Emigration


Emigration to other parts of Canada

Since there are no borders between Quebec and the rest of Canada, there exists no lists of migrants. The genealogist searching for all those who bore his family name must thus use the tools which are available within Canada for this kind of information. For example:

Emigration to the United States

We estimate that nearly half the population of Quebec migrated outside of Quebec between 1850-1900, but a good part of them returned.
