Quebec City directories 1822-1920

If you have ancestors who lived in Quebec City and area you may find useful information in "Annuaires Marcotte de Québec et leurs prédécesseurs (1822-1920)" now online from BAnQ, the Quebec provincial library and archives. It's described as a mine of information for those interested in the history, genealogy and geography of Quebec City and area.


The earlier years are in English. There is no OCR but as a directory arranged alphabetically it isn't difficult to use, much as similar directories for Montreal which have been online for some while.

Thanks John. I tapped into these directories with some success recently. But I didn't find them when I searched for Quebec City directories on the BAnQ website.I had to use the French term Annuaires.
