Genealogy HowTo - Can I Trust That Source?
Your eyes grow wide, your pulse quickens and you exclaim, "I have finally found it!". There it is, the break in that 25 year old brickwall. You have finally found the parents of an ancestor which will extend at least that part of your pedigree one more generation and perhaps open it up to further discoveries. But wait are there sources listed that prove the relationship and are they reliable?
The rule of thumb for testing the reliability of a genealogical source is to ask the question, "How close to the event in question is the source, who created the source, and for what purpose was the source created?"
Ask Us - Canadian Genealogy Online - Part 10a - Quebec Research Resources
Part 1 of Canadian Genealogy Online contained a general overview of how to research your Canadian ancestors and gave several links to online records. It included a description of when Censuses began
to be recorded for each of the Canadian provinces and links to the online Canadian Census images and name indexes. Part 2 and Part 3 explored online resources for genealogy research in Alberta and British Columbia and Part 4, 5, 6, and 7 listed resources for Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador Research, and Nova Scotia Resources. Part 8 focused on Ontario online resources. Part 9 presented online genealogy resources for Prince Edward Island. Because of the many facets of genealogical researching in Quebec, this article will be presented in three parts.
Research resources for other provinces will be presented in future newsletters.
