Project: Filles du Roi

Categories: Filles du Roi Project | Filles du Roi



Welcome to the Filles du Roi Project - WikiTree's Project to create biographies and genealogies for the approximately 750 French women who emigrated to New France (Canada) between 1663 and 1673 as The King's Daughters, wards of France who would become wives of the men settling New France.

How To Join

To join the project, send a message to Erin Breen, the Project Leader, so she can add the badge to your profile.

Once you are a member, be sure to add the Filles du Roi tag to your G2G feed for updates on what we need help with and updates about our progress.

How To Help

You can check our administration tags for profiles that need a bit of extra research or attention - Filles du Roi who need biographies, profiles that need sources, and profiles in need of cleanup. When you are finished, remove the category tag from the profile.

For Filles du Roi who don't have profiles yet, check one of our lists of Filles du Roi to see who is unlinked. After you add a profile, please input her information into the table, and contact Erin to have the profile project protected.
