Cemetery History

Stratford is a small town in farm country half way between Thetford Mines and Lake Megantic. It is located in Stratford Township, Wolfe County now called the Regional County Municipality of Le Granit. Stratford is in a scenic area with 5 lakes, the largest being Lake Aylmer. It was named after Stratford-Upon-Avon in England but today the population is almost 100% French Canadian.

The parish was founded in 1857 and the church records begin that year.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
