    One of my pastimes is geneology and I'm having a hard time making sense of this old handwritten French (Canadian) baptism record. Any French speakers out there willing to give it a go?

    In particular I'm looking for the parents names ...

    i would say
    father François Dompierre
    mother Marie Thérèse Marineau or Morineau ?
    daughter Marie Marguerite Dompierre

    born and baptised the 14 june 1817

    cultivateur is the father job

    i am not sure but perhaps the father and maraine were not able to sign

    ( last phrase )

    Sadly, this is what I've got to work with. I've had much worse if that is any consolation!
