Cornell University Libraries: Digitized Books – Quebec

Historic Books Online

Just saw a notice that Cornell University has digitized ~700,000 books and are offering them free online. With that in mind I did a quick search on “Quebec” for historic books (still working on that KERR brick wall).

There were no less than 2,666 hits for “Quebec”  Lots of good fodder for a genealogist.  Narrow down the search a bit by adding another search term, in this case “Quebec” + “maps”.  There were 18 hits including historic maps.

When I searched on “Compton” +”Quebec” one of my favourite historical books for that region popped up “The History of Compton County

Below is the link to the notice.  Have fun!
