If you are working on early French/French Canadian, Quebec or Catholic families, referencing Tanguay is a must. This material is published in French.... however, don't be intimidated if you are English speaking. Translation is simple as there are a limited number of categories which are self evident by the content (names, dates etc.). Finding information about specific people is easy. Much of the content is organized alphabetically by surname - however the CD also has digital word/name-search capability. The page examples provided below, display in your web browser. The books in the actual CDs are viewed in Acrobat PDF Reader, providing easy tools to enlarge, reduce, copy/paste, print, etc.
More than 5900 pages (11 books) included on 2 CDs:
- PART ONE
- Genealogical dictionary of Canadian families (7 vols, 4400 pages) - "Dictionnaire généalogique des familles Canadiennes" Originally published in 1871-1890 by Cyprien Tanguay. Every page of all original seven volumes for a total of more than 4,400 pages of genealogical data. [ example page from Vol 2 ]
Volume one lists each of the original immigrants and their families through the year 1700. The remaining six volumes document the vital records of succeeding generations until about 1765. The seventh volume also lists over one hundred pages of surname variations and dit names. While Le Tanguay contains errors, it extends many family lines a generation or two beyond Jetté.
- PART TWO
- Supplement to Tanguay's Genealogical Dictionary (2 vols, 600 pages) - "Complément au dictionnaire généalogique Tanguay" by Joseph-Arthur Leboeuf reports and corrects thousands of errors and ommissions of Tanguay. First published in 1957 it had more than 200 pages with another 400 pages added in 1977. This book is included on this CD under special license from the Societe Genealogique Canadien Francaise.
- Gleanings from the Registers (1 vol, 300 pages) - "À travers les registres" by Cyprien Tanguay, is a work of about 300 pages which contains hundreds of facts that are historically related to ancestors. This information was collected by Tanguay at the time of records perusal for the seven original volumes.
- Directory of Canadian Clergy (1 vol, 600 pages) - "Répertoire général du clergé Canadien" by Tanguay. This work of Tanguay enumerates Roman Catholic clergy members from the beginning of New France to to 1880. This book gives historical and genealogical information of all clerical individuals and parishes where they worked.
