Riviere-Ouelle: Une Paroisse Canadienne au XVII Siecle

riviereouellebookrectangle-001

One day I was on my knees in a cramped, second-hand book shop in the east end of Montreal. What was I doing there? I was rummaging through a slighly damp, crumpled cardboard box shoved up under a metal shelving unit. Under a pile of old French cathechism books and church notices, I noticed an ornate red leather binding sticking out. It turned out to be an original copy (1890) of Abbe. Casgrain‘s “Une Paroisse Canadienne au XVII Siecle – La Riviere-Ouelle” – a parish history covering the Riviere-Ouelle of the 17th century. The book is a treasure trove of historical and genealogical information as well as anecdotes. Leafing through the pages gives you some real insight into the French Catholic rural world of the late 1600s. From time-to-time I’ll be sharing selected portions. For today I’ve scanned a few of Abbe Casgrain’s tables which highlight the family names of the original settlers of Riviere-Ouelle.
