Browsable Tree

The Browsable Tree or personal genealogy is a database available as a CD-ROM. Your immediate family and ancestors are presented with family sheets and links between generations are clickable through grand-parents or children in a family. This genealogy is prepared using a database (Genealogy of the French in North America or GFNA) built for years by a well-known genealogist from the more reliable data in the genealogical field. The browsable tree uses the same presentation. This work is a good gift if you want to present your family to your children or if you want to know if your ancestors participated to historical events like foundtation of Québec or Montréal.

While the male line would give you about 10 generations (depending on the date of arrival of your ancestor and years between generations), the browsable tree may include ancestors by the thousands.

Many products are available in that category.

  • Basic research of all possible ancestors (main product)
  • Research of cousins (cousins, uncles, aunts, etc.)
  • Detailled tree (birth and death data, other children in each family)

A family sheet will look like this one but the details depend on the work requested.

A family sheet begins with a reference number, then data about the parents : name of the father and his parents, link to them, date and place of marriage, name of the mother and her parents, link to them, source of the marriage data. Each marriage record celebrated in Quebec between 1621 and 1940 can be supplied (fees depending on the quantity). Then, there are the children and a bibliography relevant to that family.

Research of ancestors

This research includes the marriages of your ancestors until they arrived in Quebec or Acadia, except for dead ends. Research is made in Quebec records, so if you have one or more generations in rest of Canada or USA, we presume you may provide this information. Further information may be added for a fee, like relatives, baptisms and burials or dead ends,

Information required

Genealogy research is based on couples. A usual starting point is the name of your parents or grand-parents and place where they were living. Other dates and places may help, like baptisms, marriages or burials. Also, keep in mind we focus on Quebec records but in some cases, data is available for other places.

Dead Ends

Some times, there is no record. For example, the place of wedding is unknown or there is no record at all. Then the research is more complicated and may require more time. While there is no guarantee some information is found, more time to search could lead to the evidences needed for the next step. Depending on the situation, search can be extended by paying for more hours.


A typical research for ancestors and looking at some dead ends, finding more about your family, will cost $500. Some time, we may offer a reduced rate. For example, no dead end research, no relatives included, look for a royal or Native ancestor, no copy of the GFNA database, or special promotion.

On the other hand, you may want to know more about your Quebec relatives or you may need some specific information.

Hour rate is $20 for genealogical research. Fee to open a new case is $10.
