A database is being built of all gathered data from the parish registers of old Quebec. By systematic attribution of baptism, marriage, and burial certificates to the respective individuals – a "family reconstitution" made on the basis of names and family ties – people are identified and their biographies established. PRDH’s data base, covering the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, thus contains the personal history of the Quebec ancestors of all French- Canadians. The PRDH is housed at the Demography Department of the Université de Montréal.
At this time, images of the parish registers (Drouin Collection) upon which the PRDH (The Research Program in Historical Demography) are based, are available on ancestry.com.
