Characteristics and Description
- This project includes three record types (birth, marriage, and death).
- Most of the records were written in French; however, some records may be in Dutch.
- A variety of forms were used for records of the same type.
- The records were usually handwritten, sometimes in paragraphs and sometimes on preprinted forms.
- While forms generally follow the same format for a particular time period, they do not always have information for each indexing field.
- Although the time period for this project is 1901–1910, older records may be included in some batches. All records should be indexed.
- Records were filed first by locality and then chronologically by record type.
- Most records begin with the date of the record.
- Batches usually have up to five images, with up to two records per image.
- Records may span two images.
- No highlights are available for this project.
- The completed index will be freely accessible online to the general public when collection is published. Active indexers, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and patrons at any of the Church's family history centers will have free access to view the images on FamilySearch.org.
