History[edit | edit source]

The County of Arthabaska was a municipal county of Quebec that existed between 1855 and the early 1980s . The area is now part of the region Centre-du-Québec and is divided between the MRC of Arthabaska and l'Érable . Its capital was the town of Arthabaska, now merged with Victoriaville . The county name comes from that of the canton of Arthabaska, itself derived from the word cry ayabascaw meaning "where there are reeds, rushes" . --Wikipedia

How to Find Birth, Marriage, and Death Records[edit | edit source]

Usually vital records (birth, marriage, and death) are found in civil registration and church records. In Quebec until 1900, civil (government) registration was kept by the churches, with a duplicate provided to the government. There are three ways to access these records:

1) church records in the Drouin collection, available online,
2) civil register duplicates of church records in the Quebec Library and Archives system, and
3) the records of the Family History Library (FamilySearch), online and microfilmed.

Civil Registration in the Quebec Library and Archives[edit | edit source]

In Quebec, the civil registers of births (baptisms), marriages and deaths (burials), which date from 1621, were duplicate copies of the church registers. This third source all of the pre-1900 records can be consulted at each of the nine regional offices of Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec.

  • Only the person named in the record or that person's legal representative may have access to civil registration and civil copies of church records after 1900. Direct descendants qualify as representatives.

See also Quebec Civil Registration, for information on published vital records.

Church Records: The Drouin Collection[edit | edit source]

Among other records, this database includes all the church records for the province of Quebec, that is, for the Adventist, Anglican, Apostolic, Baptist, Christ Church, Christian Brethren, Christian Missionary Alliance, Church of Christ, Church of England, Church of Scotland, Congregational, Episcopal, Evangelical, Free Church, Greek Orthodox, Holiness Movement, Jewish, Lutheran, Methodist, Romanian Orthodox, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Protestant, Russian Orthodox, Salvation Army, Unitarian, United Church, and Universalist denominations.  The types of records include baptisms, marriages, and burials as well as confirmations, dispensations, censuses, statements of readmission to the church, and so on.  They are written mainly in French, as well as English, Latin, and Italian.

For more information, see The Drouin Collection: Six Databases.

The FamilySearch Collection[edit | edit source]

FamilySearch has microfilmed the entire collection of civil records in the Quebec Library and Archives.

Online Databases[edit | edit source]

Many of the parish (church) records have been digitized and posted online. They are only partially indexed, so browsing the original records is more effective:

Microfilmed Church/Civil Records[edit | edit source]

All of the church/civil records have been microfilmed by FamilySearch.These microfilms may be ordered for viewing at Family History Centers around the world. To find a microfilm:

a. Click on records for Canada, Québec, Arthabaska. You will see a list of available records for the county.
b. You will also see above the list the link Places within Canada, Québec, Arthabaska. This will take you to a list of towns in the counties, which are links to records for the specific town.
c. Click on any topic. Click on the blue links to specific record titles.
d. Some combination of these icons will appear at the far right of the microfilm listed for the record. FHL icons.png. The magnifying glass indicates that the microfilm is indexed. Clicking on the magnifying glass will take you to the index. Clicking on the camera will take you to an online digital copy of the microfilm.
