Droin Collection At Ancestry.com

Ancestry.com recently released the Droin Collection on their website. The indexing is not yet complete, but the project is quite impressive and a nice addition for those with French-Canadian ties.

The image that is a part of this post comes from the Droin Collection and is the baptismal entry for Cesarie Robidoux. The entry is from St-Constant and is from the year 1827. Her parents are Alexis Robixoux and his wife Rosalie Rheume. Those wishing to use these records will need to brush up on their Latin. When time allows we will post a translation here on our site.

Cesarie is my wife's 3rd great-grandmother. Cesarie's family settled in Clinton County, New York where she died.
