Online Resource: In Quarantine: Life and Death on Grosse Île, 1832-1937

Ships in quarantine at Grosse Ile, near the city of Quebec, Canada.
Watercolour by H. H. Manvers Percy (1817-77)


Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the launch of In Quarantine: Life and Death on Grosse Île, 1832-1937, a project funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage through its Canadian Culture Online Program.

Featuring a variety of documents preserved and digitized by LAC, such as lists of births and deaths at sea, hospital registers, journals, letters, photographs and maps, this virtual exhibition tells the story not only of the quarantine station, but also of the individuals who experienced life on the island.

Immigrants at Grosse Île, a database containing thousands of digitized documents related to individuals who lived on Grosse Île, is now available through this website.

You are invited to visit the site at:
The contributions of many LAC staff were instrumental in the success of this project, and their efforts are much appreciated.

LAC also wishes to thank Parks Canada for its participation and full cooperation in the creation of this virtual exhibition.
