Catholic Marriages in the Outaouais and Eastern Ontario

In her Gene-O-Rama presentation on Ottawa area genealogical resources at LAC last Saturday, Mary Munk mentioned Jacques-Henri Fabien (d. 1974) and the more than 250,000 index cards drawn mainly from parish registers he compiled. It covers mostly marriages from 1657 to 1974 with the marriage date, names of spouses and their fathers and mothers, as well as the parish where the event took place for the oldest Catholic parishes in the Outaouais area. They were made available on microfilm and subsequently in the canadiana.ca Héritage collection. Search for Fabien and find digital microfilm reels H-1023 to H-1047, but not in numerical order and mixed with other films.
This table might help locate the film you need.

I would not spend times on this resource if you have ready access to the Drouin collection.
