Genealogy and Genomics in Québec: Bio-racial Signifiers and the National "Family"
Genealogy, or the study of one's ancestral patri-lineage, has a long and esteemed pedigree in French-Canadian and Québécois history. From Cyprien Tanguay's late-nineteenth century encyclopedias to René Jetté's updated versions more than a century later, genealogy has been an important component of French-Canadian nationalisms.
