Les Filles du Roi

Filles du Roi Project
A sub-project of the Quebecois Project

Our mission is 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, women sent from France who were specifically subsidized by the king to become wives of the men settling New France.
