Finding Ancestors on Ships Passenger Lists to New France
| In the early 1600s, colonists recruited in France settled in the Saint
Lawrence valley and Acadia. This was the
beginning of New France.
The territory of New France extended from Hudson Bay to the mouth of
the Mississippi (including Louisiana)
and included Newfoundland and
all the land from Labrador to Maine.
In 1760 New France was conquered by England and surrendered in 1763,
except for Louisiana which went to the
United States in 1803. The term New France was no longer used after 1763.
