French-Canadian Heritage Society of Michigan
The French-Canadian Heritage Society of Michigan (FCHSM) was organized in 1980 as an educational, historical, cultural, and genealogical non-profit organization, committed to make people aware of the rich culture and history of French Canadians in North America. 
  • A subscription to Michigan’s Habitant Heritage (MHH), our scholarly, quarterly journal, is included as part of an annual membership in FCHSM.  FCHSM Members have access to all of our past issues published since 1980 through our website.
  • Membership fees are only $35 per year for U.S. members and $45 per year in U.S. funds for Canadian Members.  See to join FCHSM.
  • In an effort to reach as many people as possible, all of our in-person meetings are free and open to the public. During the Covid 19 Crisis we began to hold Zoom Meetings and have continued that practice for approximately six meetings per year because we are able to have authors and experts from throughout the Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley speak on a variety of topics about the History of New France, the Great Lakes, the Mississippi Valley, Fort St. Joseph, Michilimackinac, and Detroit.  See our Meetings Page for our Meeting Schedule:
  • Our website provides historical and cultural information about New France, as well as Franch-Canadian settlements throughout the Great Lakes and Upper Mississippi Valley. See
  • Our Facebook page is a closed Facebook Page – please visit and join our group by answering the three membership questions:
