If you think you might have an ancestor who fought in the Civil War, or are of French-Canadian descent it is not very difficult to earn these pins.  Four different pins have been created by our Society.  One pin is awarded for proving your ancestor knew Samuel de Champlain.  The second pin is awarded for finding a marriage between a Filles du Roi (daughter of the King) and a Soldats du Carnignan (soldier) in your ancestry.  The third pin is for finding an Acadian ancestor and the last pin is the Civil War pin. Sheila Morris will take you through the process involved for each. Classes are $10 and run from 10:30 a.m. to noon.  The library is located on Hegeman Avenue, Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester.  Visit our website vtgenlib.org or call 802-310-9285 for more details.
