Review

Those microfilms cover the court house copy of the vital records, that is the copy sent each year to the court house of the district.

Those are copies from original records. Some can be hard to read because of handwritting, ink that traversed the paper, etc. Some records have an index, while for other you have to read or even analyse records one by one.

Availability

At least: Montreal (ANQ, Salle Gagnon). Possible purchase from FFSQ (Federation des familles souches du Quebec)
