When I first started researching my Quebec ancestors, I puzzled over many of the place names in the church and census records. Where exactly was Château Richer, Batiscan or Rivière des Prairies? I would “google” the name and find it but, being geographically-challenged; I would then forget exactly where that specific place was when I chanced on the name again!
Then I found Marcel Trudel’s Atlas de la nouvelle-france. Voila! It included a wonderful map that showed all the parishes in the three administrative districts of Montreal, Trois Rivières and Quebec. This book was published by Les Presses de l’université Laval. I contacted them, and they have very kindly giving me permission to post the map on my blog.
I will also post this map on a page called Maps, which you will find on my sidebar, near the Timeline.
