If you need help proving your native line, our researchers can do a search of our records for your native line for a minimum fee, and we are the ONLY organization that provides you with all the results of this search so you know who your ancestors are and can share this information with your family. Our researchers each have extensive experience with genealogy, old script, and can speak and read French.
If you prefer to supply the information yourself, you would need to provide us with the following:
parents' names in legal records for each person in the ancestral line (people born after 1920 generally need to obtain a long form birth certificate) - Note - you must provide proof that links each generation to the previous one, supplying both birth and marriage records for each person in that line
photo of applicant (head and shoulders showing their full face) - photo booth or digital photos are acceptable, so long as they are large enough and the person can be easily identified (at least 300 ppi and 1.5 x 2 inches in size)
photos must be accompanied by the signed declaration form included in the application
