Maple Stars and Stripes

If you have French-Canadian roots, I highly recommend the new podcast by Sandra Goodwin called Maple Stars and Stripes. She not only examines the types of records we encounter with our French-Canadian research but also language tips. Her language tips alone have given me ideas of where to go next with my brickwall maternal 2nd great grandmother, Delia Pacquette/Pockett Sharrow.  Check out her website, www.maplestarsandstripes.com , for the show notes.  You won’t be disappointed!!


  1. Thanks, Denise. I'm thrilled that you are finding the information so useful. Hope you'll let us know when your brick wall is in the dust and how you smashed through it!!

  2. Thanks Denise for posting. I have been very reluctant to touch any of my Canadian ancestors because I don't know where to start. I will definitely check out Sandra's podcast and let all my friends know about it who are also doing Canadian research.
