20 YEARS OLD! (Nov 25, 2015)

The Eastern Townships of Quebec are certainly rich with history as well as interesting families. Many of the area's first settlers were Loyalists who had either served in British Regiments by choice or who had suffered in some way by remaining loyal to the British Crown.

Many had lost all they owned and had gone north to seek a new life. Other settlers to this area, especially after about 1795, may have been attracted by the chance to acquire land. In any case, settlement came quickly to the area and its inhabitants produced many descendants, possibly you... 

Genealogists researching the English speaking Protestant families in the Eastern Townships will find there is a wealth of information available. Church records, cemetery inscriptions, census records, etc. are available through a variety of sources. I will not try to duplicate every avenue of research out there.

Let's try to use this as a "meeting" spot, where we can tell each other what's out there for good sources. Feel welcome to let me know what sources have been valuable to you.

Counties Covered:

Arthabaska, Brome, Compton, Drummond, Megantic, Missisquoi, Richmond, Shefford, Sherbrooke, Stanstead and Wolfe.

Please do not send me queries or questions concerning your research. I simply do not have the time to answer specific questions about families or offer suggestions. I am not offering professional research - I'm too busy maintaining websites, working a paying job, spending time with my family, and chasing my own elusive ancestors! You are, however welcome to use the services provided on this website and mailing list.

Good luck on your research!!
