The development of Genealogy Quebec‘s collections continues today with the addition of numerous images and files to the website’s databases. These new documents come in part from Planète Généalogie, which was acquired by the Drouin Institute a few months ago.
34 775 baptism, marriage and burial files have been added to the Kardex tool. You will find them under the 01_Fiches BMS/Familles/ folder, which you can browse with a subscription to GenealogyQuebec.com at this address.
These files list baptism, marriage and burial records celebrated in Quebec as well as in Ontario and the United States. For now, these files are limited to a few families.
Dictionnaire Jetté (Jetté Dictionary)
2852 files produced by René Jetté during the creation of his famous “Dictionnaire Jetté” were added.
Genealogy Quebec subscribers may browse the “Dictionnaire Jetté” as well as these files in the Drouin Miscellaneous Collections.
Registres, Actes découpés
Some 15 913 images have been added under the “Registres, Actes découpés” folder, which can be found in the Drouin Collection Records. These images contain the parish registers of Ste-Louise-de-Marillac de Montréal (1951-2016) as well as St-Barthélémy (1940-2010).
These documents can be viewed with a subscription to Genealogy Quebec in the Drouin Collection Records section.
