My cousin Chris found the birth and baptismal record for Marie Edwidge Patenaude, who was born in 1867. Chris was able to find this record even though Marie Edwidge’s record was located in the records for Mission de Saint Thomas d’Aquin de Compton which are grouped with the records for Saint Herménégilde. The record extends from the back of folio 14 to the front of folio 15 and is far from easy to read.

B.[?2] [baptism #?2]
On the twenty-seventh day of October, one thousand eight hundred sixty-seven, by us, the undersigned priest, missionary, Marie Edwidge was baptized, born on the seventeenth of the current month of the legitimate marriage of Charles Patenaude and Osithe Gamache, of Barford. The Godfather was Calixte [Dupuy?] and the Godmother was Henriette Gamache, who, as well as the father, did not know how to sign.

This record was very faint. If Chris didn’t have a good idea of what he was looking for and where to look, he probably wouldn’t have found this record. When these records are indexed, I don’t expect this one will be indexed correctly.
