Hint needed for using Genealogiequebec.com

+4 votes
Hello, I have a 24 hour pass to search in Genealogiequebec.com and a limited amount of images allowed to view. My searches for couples in LAFRANCE all came up with nothing. I find that hard to believe. In the Drouin  Collection they have a load of jpgs which are not searchable and have titles with numbers hence they need to be opened to identify. I do not know the year of marriage of the the parish for my couples that I search for. Any hints to make the most of this sight and time? Many thanks for any suggestions.

To all, I actually found many marriage records in the Great Collections: Joseph-Drouin Men and Women Series 1760-1880. I honed in more quickly on the documents because they are alphabetical. So a first name that starts with A might be in the first doc, etc. It worked.

Through Ancestry.com I was able to access "Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621 to 1968."  The records are searchable in English; I found the bapt. and marriage of my ancestor in 1814.  

I hope this helps!

some terms:  Bapteme (baptism); Enterrement (record of death)

Thank you Janine!
Since you don't have much time you could probably find someone to translate text for you some time in the future.
Hi Janine, Yes I downloaded the documents so I can look at them later...they were not too hard to understand. I figured out that Lse. stands for Louise. And Pre stands for Pierre. Cse is Charles.

Thanks very much for the suggestions, I actually filled in a huge section of the tree yesterday!

Take care!
