Although the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic pose new challenges, the activities of the Drouin Genealogical Institute continue through teleworking.
Our indexing and digitizing efforts have allowed us to reach a new milestone on Genealogy Quebec, with now over 46 million images and files available on the website. This is another important step in our efforts to preserve and share the genealogical heritage of Quebec and New France, which wouldn’t be possible without our subscribers. Thank you!
Additionally, the indexing of parish registers from Ontario and Acadia is well on its way, with some 5920 baptism, marriage and burial records added to the LAFRANCE this month.
Here is an overview of the additions made for each parish:
|Parish name||Type of record||Date range||Number of records|
These records can now be browsed in the LAFRANCE, which also contains ALL of Quebec’s Catholic marriages from 1621 to 1918, ALL of Quebec’s Catholic baptisms and burials from 1621 to 1861 as well as ALL of Quebec’s Protestant marriages from 1760 to 1849.
You will find more information about the LAFRANCE on the Drouin Institute’s blog.
To conclude, we would like to wish you and your family health, safety and courage in the context of the health crisis we are experiencing. We hope that genealogy may bring you some joy during this difficult period.
