Review Cards are handwritten, many are cursive and hard to read.

Cards are often based on marriage repertoire and a small set seem to be corrected. Some mistakes. I have even seen some marriages with the good parents in the Bleu Drouin and wrong ones in the Histor File (checked from original records).

Availability Rare. At least: Montreal (Salle Gagnon, SGCF) and Longueuil (Grignon library). Price: $ 15 000 (the 4 series). You may contact the Webmaster if you are interested to purchase it
Example Click here (this is a typical Quebec card)

Select a series, then a card. The cards are sorted by family name, then spouses. In some cases, you have to check for other spellings.

A card has usually the name of the couple and their parents, the date and place of marriage, and if available, the date and notary for the marriage contract ("ct" and not repeating what is given for the religious record). The cards also include the children and their date of birth.
