Until the 1760s, the official military forces in Québec were made up of soldiers and sailors from France. From 1763 to 1870, the official military forces came from Great Britain. For information about their records, see the "Military Records" sections of the Canada Research Outline (34545), France Research Outline (34715), and England Research Outline (34037).

Under both the French and British governments, able-bodied men were required to serve in a local militia. There are some lists of militia members. A list of militia members for the War of 1812 is in:

  • Index des miliciens, 1812–1814 (Index of Militia Members During the War of 1812). [Sainte-Foy, Québec, Canada]: Archives nationales du Québec, 1983. (On 11 FHL fiche 6334280.) Text in French. Lists the names of 4,900 men who received land warrants for military service. Includes regiment, residence, and occupation.

Brief biographies of militia officers in the War of 1812 are in:

  • Lépine, Luc. Les officiers de milice du Bas-Canada, 1812–1815 (Lower Canada's Militia Officers 1812–1815). Montréal, Québec, Canada: Société Généalogique Canadienne-Française, 1996. (FHL book 971.4 M2l.)

The Family History Library has very few records of military personnel who served in the wars of the 20th century. Copies of their service records must be obtained from the sources listed in the Canada Research Outline (34545).
