Liste QUEBEC-HESSIANS

La liste QUEBEC-HESSIANS est dédiée aux soldats des troupes auxiliaires allemandes fournies par les princes d'Allemagne et de Prusse à la demande du souverain britannique George III pour la défense du Canada durant la
Guerre d'indépendance américaine.

Entre 1776 et 1783, près de 2 500 soldats et officiers des troupes de Brunswick, Hesse-Hanau, Anhalt-Zerbst, et une partie des régiments de  Lossberg et Knyphausen des troupes du Hesse-Kassel ont servi au Québec.
Quelques 2 000 soldats ont choisi de demeurer au Québec à la fin de la guerre. La plupart ont marié des Canadiennes-françaises et se sont si bien intégrés à la société que même leurs noms ont été francisés !

La liste QUEBEC-HESSIANS  se veut donc un outil pour tous les descendants de ces soldats auxiliaires allemands à la recherche de leurs origines. 
La liste est une initiative de John Helmutt Merz.

L'administratrice actuelle de la liste est bilingue, et les messages peuvent être transmis en français ou en anglais (ou les deux !).

L'inscription est gratuite.

QUEBEC-HESSIANS Mailing List

The QUEBEC-HESSIANS List is discussing those auxiliary soldiers who were supplied by German princes to the British King George III for the defence of Canada during the American Revolution

Between 1776 and 1783, over 2 500 troops of the Brunswick, Hesse-Hanau, Anhalt-Zerbst, and part of the Lossberg and Knyphausen regiments of the Hesse-Kassel troops were stationned in Quebec. At the end of the war, close to 2 000 chose to stay in Quebec and most of them married French-Canadian women.
The integration went so well for many of them that even their names were « translated » to french !

The QUEBEC-HESSIANS list is a fine tool for the descendants of those auxiliary soldiers in search of their origins. The list was initiated by John Helmutt Merz.

The current list administrator is bilingual, therefore all messages can be posted either in french or english (or both !). Subcription is free.
