Passion for genealogy often rhymes with history. What I like most about working on my Vermont Project is definitely what I can learn while researching. You may know about American and Quebec history timelines, but the story is quite different when it comes to remote localities. You need to dip into the regional, political, and cultural history. For instance, I was baffled when I read about the Ku Klux Klan targeting French Canadians in New England—including Vermont—in the 1920s because they were Catholics. And who would have thought that so many French Canadians fought in the Civil War?
