Microfilms of Québec civil status information from the 17th century to the end of the 19th century. For our region, we have the registers of a few Témiscamingue parishes for the period from 1894-1899 (one reel only).
Microfilms of the federal censuses: partial resources for some years after 1800 and full resources for 1901.
Microfilms of a few notarial records of Québec. We have no notarial records for the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region. To learn of the resources available in the network, we refer users to the index of notarial records at the ANQ and the Inventaire des greffes des notaires du Régime français (1608-1760), by Pierre-Georges Roy.

Under an agreement we entered into with the Rouyn-Noranda school board in May 1996, an extracurricular activity is organized by the genealogy club of the École D'Iberville. Each Wednesday evening, from October to June, the students in secondary 4 and 5 are invited to come to our reading room and do research on their ancestors. This partnership also includes fund raising for the purchase of genealogy works, which are placed at the disposal of everyone who uses our centre.
In July 1998, another agreement was entered into, with the Société de généalogie Abitibi-Témiscamingue (SGAT), to enable it to hold its activities. In particular, our reading room is open on the second Saturday of each month, with a break during the summer. All genealogists can take advantage of the additional opening hours, whether or not they are members of the SGAT. The agreement also covers the purchase of genealogy works integrated into the reference library of the centre's consultation room, for all genealogists.
Two history societies in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region possess a wealth of genealogy works enabling genealogists to do interesting research in their field: the Société d'histoire et de généalogie de Val-d'Or and the Société d'histoire d'Amos. The latter, as a point of service established by the Archives nationales du Québec under an agreement signed in May 1989, has on loan 500 reels of microfilm of civil status records for the province of Québec.
