"Registration is now open for our full-day workshop on Quebec Family History on Saturday 16 April. We hope this information will be of interest to you and your colleagues, members and patrons.
This workshop will feature three expert presenters. Gary Schroder, the long-time President of the Quebec Family History Society, will demonstrate how to access and use church and civil registers, as well as census, probate, land, tax and other records to research your Quebec ancestors. Reference archivist Denyse Beaugrand-Champagne will tell us about some of the many archival treasures that can be found at the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec, including judicial records and coroners’ files, as well as resources that are available online. And Ryerson University historian Dan Horner will examine the history of migration into and out of the province and the impact it has had on Quebec culture and society.
We hope you will consider joining us to spend a day exploring the history and genealogy of the people of “La Belle Province”!
