My Filles du Roi Certificate and Pin

In a previous post, I mentioned that there are 34 Filles du Roi in my Hogue/Girardin ancestry. Recently I applied to the American-French Genealogical Society  for a certificate authenticating my descent from one of these brave women. Although this blog is dedicated to my paternal ancestors, I decided to apply for the certificate based on one of my maternal ancestors, Marie Jeanne Toussaint.
Here is my certificate.


And my pin.

And here’s my descent:
1-Marie Jeanne TOUSSAINT (abt 1652-1708)
+Noel CARPENTIER (abt 1643-1728)
2-Noel CARPENTIER dit NOEL (1697-1788)

3-Noel CARPENTIER dit NOEL (1726-1756)

  1. Very neat, indeed!!

  2. I was googling my ancestors, Marie-Jeanne Toussaint and Noel Carpentier and found your blog. I see we are descended from the same people! I sent in a few weeks ago for my Filles du Roi certificate and pin and am looking forward to receiving it!
