On the 16th of March of the present year, I the undersigned have baptized Anne LeBlanc, daughter of Pierre Leblanc and Françoise Landry legitimate this day. Her Godfather was Joseph LeBlanc and her Godmother was Anne Bourg In witness thereof I have signed the day and year above.

This record can be found as image 90/317 in the Acadia French Catholic Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1670-1946 on Ancestry.com in the records for St-Charles-les-Mines Baptêmes 1707-1733. The record appears on page 86.
I found this record while trying to trace the Leblanc family line from which my Godmother, Alice Charron Danko, descends. The document is an Acadian record from Nova Scotia. The date of birth of Anne LeBlanc was not provided in this record.
UPDATE: 17 Mar 2008: Gilles, the Nomadic Researcher, provided me with the correct transcription and translation for the last sentence of this record. Thanks, Gilles!
