Genealogists with French-Canadian, Acadian or French ancestry often encounter the need to understand a few words or phrases in the French language.  Living in Vermont also provides opportunities to visit repositories in Quebec as well as the ancestral homes of our forebears. Marc Juneau will cover some basic French vocabulary as well as some standard grammar in this 90 minute presentation. It will include a bit of “travel French” to help us understand road signs, read maps and avoid getting lost. Two optional sessions on Tuesday afternoons will also be offered for those who wish to continue their French instruction beyond this introduction. Classes at the Vermont Genealogy Library are $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Classes run from 10:30 to noon.  The library is located on Hegeman Ave, Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester.  Parking and entrance are across from the State Police. Visit our website www.vtgenlib.orgor call 802-350-1333 for more details.
