ARCHIVES PAROISSIALES. The most noteworthy holdings of parish archives in Quebec are the registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials (RBMB/RBMS), copies of which are deposited at the Archives Civiles of the judicial district in which the parish is located [see Québec, Ministère de la Justice]. Parish archives usually contain many other documents, including parish account-books, records of the fabriques, registers of parish confraternities, notebooks of sermons, and sometimes correspondence.
BRITISH COLUMBIA ARCHIVES AND RECORDS SERVICE, Victoria. In 1975 the archives began a new cataloguing system for its private manuscript holdings. Manuscripts catalogued since then have been assigned Additional Manuscript (Add. mss) numbers. A partial listing of Add. mss and microfilm collections has been published by the archives (under its former name, the Provincial Archives of British
Columbia) as Manuscript inventory, ed. Frances Gundry (3 nos. to date, 1976– ). Manuscripts catalogued under the old system are gradually being converted to the new one and given Add. mss numbers. Educational records are detailed in BCARS, The school record: a guide to government archives relating to public education in British Columbia, 1852–1946, comp. P. A. Dunae ([ 1992]).

The holdings of the Manuscript Division, responsible for all the manuscript groups as well as a few record group collections including RG 1 and RG 5, are described in Main entry catalogue and general inventory (1987), available on microfiche.

Hillman, and Checklist of parish registers, 1986, rev. Patricia Birkett (4th ed., 1987). Maps and plans in the Cartographic and Audio-Visual Archives Division (formerly the National Map Collection) are listed in the Catalogue of the National Map Collection, Public Archives of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario (16v., Boston, 1976).
The NA’s publications also include the Union list of manuscripts in Canadian repositories, ed. E. G. Maurice [Hyam] et al. (2v., 1975), and 4 supps. [ 1976–1981 /82] (1976–85), which list holdings in the Government Archives and Manuscript divisions, the Guide to Canadian photographic archives, ed.
