Virginia/Huguenot Origins in France

The following places of origin (in the modern French regions) of many of our Huguenot ancestors have been cited in Baird's Huguenot Emigration to America and The Huguenot, vol. 25. At headquarters we have marked these places, some of which no longer exist, on a modern French map, with an accompanying notebook that gives other related information and sources. This is a work-in-progress; if you have additional information, please pass it on to us, and come check out the map.
