28 442 baptism, marriage and burial records have been added to the LAFRANCE, one of 15 tools available to GenealogyQuebec.com subscribers.

Now that the indexing of Quebec’s pre-1862 Catholic parish registers has been completed, the focus of our indexing efforts turns to the parish registers of Ontario and Acadia available in the Drouin Collection Records, as well as Quebec’s Protestant baptisms from 1760 to 1861.
