THE reference in genealogical research all around Quebec and neighbouring provinces and states.


A word of caution

The data of our BMS database have been collected by our societies from a variety of sources, some of which could be questionable. Continuing efforts are spent to correct inconsistencies but it always will be an unachieved objective. Consequently, the reader should use the data to orient his research toward official sources, such as national archives, notary documents, registers...

ENever should a BMS2000 record be considered a substitute for an official document. The Groupe BMS2000 Inc. should not be held accountable for the inaccuracies of its records, neither could it be held responsible for unwanted uses and consequences of its inadequate record collection.

If you detect an error in our database, please fill in the appropriate record correction document, mentioning the source of your request for correction.

Incomplete records

Some records are incomplete, especially outside the country, mainly for the non-catholic documents where the parent’s names are often forgotten. Many sources have not been re-edited or have disappeared, causing relative scarcity of pre-1900 records for non-catholic population, save for the gazette records of this period. Nevertheless, for the time being, we have made the decision to publish these incomplete records.
