RE: Death Penalty Index for New France
Oops, I meant his murderer - not “murdered” - was executed.
I have cced the Quebec SIG, so my apologies if you receive this email twice. Just use the handy delete key!
When looking for a particular name for a client, I struck out on Ancestry, FamilySearch and PRDH, so decided to try a general search for the name on the Internet only to find he was the victim of a murder (throat cut) and his murdered was executed. I found this at http://members.shaw.ca/canada_legal_history/qc.htm - it is the CANADA DEATH PENALTY INDEX for Quebec
It starts with New France and goes to Quebec from Confederation to Present.
From the main index at http://members.shaw.ca/canada_legal_history/main_index.htm you can search all provinces. You never know what you might find in unexpected places.
