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 quarterly journal, is included as part of an annual membership in FCHSM.
In an effort to reach as many people as possible, all of our in-person meetings are free and open to the public. Pre Covid 19, our meetings were held at the Mt Clements Public Library; the Library is currently undergoing construcion. Currently, we have been holding Zoom Meetings. 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.
