The Godfather and Godmother were François Dion, grandfather of the infant, and Marie LeBlanc, who have stated that they do not know how to sign as required by law.

This entry is a different copy of the entry I previously wrote about on 07 Nov 2008. This copy is much more legible, but it does not appear to include the exact same language as the first. Still, the basic information provided is the same

This record can be found as image 9/149 in the Québec Vital Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com as part of the records for L’Islet-sur-mer 1683-1762. The record appears on folio 9 recto (the front of folio 9).
