Drouin Collection at Ancestry.com

Ancestry is offering temporary free access to its digitized version of the Drouin Collection. This is an excellent source for those researching French-Canadian ancestors. My only problem is finding time to use the
Drouin Collection--my wife is 1/8th French-Canadian with families that left Canada in the 1840s-1850s to settle in Clinton County, New York. Her great-great-grandfather eventually spent time in Chicago, where his daughter Marie starting meeting husbands.
