More detailed information about research and records of Québec is in:

  • Boudreau, Dennis M. Beginning Franco-American Genealogy. Pawtucket, R.I.: American-French Genealogical Society, 1986. (Family History Library book 973 D27bo; computer number 479066.) Prepared for speakers of English who know little French, this brief book includes sample genealogical documents from Québec and tells how to read them. Includes a list of useful addresses and English translations of French Canadian occupations (job titles).
  • Faribault-Beauregard, Marthe, and Ève Beauregard-Malak. La Généalogie: Retrouver ses ancêtres. (Genealogy: To Find One's Ancestors.) [Montréal, Qué.]: Les Éditions de l'Homme, 1987. (Family History Library book 971.4 D27b; computer number 471855.) Text in French. This is a reliable, readable discussion of Catholic sources for French Canadians in Québec and other areas. Appendixes list addresses of societies and repositories in North America and in France.
NOTE: All of the information from the original research outline has been imported into this Wiki site and is being updated as time permits.
  • Jetté, René. Traité de généalogie (Treatise on Genealogy). Montréal, Qué.: Les Presses de l'Université de Montréal, 1991. (Family History Library book 971.4 D27j; computer number 687322.)
