We start with a couple of interesting facts: 8.3 million Americans (3% of the total population) claimed French ancestry in the 2000 U.S. census, and 2.4 million Americans (0.9% of the population) claimed French-Canadian ancestry.

This book by Dr. David Dobson identifies people of French origin living in the Americas, based largely on documents found in British government records. By the middle of the 18th century, an estimated 15,000 French colonists were living in Acadia, 55,000 in mainland Canada, and 10,000 along the Mississippi River from Louisiana and Illinois. In the Caribbean the main French settlements were in Guadaloupe, Martinique, Cayenne, and St. Dominique. While the main sources on these immigrants can be found in French and North American archives, David Dobson has unearthed references to 1,500-2,000 settlers buried in British records. 102 pages | Published 2011 | Printed Edition
