I have the microfilm on hold for Ste. Martine, Chateauguay, QC for
1823-1877. I came across a typed document in the parish records around 1870
titled Extrait du Code de Procedure Cibile. Also below it has Code Civil.
It is 5 pages long but and typed but all in French. My French is not that
good to translate it all. I assume it lists what the church was responsible
for since it is in the middle of the Catholic parish records. I can scan
and send it to anyone interested in it.
