Notary Records of Quebec

Notary records are another good source for discovering information on your ancestor. They are the civil legal records that are sometimes a good substitute if a marriage record is missing. For examples on civil marriage contracts vs. church marriage records see: “Marriage Contracts: A Comparison” by Carol Hamp & James P. LaLone, in MICHIGAN'S HABITANT HERITAGE, v. 8 #2 (Apr 1987), pp.27-41, it includes a listing of published Inventaires of Notaries. The following sites give background on Notary records -
