The Storied Province of Quebec, Biographies, Volume 5
The Storied Province of Quebec, Biographies, Volume 5. William Wood. (1932)
Originally published as a four volume set by the Dominion Publishing Company in 1931, a fifth volume was added in 1932.
The biographies comprise fully 3 of the total five volumes in this set and the complete index of biographies in volume 5 provides guided access to over 9,000 individual names - being members of more than 1,500 families. We have, however, noticed that the index is not exhaustive. It provides entries for only those having the same family name as the main subject, but not for others related to the family by marriage, and so appear in the biographies bearing their own family name.
In addition to the written biographical / historical details there are approximately 350 full page, high quality, portraits of the biographical subjects.
The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
