Abstract

The 1861 census shows that approximately forty small lumber producers operated in Ragot in this region. These small producers, almost all of them reporting as farmers, arrived in the Saguenay region around 1840 with the first wave of immigrants, most of them from the neighbouring parishes of Charlevoix. The aim of this study is to point out the originality of some of the undertakings launched during the settlement process, with an emphasis on the forest products "trade" in which these sawyer-farmers may have engaged.
