The Godfather was Victor LeBlanc, the

that she does not know how to sign as required.

This record can be found as image 34/191 in the Acadia French Catholic Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1670-1946 on Ancestry.com in the records for St-Charles-les-Mines Baptêmes 1733-1748. The record appears on page 34.

The Godparents were the brother and sister of the infant. I previously found the birth and baptismal record of Angèlique LeBlanc, who was born in 1722. I have not yet found the birth and baptismal record of Victor LeBlanc.

One Response to The Birth and Baptism of Pierre Hilaire LeBlanc – 1736

  1. Hi Steve,

    I just want to let you know that the above records you obtained from the Drouin are not from the original registers. What you see is the transcription done by Placide Gaudet. They are not 100% accurate but they are excellent by most standards. This is to say that the above are then secondary sources and not actually primary sources since they are not from the original registers that are held by the Diocese of Baton Rouge – recently a copy of the original registers was sent to the Historic site of Grand-Pré in Nova Scotia.

    You have a great blog!

    Sincerely,

    Lucie LeBlanc Consentino
