Indexes

The Quebec Gazette was the first newspaper in the province. It was bilingual and sometimes published passenger lists, marriage notices, and other items that are useful in family history research. The Manuscript Division of the Public Archives of Canada created an important name and subject index to the Quebec Gazette:

  • Index to the Quebec Gazette, 1764–1823. Salt Lake City, Utah, USA: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1990. (On 31 Family History Library films beginning with film 1682785.)
