Quebec Archives

BAnQ (Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec) has several on-line databases available. It will be very helpful if you either know how to read French or know someone that does. French is the official language of Quebec. The initial descriptions are in English. However, much of this material is in French. Here's a list of searchable data I found on their genealogy page:

Register of interments in Mount Hermon Cemetery, 1848-1904
Parish censuses of Notre-Dame-de-Québec
Tutorships and curatorships in the judicial district of Montréal, 1791-1807

Beauce, 1862-1947, Charlevoix, 1862-1944, Montmagny, 1862-1952,
