October Ten or more - Babies part 2

I forgot to post last Monday's list of family members who had 10 or more babies in the continuing series of "October, tenth month-ten items"  list.  I'll blame it on my youngest's birthday.....But for the next great mother on my list, I present Victorie Chauvin, my great-great grandmother on my mother's side of the family tree.  Victorie, born in 1833 in Ontario, Canada married Narcisse Trepanier on 17 March 1851.  They settled in Belle River, Ontario and had 13 children.

Marie Louise (1854 -     )
Emelie  (1858 - 1937)
Adeline (1858 - 1941)
Sophie (1861 - 1925)  my great grandmother  
Caroline (1863 -    )
Joseph Louis ( 1863 - 1865)
Georges (1869 -     )
Napoleon ( 1870 - 1941)
Phelonise (1873 -     )
Suzanne (1874 - 1944)
Marie ( 1876 -    )
Henrie (1878 -     )
Peter (1878 -      )

Now if I could only read French.  Ancestry.com, for the first fifteen days of October have opened up some of their records, http://www.ancestry.com/.  Of particular interest is the "Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection) 1621 - 1967".  I can find lots of Brossoits and Trepaniers, but most of the records are in French!
