QFHS is a federally-registered charity, supported solely by volunteers who help researchers, from beginners to experts, learn about their ancestors and heritage. We are funded by membership dues, fundraising events, and donations
Membership provides a great place to connect with people who share a common interest and to research, record and tell unique family stories about our ancestors who lived in Quebec, Canada, United States, British Isles, Western Europe, and elsewhere around the world.
Your support is important to us. Here is how you can help.

Our membership year runs from August 1 to July 31. Payment received after May 31 will apply to the next membership year, beginning August 1.
