Droin Collection At Ancestry.com

I've been doing a little bit of work on my wife's French-Canadian lines using the Droin Collection atAncestry.com .
This image is this posting is from 1815 marriages in St. Constant.
Alexis Robidoux married Rose Rheaume. Even those who can't read the original can see their names on the left hand side of the entry.
Ancestry.com has indexed these records, but just the names of the couple getting married, the person who was born or died only. Many other names are mentioned, but these are not included in the index.
However having these records online with even this index is a wonderful help for those with ancestors from Quebec. Especially since you do not have to leave home to conduct your searches.
