What is the NBMDS tool?

The NBMDS tool contains baptism, marriage and burial files created from the original document recorded in church.
Originally, the tool extended from 1727 to 2011 and covered the Laurentians, the Outaouais and Bas-St-Laurent regions as well as the city of St-Hubert.
We are now extending the period and regions covered to include parts of Ontario and the United States.

The NBMDS is equipped with a multiple field search engine. As with most of our tools, we recommend that you limit your initial search to only a few fields; a family name and the year of the event. If this produces too many results to navigate through, a first name or a second family name should be added.

You may browse the NBMDS tool with a subscription to Genealogy Quebec at this address.
