General  Bibliography

The General  Bibliography is based on the sources most frequently cited in the individual bibliographies of volume  XII.  It should not be regarded as providing a complete list of background materials for the history of Canada in the 19th century.

Section i describes the principal archival sources and is arranged by country. Section ii is divided into two parts: part a contains printed primary sources including documents published by the various colonial, provincial, and federal governments; part b provides a listing of the contemporary newspapers most frequently cited by contributors to the volume. Section iii includes dictionaries, indexes, inventories, almanacs, and directories. Section iv contains secondary works of the 19th and 20th centuries, including a number of general histories and theses. Section v describes the principal journals and the publications of various societies consulted.

Archives paroissiales.  The most noteworthy holdings of parish archives in Quebec are the registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials, copies of which are deposited at the Archives civiles of the judicial district in which the parish is located [see Québec, Ministère de la Justice]. Parish archives usually contain many other documents, including parish account-books, records of the fabriques, registers of parish confraternities, notebooks of sermons, and sometimes correspondence.

British Columbia Archives and Records Service,

Victoria. In 1975 the archives (referred to elsewhere in volume  XII under its official name until 1  March  1989, Provincial Archives of British Columbia) began a new cataloguing system for its private manuscript holdings. Manuscripts catalogued since then have been assigned Additional manuscript (Add. mss) numbers. Manuscripts catalogued under the old system are gradually being converted to the new one and given Add. mss numbers.

Archival materials cited in volume  XII include the following:

Québec, Ministère de la justice.  The Archives civiles and the Archives judiciaires du Québec, which are under the joint jurisdiction of the courts and the Ministère de la Justice, are now separate repositories as a result of the reclassification of the former Archives judiciaires. They are deposited at the courthouses in the administrative centres of the 34 judicial districts of Quebec. The Ministère de la Justice also has responsibility for the documents deposited in the 82 Bureaux d’enregistrement in Quebec.

Archives civiles.  These archives retain documents for the last 100 years, including registers of births, marriages, and deaths, notaries’ minutiers (minute-books), and records of surveyors active in the district. Earlier documents are held by the ANQ.

Archives judiciaires.  The Archives judiciaires hold the records of the various courts: documents still current, roughly those of the past five years, are at the court-houses; non-current material from about the previous 25 years is placed in one of 13 centres organized by the Ministère de la Justice where some preliminary archival work is undertaken; documents that are more than 30 years old are placed in the regional repositories of the ANQ.

Bureaux d’enregistrement.  The registry offices hold all property titles and contracts affecting real estate: sales, marriages, wills and estates, mortgages, conveyances, assignments, gifts, guardian- and trusteeships.

A list of the judicial districts and registry offices can be found in The Quebec legal telephone directory, ed. Andrée Frenette-Lecoq (Montreal, 1980).
