Subject: [CanShipsPre1865] Irish in Quebec, census records online
Date: Tue, 3 Jun 2003 10:30:49 -0400
Thanks to Janice Copeman, Olive Tree Genealogy now has a
new set of records online.
These are census records for Quebec from 1825 to 1861.
Janice has extracted the names of Irish families for 1861,
but the earlier records contain all ethnic groups.
Quebec was formerly known as Canada East and Lower Canada,
so you may see reference to those terms.
If you have ancestors who came to Quebec then went on to
other areas, you may find reference to them in these
records. Many immigrants to USA for example, came in by
way of Canada (often to Quebec) as it was much cheaper than
sailing directly to an American port.
Today I finished and uploaded 1825, 1831 and part of 1861.
I still have 1851 for St. Gabriel and St. Catharines as
well as 1861 St. Gabriel to do. As a little extra, Janice
has transcribed the 1912 Tax Assessments for Valcartier, so
that will go online with the next group of records.
These are the direct links to get to each census. Remember
to let each page load completely, then start looking down
the page til you see the names.
