Maureen McNeil:  Transcription of Holy Guardian Angels Birth, Marriage &
Death Records from 1821-1876.

In addition to these records, Maureen has generously supplemented the Holy Guardian Angels parish information with information from other primary and secondary sources. She does this so that we can more easily match individuals to our personal genealogies. You will find her 'Source Key' provided at the top of each record page. When Maureen provides us with information other than the basic parish data, you will find her source for that information in the far right column of the document.

These records are organized alphabetically, by family surname.
They cover the time period 1821 to about 1874.

The next group of L'Ardoise records covers the period 1876 - 1911. With the release of the 1911 census, the precedent for publishing birth records is to that year. Additional records will be added, as appropriate. Many thanks to those who have invested many hours in the transcribing of these records.
