Brief Account of the Fenian Raids 1877
In 2010, I wrote a post called, "My Favorite Historical Society is on a Stamp!" It's about the Missisquoi Historical Society, in Stanbridge East, Quebec, Canada, and why I like it.
In addition to the above, I frequently use FamilySearch.org (link for Quebec, non-Catholic parish registers, 1763-1967) and the international edition of Ancestry.com (subscription).

UPDATE: JULY 29, 2016: David Graham submitted the following bits of information and links:
Canadian families. Basically the are which in 1830 was 20% French and 80%
English by 1930 became 80 % French and 20% English. The book *A Village in
Transition: Compton Quebec 1880-1920, *
online, tells the story poignantly. In it there are five references to
Irish settlement of the area.
