Book-on-CD Edition

Duncan (darby) MacDonald U.E., now deceased, was an active member of the Clan Donald society in Canada when, in 1992, he undertook the task of transcribing all "births" [baptisms], marriages and "deaths" [burials] of Scots and Irish recorded in the parish registers of Notre-Dame de Montreal Roman Catholic Church. What he sought were records of families who later settled in and near Cornwall/Stormont in Ontario (Upper Canada) or were related to those families. MacDonald also noted that he included parish records of "some family names of English, German, French, etc origin which your author/editor felt would be of interest". That means that Mr. MacDonald did not do a complete transcription, but focused on the many families that complimented his personal research interests. It is important for those considering purchasing this book to refer to the index to ensure that the records you seek are included. The Index is available here.

The bulk of this work includes transcriptions of baptisms, marriages and burials that were produced on a typewriter. The print is clear and very useful. There are 6 pages near the beginning of the book titled "copies of interesting entries". Those six pages include poor-quality photocopies of a few entries from the original registers - some are readable, others not so much. Thankfully those entries include a legend with a corresponding type-written explanation of each.

As we were preparing this book for reprinting it was immediately noticeable that a goodly number of events recorded here are for people from, living in, or going to places distant from Montreal including present-day Ontario, United States, and overseas.

About Notre-Dame de Montreal:
    "When it was founded in 1642, the village, then known as Ville-Marie, had its first wooden chapel inside the palisade at Pointe-à-Callière, today the site of Montreal’s major archaeological museum. Dedicated to Our Lady the Blessed Virgin – “Notre Dame” – the small original chapel was operated at first by the Jesuits. Then came the Sulpician Fathers, who in 1657 undertook construction of a larger church. The Sulpician François Dollier de Casson was its architect, and the present-day Notre-Dame Street served as the original site. Its construction, in Baroque style was completed between 1672 and 1683. By 1800, Dollier’s church had become too small, and the Fabrique decided to build the church we know today. To design the new church, the building council engaged the services of the New York architect James O’Donnell – himself an Irish Protestant by origin. O’Donnell and the Fabrique opted for the Gothic Revival style then in vogue in England and the United States. The main construction work took place between 1824 and 1829"...
