I have used this book by Father Denissen many times over the last 28 years. I find it very useful and most accurate. I have used Father Dennision's information as a spring board to finding and verifing birth, marriage and death information on my ancestors. I marvel at the task he accomplished without computers. He has given me complete generations on many of my lines. If you have French families in this area of the country I advise you to start with these books you will not regret the time you spend searching through these two volumns.

As an amateur genealogist, I am always looking for new resources. Well, if you have family members who have roots in the French families of the Detroit-Monroe, Michigan (River Raisin) area, then you really must see these books. This area was an important part of New France, and French families have inhabited the area since 1701.

This book - in two volumes - contains information on French families and their descendents. There is an entry for each head (male) of each family, including birth and death dates, parents, date(s) of marriage(s), wives and their vital statistics, and children.

Overall, I found this to be a great resource. It contains a great deal of information on families, even those often ignored in other resources that I have seen. Now, as is too often the case with older resources, the author (Fr. Christian Denissen) tended to anglicize names. But, it nonetheless gives you a great leg-up in your research.

So, let me just say that I consider this to be an invaluable resource, one that any genealogist looking into the Detroit-Monroe area must see! I give this book my highest recommendations!

The family information and dates are accurate but I found the anglicization of the given names most annoying. In earlier years a name such as James Chauvin is ludicrous and obviously in error but in later years a name such as Peter Daniau may or may not be the actual name of the person. There is no way to tell from this publication.

I thought I was purchasing the Genealogy of the French Families of the Detroit River Region, 1701-1936, and was so excited to see it when it came. As it turned out it was a skimpy little book that had absolutely nothing to do with the book I ordered. I was absolutely livid, so I contacted the person I bought from and she refunded my money. I'm sure it was a mistake, but I don't know whose mistake it was. Anyway, there is not problem now.
