This record can be found as image 14/38 and image 15/38 in the Québec Vital Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com in the records for L’Acadie L’Acadie Ste-Marguerite-de-Blairfindie. The record appears on the front and back of folio 14 for the year 1812.

Note that the priest crossed out three words written in the incorrect place. He then acknowledged this error by a note in the margin.

Also note that he crossed out a name in the margin. He initially wrote the maiden name of the bride’s mother, rather than the maiden name of the bride.
