Book-on-CD Edition

These books contain transcriptions of the parish records for St. Finnan's Roman Catholic Church in Glengarry County, Ontario. Incuded are transcribed extractions of baptisms/births, marriages, and burials/deaths plus historical information about the parish, its founders and more.

After the removal of Bishop Alexander Macdonell to Kingston in 1829, the Roman Catholics of the rear of Glengarry petitioned him to divide the parish of St. Raphael's and establish a new one at Alexandria. This request was acceded to. A church was built on the present site of St. Finnan's Cathedral and the first mass was said there on Christmas Day 1832 by the Rev. John Macdonald, commonly known as "Father John".

Successive priests were Reverend Fathers Clark, Begley, Alexander Macdonell, McLachlan, Chisholm and, 0'Connor, afterwards Dean of Perth. The latter was succeeded by the Rev. Alexander Macdonell, who was born in the Township in 1833, educated for the priesthood and ordained in 1863. For sixteen years he was parish priest of Lochiel and was appointed to Alexandria. He was energetic and so inspired his parishioners that on the 22nd day of September 1883 a contract was signed for the building of a new church. On the 15th of March 1884 the new St. Finnan's church, now the Cathedral, was dedicated. In 1886, Father Macdonell was elevated to the position of Vicar General.

NOTE about print quality:
GlobalGenealogy.com 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.
