The Société de généalogie de l‘Outaouais has compiled several indexes and guides to the marriages, baptisms and deaths of English-language families living in the Outaouais region of Quebec, north of the city of Ottawa and the Ottawa River. They refer to records from both Protestant and Catholic churches in the Gatineau area.
These indexes fulfill an important role because the indexes of people and places on commercial genealogy sites are not always complete or accurate. The local family lineage researchers who compiled these guides did so by visiting the vaults of Protestant churches and English-language Catholic churches.
You can order these publications as spiral-bound books or DVDs from the society. Go to www.genealogieoutaouais.com/index.php?spage=11 or go to www.genealogieoutaouais.com, click on Diffusion and then on Publications.
