French Canadians Living in Ferrisburgh, VT in 1850

vermont 2016

Welcome to the Vermont Project‘s Work-in-Progress Page for the Town of Ferrisburgh. The 1850 US Census was relied upon to build the list below. Multiple sources will be considered to gather information about the origins of those French Canadians, including other census, church, vital, land and town records, as well as cemetery listings and newspaper articles. Once the identity of a person’s ancestry will have been properly established, an hyperlink will be added to said person’s name through which you’ll be given access to his/her ancestry’s file (such as the one I’ve set up for Charles Tourville).

All findings will be documented and sources will be indicated.

Family insights and photos are welcome!
