ST-LAURENT genealogy

Généralities

Genealogical research in progress:

- We are working on my family tree (families ST-LAURENT, PLOURDE, HEPPELL, BLANCHET)

About 1650 persons in database. This work of course led us to Pierre LAURENT, first immigrant who came in Quebec from France. 

- Census of all Pierre LAURENT's descendants to create and publish a search aid. At this time we have about 2800 persons (all ST-LAURENT, excluding spouses) in database from 1690 till about 1900, including more than 1500 marriages. We collect data from birthday, wedding and burial acts, and also all interesting documents such as notary acts.

Note: the english part of this website is condensed (I haven't been able to translate all). Please refer to the french part for more details. It should be improved in the future. Thank you.

Documents used

We look for information in birthday, marriage and death records, notary acts and census. We try to use the more primary source possible, i.e. microfilms which are exact copies of original acts, but we also use books (compilations).

More than birthday, wedding and burial acts, we also search in notary acts. We can find in, land concessions, land sales, wedding conctracts, testaments, inventories, donations, life annuities, exchanges, receipts. These documents make us able to confirm data and give us a lot of information on our ancestors life at differents times.

We have copies of about 600 notary acts relative to ST-LAURENT family. Some are transcribed from original (in french). They are available on request, if the person can be identified.
