Louis Fortin

In the year of O[ur] Lord, [one thousand six hundred]
seventy one, on the nineteenth of March: I baptized in the
Church of Saint Anne, an infant born on the seventh of the
same month of Julian Fortin and Geneviève Gamache, his
wife, residing in the same parish. His Godfather was Joseph
Gagnon and his Godmother was Louise Picard, daughter of
Jean Picard. The infant was named Louis. Signed F[rançois]
Fillon, missionary priest. [signed] Morin, priest

This record can be found as image 12/877 in the Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com in the records for Ste. Anne du Beaupré 1668-1808. The record appears on page 8.

This image is apparently from a transcript of the original record book since it states that the record was signed by François Fillon, but was actually signed by Morin.

    Hello Steve…

    Looks like we are related ( I am sure if you have lots of French Canadian we have several common ancestors)
    Julien and Genevieve’s daughter Barbe Fortin who married Pierre Gagnon is in my line…. Thanks also for the great summaries of our programs at CGS…jane
