Daniel Jaros

Quebec Certified Genealogist

Daniel Jaros got the genealogy bug in 2008. A self-educated genealogist and an avid reader of books on the subject, he surfs on the Internet to increase his knowledge on the subject matter and regularly visits the Québec Archives on Viger Street, in Montréal. In 2012, he earned a GFA*. He is founder at MEMINI genealogies, company for which he has conducted numerous mandates of research, publishing his findings in about 30 books written specifically for his clients. His specialty is French Canadian ancestry and nothing appeals more to him than solving brick walls or complex 19th-century cases for which he can draw upon his historical and geographical knowledge of Québec. He has also conducted research on French, English and Italian ancestry. A strong communicator, Daniel knows how to share his passion and he was solicited by several media to demystify genealogy for the general public. Member of the Montreal-based Société généalogique canadienne-française (SGCF) where he has been volunteering at their library since 2013, he has also participated in numerous special events such as La Nuit de la généalogie, organized by the SGCF in February 2016 and March 2017, during the Festival Montréal en Lumière.

* GFA: généalogiste de filiation agréée or Certified filiation genealogist, title earned from the Bureau québécois d’attestation de compétence en généalogie.
