I have found an entry for a marriage in one of the Répertoires de notaires (Notarial Repertoires) in Ancestry's database Quebec, Canada, Notarial Records, 1626-1935 and I am trying to find the corresponding marriage contract.
Ancestry's record page says:
Name: Frédéric Cormier Record Date: 24 juin 1902 (24 Jun 1902) Record Place: Montréal, Québec (Quebec), Canada Inferred Marriage Year: 1902 Notary: Joseph-Alfred Nadeau Notarial Act Number: 6862 Record Type: Contrat de Mariage (Marriage Contract) (Marriage) Record Description: Mariage Participants: Name Frédéric Cormier Emma Tétreault
Sharing link to the original image of the Répertoire (no sub should be required).
Ancestry gives this for the Source information:
Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec; Montréal, Quebec, Canada; Collection: Archives des notaires du Québec; District: Montréal; Title: Nadeau, Joseph-Alfred (1900-1910)
Ancestry.com. Quebec, Canada, Notarial Records, 1626-1935 [database on-line]. Lehi, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2016.
Fonds Cour Supérieure. Greffes de notaires. Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec, Montréal, Québec, Canada.
I am trying to see if the contract corresponds to the same couple in this marriage (record from the Droin collection):
Name: Frederic Cormier Spouse: Emma Tetreau Event: Mariage (Marriage) Marriage Year: 1902 Marriage Location: Richelieu, Québec (Quebec)
Ancestry.com. Quebec, Canada, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1968 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2008.
Original data: Gabriel Drouin, comp. Drouin Collection. Montreal, Quebec, Canada: Institut Généalogique Drouin.
I want to find the Actes notariés (Notarial Acts) corresponding to this entry, but the Actes notariés (Notarial Acts) of this notary don't appear to be on Ancestry or FamilySearch.
When I use the Browse function on Ancestry, I don't see Joseph-Alfred Nadeau in the list for Montréal:
Similarly I don't see Nadeau's name in the collection of Quebec Notarial Records, 1800-1920 on FamilySearch.
What are some good search strategies for finding out which repository might hold the records of a particular notary, when the notary's name and the record date and location are known?
