Hi folks. If you find the files below particularly useful please consider donating via Paypal to our local non-profit all volunteer animal rescue site Ahimsa Haven. I've been volunteering there since 5/2013 but they've been around much longer than that. We recently opened a newly renovated facility in Templeton MA and were featured in the Gardner News. Every little bit counts. Thanks.
- Quebec National Library: The online books are of great interest to the French Canadian researcher but what are probably of greatest interest are the genealogical books by Cyprien Tanguay which document lineages up to the mid to late 1700s. If you can trace your lineage to someone in these books then you've just added hundred of ancestors to your tree. Most of the lineages that I have looked at seem to be correct but you should verify with the actual records because I did run into the occasional error. The files are available here for download in PDF format. Most of the actual records can be found in the Drouin Collection at the pay site Ancestry.com.
