Part of this record was obliterated and cannot be read. I reconstructed the record using information from other records and information I already knew about the individuals named. The reconstructed portions of the record are shown in square brackets.

This record can be found as image 34/948 in the Québec Vital Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com as part of the records for Cap-St-Ignace 1679-1808. The record appears on folio 32 verso (the reverse of folio 32).
