In the world of genealogy, mutual help is an important value. BAnQ has forged ties with a number of international organizations, and some of its collaborations have changed or are changing the face of genealogy in Québec.

  • BAnQ and the Genealogical Society of Utah have collaborated to increase awareness and use of our documentary heritage by setting up microfilming and, more recently, digitization, programs under which some 10 million pages have been processed in the last 20 years.
  • As part of the development of the archives of the French Regime, with their undeniable genealogical potential, BAnQ has joined forces with Library and Archives Canada and the Direction des Archives de France to set up a portal called New France New Horizons, which brings together resources available on the sites of the participating institutions. The virtual exhibition and online database on New France New Horizons are exceptional resources for researchers interested in the French presence in North America. Genealogists interested in tracing ancestry or exploring family and local history will find abundant information on the lives and living environments of early settlers.

In genealogy at the local level, partnerships take a wide variety of forms. They can involve the building of search tools or the digitization of documentary series, the sharing of premises and services, the pooling of resources for dissemination purposes or the setting up of training activities. Genealogy societies in Québec count more than 12,000 members, including 3,800 in the Société généalogique canadienne-française and 1,500 in the Société de généalogie de Québec. Clearly, the genealogy community is a dynamic one, with considerable potential.

The following examples illustrate the broad spectrum of BAnQ collaboration with the genealogy community:

  • The Marcel-Trudel collection of notarial acts is the fruit of a collaboration between BAnQ and the Société généalogique canadienne-française. The collection is held by the Société généalogique canadienne-française and consists of more than 50,000 typewritten documents, including 40,000 from the Montréal, Québec City and Trois-Rivières archives centres.
  • The Société de généalogie de l'Outaouais shares BAnQ 's premises in the Outaouais region and pools with BAnQ its genealogical and historical documentation covering not only the Outaouais but also the rest of Québec, other regions of Canada and the United States. As a result, genealogists have at their disposal a multitude of finding aids to facilitate their work: directories, genealogical dictionaries, microfilms and microfiches.
  • The Québec City centre is home to the Société de généalogie de Québec. The two organizations occupy different parts of the premises, but are deeply involved in a number of shared dissemination and training activities.
  • In collaboration with BAnQ , the Société de recherche historique Archiv-Histo has developed a variety of databases, including the notarial data bank called Parchemin, which covers the period from 1626 to 1784, and the data banks in the Thémis series for judicial archives.
  • The Fichier Origine database, the creation of a Québec genealogy portal, and the organization of the 28th international congress of genealogical and heraldic sciences, to be held at the Québec City convention centre in 2008 are all projects on which BAnQ and the Fédération québécoise des sociétés de généalogie have collaborated in various ways.
  • In addition, ties relating to service delivery and participation in dissemination activities have been forged with the Fédération des familles-souches québécoises inc., which occupies part of BAnQ 's premises in Québec City.
