Province of Quebec

Quebec was not a province I thought Lightbodys would be found. While Montreal and Quebec City are sites for immigration, they were mostly entry points in the early days and families would move on, but that is seen in the mid-late  1800's and the early 1900's. So to find listings for early 1800's was a surprise. It seems most of these may be related to military postings and families that arrived with them or developed while they were there.

All the information on the Quebec Lightbodys came from

If you think you may have connections or have stories of long distant relatives that served in Quebec, please let me know and I would love to post those details for you here.
