Good start, but now very dated   (2013-06-06)
The 5 volumes published in 1982 was an excellent start to the CHARTIER genealogy. Since it has been 30 years since publishing, it has become quite dated, as both Jean ROBERT and the "American section" aka: Vernon CHARTIER, and a host of interested genealogists have kept a continuous update of the original volumes over all those years.
Recently, the four volumes (II - V) showing genealogy have been merged into a master database and published to the web. See: <a href="http://www.ChartierFamily.org">www.ChartierFamily.org</a>
It would be impossible to re-publish the original volumes as they have grown too large. Volume II, for instance, was about 500 pages in 1982. Now it would exceed 3,600 pages! Volume III has grown from <200 pages to nearly 1,000.
Another advantage of the web site is that registered members can update their lineages. Also, the site includes many photographs for those registered.
