On the thorny subject of learning French, we had thought to create a glossary of French genealogical terms, to put in a page in the panel on the side. Then we found a few on the internet. As we have said before, we do not like to reinvent the wheel. We found only three that seemed of any real use:
- Family Tree Magazine's French Terms - a single page of months, numbers, and some family terms, a good first step.
- Ancestor Search - French Genealogy Glossary - again, a single page, with almost the same words as above.
- Family Search - French Genealogical Word List - a much meatier offering, with spelling and grammar explanations, and an alphabet on which to click to find a word.
For the sheer fun of learning the language via an American's diary of life in France, there can be no better than Kristin Espinasse's delightful blog, French-word-a-day.
