ar­chives in the East­ern Town­ships one cen­tral­ized plat­form. This por­tal en­sures that Canada’s con­tin­u­ing mem­ory is doc­u­mented and ac­ces­si­ble to cur­rent and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Now, ev­ery­body is able to dig into the rich his­tory of the re­gion by search­ing through thou­sands of records such as per­sonal let­ters and diaries, busi­ness records, minute books from or­ga­ni­za­tions, church reg­is­ters, pho­to­graphs, post­cards, and maps. The East­ern Town­ships Ar­chives Por­tal brings to­gether archival de­scrip­tions from his­tor­i­cal so­ci­eties and ar­chives repos­i­to­ries from across the East­ern Town­ships of Que­bec. It is one com­mon place for the unique his­tory of the East­ern Town­ships – his­tory at your fin­ger­tips.

The event is free and ev­ery­body is wel­come. Please re­serve at etrc@ubish­ops.ca
