> Please excuse my ignorance - I am hoping that someone could help me by
translating two words that I have come across while reading small
biographies of some of my ancestors who lived throughout Quebec during
the mid 1600's - early 1700's. In reference to land, what is an
"arpent" of land compared to an acre? And what was one "livre" equal to
during the same period of time?
