This post is also available in: Français

25 000 newspaper obituaries were added to Genealogy Quebec‘s Obituary section in May, bringing the collection to a total of over 700 000 death notices.

These new obituaries come from across Quebec and are dated, for the most part, from the 21st century.


Newspaper obituaries can be browsed in the Obituary section on GenealogyQuebec.com, which contains most of the obituaries, memorial cards and headstones available on the website. It is divided in 4 sub-sections:

  • Internet obituaries, which contains obituaries published online from 1999 to today.
  • Newspaper obituaries, which contains obituaries from newspapers published between 1860 and today.
  • Tombstones, which contains pictures of headstones from hundreds of cemeteries in Quebec and Ontario.
  • Memorial cards, which contains tens of thousands of memorial cards published between 1860 and today.

These subsections are indexed and can be browsed using a search engine. You will find more information about the Obituary section on the Drouin Institute blog.



Genealogically yours,
