Cyprien Tanguay's Dictionnaire g?n?alogique des familles canadiennes (Genealogical Dictionary of French Canadian Families) is an important source for Qu?bec research. The seven-volume dictionary gives the genealogy of most of the French Canadian colonists and many of their descendants. Records are from the late 1500s to about 1800. There are some 4400 pages originally published in 7 volumes.

Cyprien Tanguay was born at Quebec in 1819 and died in 1902. After a course of classics and theology at Quebec Seminary, he was ordained in 1843. The first twenty-two years of his priesthood were devoted to parochial work, especially at Rimouski, where he greatly contributed to the foundation of the future diocesan seminary. His early taste for genealogical studies fully manifested itself after his official appointment to the Dominion Statistics Department (1867). His whole time was henceforth spent in consulting and compiling parochial and historical records throughout Quebec, the Maritime Provinces, Ontario, and the old French settlements in the United States. He also twice visited France for the same purpose. As the result of his labours he published (1871-90) his "Dictionnaire g?n?alogique des familles canadiennes fran?aises depuis les origines de la colonie jusqu'? nos jours", comprising seven large double column volumes: a colossal undertaking, fit for a numerous body of collaborators, which he achieved alone. Every French Canadian by completing from contemporary registers and then using the information supplied by this dictionary can proudly trace back his genealogy to his ancestors from old France.
