Many years ago as I was doing initial research into my family tree I came across a list of women who were sent to “New France” to help populate this new land. It is a large list, comprising of hundreds (800+) of women. I made a note in my records for these young ladies when their names appeared in the family tree. But as my database includes not only the descendants of Bertrand Chesnay dit Lagarenne, it also includes the descendants on my maternal side, William Smith and Catherine Black. To top it all off I have the ancestral lines for myself and my siblings on both sides. That is, the parents of my father, and his parent, and then their parents, and so on.. Not to be left out I also researched my mother’s ancestral line, i.e. her parents, then their parents, etc, etc. So I have a substantial database to work with. Approximately 20,000 individuals, almost all blood related.

This produced a listing of 39 names in the family tree that are known as “Filles du Roi”. In English these ladies are known as “The Kings Daughters”.
