Hi Sue:

Notre Dame des Neiges Cemetary is associated with the Notre-Dame-Church which is located on Notre-Dame Street in Montreal. Notre-Dame Church is now a Basilica. They have all of the records for the Cemetary although if you have a name you are looking for, you can contact me and next time I am at the Cemetary, they now have a computer that you can see where the plot is and if you have the year etc. I could find it for you. Please note that Notre-Dame Cemetary lists all women by their maiden names whereas the protestant Cemetary - Mount Royal Cemetary which is just adjacent to it lists all females by their married names which makes it hard if someone's husband dies and they remarry and you don't know their married name. Also, it does not necessarily mean because you were Catholic you were automatically buried in Notre-Dame or if Protestant that you were buried in Mount-Royal. Don't assume that just because you may be Catholic that all your ancestors were. I have found that out the hard way by many years of searching the Catholic cemetary only to find the people I was looking for in Mount Royal. Now I look in both places.

Anyway If you need help, feel free to contact me.
Kathryn
