me in the wrong direction.
