QFHS meeting: 8 December

Saturday, December 8, 2012 (Free Public Lecture)
10:30 am to 12:00 pm, Briarwood Presbyterian Church Hall, 70 Beaconsfield Blvd., Beaconsfield
An Insider's View of the Institut généalogique Drouin
Presented by Sébastien Robert

Sébastien Robert, vice-president at the Institut généalogique Drouin, will provide us with a unique opportunity to learn from an insider what the Drouin records offer family historians.

Until the late 1900s, church registers in Quebec were the source of birth, marriage and burial records. Every year, all churches were required to send a copy of their registers to the appropriate courthouse. During the 1940s, these records were filmed by the Institut généalogique Drouin.

Members and non-members are invited to attend and stay afterwards for refreshments and conversation,

Coincides with the BIFHSGO meeting - notice tomorrow.
