Hôtel-Dieu & Université de Montréal

In Reply to: RECORDS from Unversity de Montreal. by PJ Mathon of 1963

- - The University of Montreal has put on-line ALL Catholic acts (births, marriages, deaths) plus other civilian acts (like notary and census) for the period 1608-1799 - a monumental task. Fee = CAN$20 (US$13.75) for max. 30 days access.


The Hôtel-Dieu-de-Québec, the oldest hospital in Canada, founded in 1639 by the Religieuses Hospitalières de la Miséricorde de Jésus, is still in Old Québec City (inside the fortifications). The "Registres des Malades", a manuscript of the people who were hospitalised including names, origin and how long they were in hospital, is really a useful document; it tells you the date of their arrival in New France and aboard which ship. The "Registres des Malades" can be found on microfilm. The Hôtel-Dieu was not only for the poor, as there were no private hospitals in Canada. All the services back then were free, and still are today.
