Notre Dame Du Rosaire Roman Catholic Parish Registers 1869-1925 in 3 Vols (Crysler, Ontario)
Compiled by Duncan (darby) MacDonald

The books in this three volume/part series contain transcriptions of the Notre Dame Du Rosaire Roman/Our Lady of The Holy Rosary church registers. The church is located in Crysler, Ontario which is in Finch Township, Stormont (part of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada. Information includes transcriptions of Baptisms, Marriages, Burials and other information of interest to family historians.

The name of this Mission or Parish at Crysler, Ontario was not reported nor recorded in the first two registers. Some of the earliest burials are recorded as being at "Cemetery of St. Mary" (Crysler). However, until 1899, the parish was most commonly known as Notre Dame Du Rosaire.

An 1899 memo proclaims the Blessing of the corner stone of the new Church building as "Our Lady of The Holy Rosary". Rev. William McKinnon, an English speaking priest who was the Pastor at the time of the official naming of the new church in 1899, may have decided on the English version because the majority of his congregation were English speaking at that time.

The parish register transcriptions are broken into three parts/volumes, distinguished by date range:
  • Part I Notre Dame Du Rosaire Baptisms, Marriages, Burials 1869-1895 Crysler, Ontario

NOTE about print quality: acquired MacDonald Research Centre after the passing of its founder and primary transcriber/compiler, Duncan MacDonald. We are pleased to make his books available under the new MacDonald Research imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by Mr. MacDonald, without corrections or additions. Modern technology helped us reproduce the original work in as-good-as, or better quality as that which was originally published. Much of MacDonald's original work was created on a typewriter. His well-worn "masters" were made on a photocopier. We've cleaned them up as much as possible without re-keying all of the content resulting in books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were orignally published.
