Québec Genealogical Societies

A time will come when you will need information that is kept at the local level, such as confirmation that an ancestor is buried in a particular cemetery etc. Getting hold of locally held information is not easy when you live miles away from the location. When you know where a person lived, the local associations are best placed to help you. Most genealogical and genealogical societies attempt to preserve documents and history for the area in which they are located. They offer different services. Here are some URL of associations and some which provide links to other websites.
