Genealogy Research in the Eastern Townships

genealogiedesCantons-de-L'est

La Société de généalogie des Cantons-de-l’Est is another important genealogical society that collects information about the marriages, baptisms and deaths of English language families of Lower Canada and Québec, whether found in binders, books, CDs or  online downloads.

Often these guides were compiled and researched by local genealogists or historians who visited the vaults of Protestant churches and English language Catholic churches.

As a long-time researcher in family lineage searches in Québec, I can attest to the accuracy of most of these various compilations, regardless of whether they cover the various Protestant denominations or of the Catholic faith.

Dedicated and persistent family lineage researchers in Québec working at various repositories of the Archives nationales du Québec (10 such archives exist) have referred to these precious indexes during the last ten or more years to identify the church where a child was baptized, in which church young couples were married or the burial place for a person or persons.

Some of the guides I particularly recommend from La Société de généalogie des Cantons-de-l’Est, http://www.sgce.qc.casgce@libertel.org are:
