Anyone looking for information about ancestors who were active in Baptist Churches in Quebec between 1794 and 1967 will appreciate Jacques Gagné’s latest compilation, which tells you which records exist and where you might find them.

Jacque’s compilation is divided into Quebec cities and towns, including Berthier, Sherbrooke, etc. Researchers with ancestors in Quebec can look up the town in which their ancestors lived and see how many Baptist Churches were in that town and where the records for each church were sent.

The records that still exist are divided between twelve different repositories with locations throughout Quebec, in Ontario and in the United States. Jacques provides links and addresses for each repository so that researchers can contact the repository directly to look at records online or  make arrangements for a visit.

Historian René E. S. Péron summarized the history of the Baptist religion as an introduction to the compilation so that researchers can get a sense of how decisions their ancestors made influenced the lives we live now. René’s article was posted on the blog last Thursday.

  1. Our local Baptist church but 1845 has been handed over to a so called community org for $1! No consultation. In the deed of sale it is stated that the building has NO historic or cultural value of any kind! It is the Olivet Baptist church! Stone! Classic! They will make it into a multi story hang out with sky lights and steel and plastic interior! Why is no one paying attention???
