• Short presentation of GenealogieQuebec.com site

    From Denis Beauregard@21:1/5 to All on Thu Feb 4 16:56:48 2016
    https://www.genealogiequebec.com

    The site is based on the purchase of the original genealogical
    assets of Institut Drouin and scanning of their collection.
    But some databases were made separately. Main tools :


    Overall presentation in English at https://www.genealogiequebec.com/documents/keywords.pdf


    Presentation below focus on older records.


    Fichier Lafrance :

    An index to catholic (and some protestant) records of Quebec.
    The catholic records include baptisms and burials 1621-1849
    and marriages to 1915, nearly all linked to images. I think
    the protestant marriages are indexed and linked to images
    up to 1849. It seems some protestant baptisms or burials are
    also indexed.

    Indexing of 1850-1861 is in progress.

    Indexing is supervised by PRDH so more or less the same
    content but the search tool is different. I think the site
    has unlimited search but limited number of images download
    while the PRDH site has limited search (you purchase clicks)
    and no image. Both sites are linked (there is a link from
    Fichier Lafrance to the PRDH database, subcription required).



    Vital records

    Search toosl -> Drouin Collection records

    Most entries are the series made in 1940-41 with catholic and
    protestant records.

    All microfilms by place and parish from the original Drouin
    collection. Usually the church copy for early years, and the
    court house copy for later years. Court house copy only for
    protestant.

    The 1621-1876 entry is the LDS series, microfilmed in 1976.

    Thanks for this outline of the content. It is very helpful. So the content of the Fichier Lafrance has much of the same records as the Drouin Collections, but Fichier Lafrance is a little more complete? I was wondering before your explanation what the
    difference between the Fichier Lafrance and the Drouin Records were.

    The Drouin Collection is the set of images while the
    Fichier Lafrance is an index linked to the same images.
