What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection includes guardianship records from 1639 to 1930. This collection contains images and indexes of guardianship records. Québec notarial records are written in French. In Québec, notaires or notaries have registered contracts since 1626, including guardianships and other probate records. Guardianship papers or tutelle et curatelle, are records about orphans and the conservation of their property. Each document in a notary's minutes gives at least the name of the notary, the date and place the document was prepared, the names and addresses of the persons involved, and the names and addresses of the witnesses. The ages and relationships of the witnesses and the persons involved are sometimes included. More information about this collection is in the Quebec Notarial Records or Canada Notarial Records article.

What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

I Found Who I was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Use the information you have found to find the person in census records
  • Church Records often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900

I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking for, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This can help you find possible relatives
  • Search the records of nearby areas
  • Check for other names. An individual might appear under an unexpected name for a variety of reasons:
    • They might have been listed under a middle name, nickname, or abbreviation of their given name
