This record can be found as image 281/948 in the Québec Vital Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com in the records for Cap St. Ignace 1679-1808. The record appears on the front of folio 5.
The bottom of the record is an interesting collection of what appear to be scratched out signatures. I wonder what was going on there?
