Wisconsin's Early French Habitants - Jo Bartels Alderson and Kate Alderson Rennert. This new work concentrates on an often overlooked portion of North American history--the French exploration and "settlement" of South Central Canada and North Central U.S., namely the state of Wisconsin. The book follows the path of French explorers like Champlain and La Salle, and establishes, in a very comprehensive format, the true weight of French influence in North America. The second section supplies the reader with extensive and well documented genealogies. The third section is a list of French names in early Wisconsin, including "The Old French Cemetery at Prairie du Chien," "First Settlers in Green Bay" and "Before the War of 1812, Principal Families in Green Bay." (1998), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, 222 pp. 101-A0895 ISBN: 078840895X
