Drouin Collection back at Ancestry.com?

I normally don't blog about "news" here as that's not really the purpose of this blog. However, as I am researching several French-Canadians, I'll make an exception.

Lorine over at Olive Tree Genealogy has indicated that the Ancestry.com access to the Drouin Collection at Ancestry.com will be back on Monday.

This is excellent news. As readers may be aware, my children are 1/16 French-Canadian. Their great-great-grandmother Mary Demar Apgar Verikios Williams, born in 1895 in upstate New York was of French-Canadian ancestry. Her maiden name was actually Desmarais. And the other three names are a LONG story.
