Every Friday we're pleased to offer Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscribers a new bonus webinar just for them! This Friday enjoy a special release of five webinars in a French-Canadian series by Michael J. Leclerc, CG. If you're not a member, remember the webinar previews are always free.
Introduction to French-Canadian Research
Learn the basics of searching for your ancestors in the province of Quebec. What are the building-block records and resources that we use to find our family in La Belle Province.
Quebec Civil and Parish Registers
French-Canadians are lucky to have duplicate copies of records dating back to the earliest settlements. This is why there is little major record loss. Learn how to find records of birth/baptism, marriage, and death/burials.
Quebec Census Records
Quebec has censuses and census substitutes dating back to the 17th century. Find out what information these records contain and how to access them in this webinar. These records are valuable to all those researching ancestors in Quebec, whether French-Canadian or not.
Introduction to Notarial Records
The notarial system was brought to New France in the colonial era. This system for civil law is still used in Quebec today. Discover who the notaries were, how they worked, and the rich resources available in their records. No matter what ethnic background your ancestors were, if they resided at Quebec, they used notaries.
Understanding the Seigneurial System of Land
France introduced the feudal system of land tenure in the colonial era. This system remained in place for more than 200 years, not ending until the mid-nineteenth century. It was used by everyone in the province, not just the French. Learn how the system worked and where to find land records for your Quebec ancestors.
