(Canada) Drouin Genealogy Institute Research Guide #general


Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Drouin Genealogy Institute (Quebec) has a 22-page research guide explaining
the three major databases on its online website to find ancestors. The guide
walks the reader through and uses screen shots to show the results. The free
guide may be accessed at:
https://www.genealogiequebec.com/documents/QcRecGuide.pdf

There are three major databases to help trace Quebec ancestry:

LaFrance Collection: Includes Catholic marriages in Quebec >from 1623 to
1913. Name spelling variations are provided even if searching one name. A
link to the original document is provided.

Men and Women Series: In Kardex provides marriages up to 1940 and includes
both Catholic and non-Catholic marriages and a link to the original record.

1926-1997 Marriage Index: Includes both Catholic and non-Catholic marriages
and a link to the original record.

As posted earlier this year, there are 1.4 million obituaries >from 1999 on
the Quebec Records and can be accessed for free >from over 2,000 Canadian
sources,
