Until recently, these folios from Québec were difficult to access. Now, these records are available on Ancestry.com as part of the Québec Vital Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967. At the present time, the records are not indexed electronically. The records are, however, grouped according to location and year.
Fortunately, I knew some of the locations and years for events in the Patenaudes’ lives, so the search wasn’t especially burdensome. Furthermore, most of the records are indexed at the end of every year, which means that I didn’t have to scroll through all the records, just the indexes. Still, I’ll be happy when Ancestry.com posts an electronic index for these records.
