Archives collection of the colonial era
In fall 2016, the Stewart Museum undertook an ambitious project to digitize its archives from the colonial era, as part of the implementation of the Plan culturel numérique du Québec.
More than 700 manuscripts and printed documents were digitized, representing 1.42m linear. These archives retrace the history of European and North American society from the 16th to the 19th century. These documents are made accessible online on Info-Muse database of the Société des musées du Québec and Artefacts Canada
This major project brings together 8,000 photographed pages.
In addition, see this historical gold mine directly int the Museum, thanks to the IPad installed in the exhibition History and Memory.
The archives of the colonial era of the Stewart Museum collection tells more than 300 years of Canadian history and colonization in North America. It brings together nearly 850 manuscripts and printed unique and rare, diversified (orders, judgments, extracted from baptism, marriage contracts, genealogical records, letters, diaries, etc.)
This project is part of the implementation of the Plan culturel numérique du Québec. #PCNQ
