One of my favorite ethnicity-specific web sites is The French Genealogy Blog at http://french-genealogy.typepad.com/genealogie/
The author is a transplant to France with no French roots of her own. Her children are French. She sprinkles a delightful outsider-yet-insider point of view over all of her posts.
A professional genealogist, Anne generously shares French resources and her vast and growing knowledge of same. Her thoughts about the locations she visits in France, French bureaucracy, French laws, and French genealogical societies are clearly and colorfully described.
I learn something new nearly every time I read this blog. Researchers of their French ancestry and lovers of French culture are equally likely to find education and enjoyment in Anne’s posts. I encourage you to visit her soon.
