Genealogy of the French Families of the Detroit River Region by Rev. Father Christian Denissen. 
 
The Detroit Society for Genealogical Research has recently converted The French Families of the Detroit River Region by Rev. Fr Christian Denissen into a digital format. This work is being made available for personal research to our members. The copyright is owned by the Burton Historical Collection and it is with their permission that DSGR, as the publisher of the work, is able to place this on our site. This publication was initially a Bicentennial project of the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research and the Burton Historical Collection of the Detroit Public Library. This project has been approved by the Detroit Bicentennial commission as an authorized Bicentennial project. 
 
The index is now available to the general public: Denissen Index.
