This record can be found as image 286/287 in the Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com in the records for Quebec (Notre Dame) (1687-1689). The record appears on verso folio 28 (277) (the back of folio 28 as numbered for the single book and 277 as numbered for the collection of books).

Much of this record is unreadable. Fortunately, there exists a transcription found as image 352/564 in the Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com in the records for Quebec (Notre Dame) (1700-1704). The record appears on page 348. My translation of this record is based largely on this transcript.

The husband mentioned in this record, Étienne Miranbeaux, is Marie Anne Fortin’s second husband. Her first husband, Jean Picard, was buried on 29 Nov 1700. Marie Anne Fortin married Étienne Miranbeaux on 07 Jan 1702, a little less than a year before she died.
