Montreal: Quebec property records, Oct. 20

Many special interest groups, genealogy societies and historical societies have already realized that property and land records are valuable documents. Some of these groups are involved in major projects, such as using such records to reconstruct Eastern European villages.

Closer to home for many Tracing the Tribe readers, the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal, in association with the Jewish Public Library, will present "Uncovering Mysteries with Property Records - Hidden Landscapes of Quebec," at the next meeting on Tuesday, October 20.

The presenters will be Gary Shroder and Sharon Callaghan of the Quebec Family History Society (QFHS).

Callaghan has written various articles for genealogical and historical societies across Canada, while Schroder, who has served as president of the QFHS since 1995, is also a member of the Special Advisory Board of Library and Archives Canada.

The meeting begins at 7.30pm in the Gelber Conference Centre, 5151 Cote Ste-Catherine/1 Carré Cummings.

The JGS of Montreal also holds Sunday morning Family Tree Workshops.

  1. I was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction. My great great aunt lived in Montreal at 3722 Rue St. Dominique...which according to google maps is now a parking lot...go figure hehehe. Is there a way I can search online (I am in Chicago) property records that might show who lived there when there was a house there...hoping of course that she owned the house. I have some border crossing docs from when my great great grandmother, Fannie Lucas, went to visit her and both of the documents have differnt last names. Her first name was Minnie and the names listed were Mimzender and Misenberg. My uncle (Fannie's grandson) thinks the name was Mitzenberg. If anyone could help me on this, I would appreciate it. I am also looking for any death or cemetary records. I am not sure were to look for Canadian info, so excuse the ignorance. Thansk in advance!
