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.
