General Bibliography   

The General Bibliography is based on the manuscript, printed, and computerized sources which are most frequently cited, usually in abbreviated form, in the individual bibliographies of volume XV. It is not intended to provide a comprehensive listing of background materials for the history of Canada in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.   

    Section A describes the principal archival and manuscript collections and is arranged by country. Section B provides a listing of the Canadian newspapers most frequently cited by contributors to the volume. Section C lists various types of published materials: primary printed sources, including publications of the federal and the various provincial governments; reference works, including dictionaries, bibliographies, indexes, and directories; secondary works of the 20th century, including a number of general histories; and the principal journals and the publications of various societies consulted.

Québec, Ministère de la Justice, Québec. The Archives Civiles and the Archives Judiciaires of Quebec constitute two separate repositories.   

Archives Civiles. Following the reform of the Quebec Civil Code, which went into effect in January 1994, the Archives Civiles from the end of the 19th century to the present were transferred to the Direction de l’État Civil, a central repository in Quebec City under the authority of the Ministère de la Justice. This repository holds civil registers, that is to say, certificates of baptism, marriage, and death. Materials are generally moved to the ANQ when the 100-year rule comes into effect.   

Archives Judiciaires. These archives, which are the responsibility of the courts but are in the keeping of the Ministère de la Justice, consist of the records of the various courts as well as documents deposited with them under various laws, such as notarial registers. Generally speaking, documents still current, those of the last five years, remain at the courthouses; semi-active material from the preceding 25 years is located in one of the 12 pre-archival centres organized by the Ministère de la Justice; documents more than 30 years old and those of historical value are placed in the regional centres of the ANQ.   

    A list of the judicial districts can be found in Relevé alphabétique des toponymes populaires du Québec, Commission de toponymie du Québec, compil. (Québec, 1989).
