I'm doing some research on part of my family that were apparantly fur traders that traveled extensively. They don't appear in the Druin and I can't find their info anyplace but they were in North American earlier then 1730. Someone recently suggested I look up info on trade licenses that were issued but I can't find any info about this. There is supposed to be an article written recently in Nat Geo on French Canadian ancestry that discusses this but I can't find it. Is anyone familiar with it? I can't find it on the Nat Geo site and I'm looking for a date. Thanks for your help.
