Description:
The repertory of vital events includes the some 690,000 baptismal, marriage, and burial certificates registered in Catholic parishes prior to 1800. Added to these are more than 20,000 certificates of various other types: census records, marriage contracts, confirmations, lists of immigrants, and so on. The information of the data base is presented in three distinct, but interrelated, sections: a repertory of vital events (1621-1799), a genealogical dictionnary reconstructing the families (1621-1765) and a repertory of couples and filial relations (1621-1799). A search by name which gives references is free of charge. A subscription for a minimal fee is necessary to obtain more detailed information.
