6319RE: Someone looking for a Jesuit priest in Canada
- Jan 31, 2011
Hi Joan & Audrey,
There is a book at the University of Calgary (I don’t know the title or call number) that has bios of Jesuit priests up to about 1970 or 1980. They only included those priests who deceased at time of publication. The card catalogue is online so you can search there for Jesuit priests as a subject and I’m sure you would find it. If you are not in Calgary check your local library for an interlibrary-loan. I think the book was in the non-circulating collection, but you could get them to send a copy of the relevant page to you.
There are a few other resources, if that one doesn’t work.
Also the Drouin Collection at Ancestry.ca should give you birth/baptism and death/burial. Also if he was a parish priest, you can find out what parishes he was at – again a book whose title I do not recall.
I am busy today, but if this doesn’t help you, email me and I’ll see what I can do tomorrow.
Someone asked the following question. Can anyone help? Where should they start researching?
Thanks for connecting with me.
I have a gr. uncle who was a Jesuit Priest in Canada in the early - mid 1900's and who died there. Don't have too much info on him but have never had any luck finding anything on him in Canada. I contacted several of the Jesuit groups in the past, with no luck. Any suggestions on where to look?
Would appreciate any help you could provide...
