Québec Online Historical Directories

Expand your research by checking out the Québec Online Historical Newspapers here.


Links to directories at the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) lead to a page of browsable links for that particular directory. If you wish to do a search in the directory, or in many directories at once, use the directory search engine located here.

Links to directories at New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) are to the images themselves, which are browsable.  Non-subscribers will not be able to view these. Non-subscribers can, however, use the search engine and see a listing of possible results (but no images or further details).  To search by keyword, go to the Digital Archive & Library search engine on this page (it is the second search box).  For more information on how to access subscription websites, read Number 5 on my FAQs page.
