Content Vital Records: 2365 microfilms covering all vital records of Quebec from beginnings to 1940, including usually both copies (court house and catholic church copies). Some microfilms are about other places like Acadia, Ontario and some American records (mostly West French Forts).   Official Web Site (microfilm version).  From 2002, version on CD-ROM (as the microfilms are processed).

3rd part: it is the continuation of the Blue Drouin, that is, marriage cards after 1935 and some hypothetical marriages. This microfilm series has very small images.  Official Web Site

Review Vital records: Those are copies from original records. Some can be hard to read because of handwritting, ink that traversed the paper, etc. Some records have an index, while for other you have to read or even analyse records one by one.

This series is very important because it includes both copies of vital records (church and court house), which may help to complete the records.

3rd part: After checking the first cards about Beauregards, I located 2 new marriages I had not previously. The first was wrong (no source), but the second one was correct (source given). 

Availability Rare. Vital records: At least: Montreal (Salle Gagnon and SGCF), Quebec (SGQ), Longueuil (CGL), Woonsocket, RI (AFGS) and Boston (NEHGS). 

3rd part: At least: Montreal (Salle Gagnon), Longueuil (CGL).
