this is my genealogical web site - see voyageur contract below

there's plenty of info online of denominations and types of coins and paper money but none i could find that specifies what you could buy in goods and services for one livre in 1749 new france

the link to the original voyageur contract no longer works - i havent been able to find a copy - but the translation is accurate - i grew up in both languages
