Original church records for Quebec’s 1918 Catholic marriages now viewable in the LAFRANCE
In June 2019, all of Quebec’s Catholic marriages from 1918 were imported into the LAFRANCE. However, the link to the image of the parish document had yet to be added to the record certificates. Today’s update added this link, allowing you to view the original parish document with a single click.

Ontario baptism, marriage and burial records in the LAFRANCE
We are happy to announce that we have begun indexing the parish registers of Ontario, more specifically the parishes that border the province of Quebec, as many French Canadian families settled in that region. These records will be added to the LAFRANCE gradually as they are indexed by our team.
The following parishes have been partially added as of now:
- Alexandria: 1835 to 1861, 3135 records, mostly baptisms
- Corkery: 1837 to 1861, 959 records, mostly baptisms
- Embrun: 1858 to 1861, 194 records, mostly baptisms
- LaPasse: 1851 to 1861, 408 records, baptisms, marriages and burials
What is the LAFRANCE?
