 Notarial Records
Notarial records exist only for the province of Quebec. They are private agreements written by a notary that took the form of contracts such as:
  • marriage contract;
  • inventory;
  • lease;
  • engagement;
  • obligation;
  • will; and
  • sale.
Marriage contracts provide information on the spouses and their parents. They were usually drawn up a few days before the religious ceremony. The Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec holds the notarial records.
