Société de généalogie et d'archives de Rimouski
Description:
The Société de généalogie et d'archives de Rimouski was founded on 13 August 1979 under the name Société généalogique de l'est du Québec (SGEQ). Its objectives are to organize, promote and sponsor genealogical, historical and cultural activities and events; to make an inventory of sources relating to local heritage and to protect and study it; to organize and hold conferences, meetings, exhibitions for the promotion and accessibility of genealogy. The Société de généalogie et d'archives de Rimouski (S.G.A.R.) is without doubt one of the most technologically advanced of the genealogical societies in Quebec with its three Web sites, one of which is devoted exclusively to the promotion of genealogy with its numerous databases (www.genealogie.org). The second site deals with the society’s activities, and gives general information (www.genealogie.org/club/sgar/) and the third site promotes genealogical tourism in the area (www.genealogie.org/forfaits/).
