Acadian records can be difficult to find. This one took a while. It is a non-indexed collection that contains easy to read church transcripts.

Registres paroissiaux Saint-Charles-des-Mines: Baptêmes, 1707-1748 Marriages, 1709-1748 Sépultures, 1709-1748 Saint-Jean-Baptiste: Baptêmes, 1702-1717
The collection is not indexed. The citation link is blank.

Thank you Peter.  We have these records already noted on the Acadian Reliable Sources page, as they are held in the Canada Archives too (no membership required).  It should be noted that these (in both places) are transcripts of the records, not the originals.  A citation has been made and can be copied from the Reliable Sources page here:

Many other original sources for Port Royal, Beaubassin, all the censuses, Isle Royale and Isle Saint Jean are available through links on that page as well.

The Family Search document for Port Royal is a transcript as well.  What's nice about this version is that you can go through them in date order, rather than using a name search on the site with the original Registers.  I occasionally need to find a name that isn't in the parish family name index.  I will add this to the reliable sources page.

Thanks for the link to the Acadian Reliable Sources page and adding the Family Search collection to it. (I'll cite both repositories in my records)

As, I'm just starting to fill in the details of my Acadian ancestors the reliable sources page will be very helpful.
Terrific Peter.  We also have a separate page for censuses:

Let me know if you ever need any help!

Thank you for a great link! and all the page starting numbers!  that is the hardest part when they are non-searchable. I get into these sort of searches, then find what I need and go.."oooh crud what section was I in again?" and then have to back track thru the pages till i find the answer and the page numbers involved. lol  this saves time!  I'll just save this for future reference thank you very much Peter!
