French/English translation?

Hi Folks,

I have a family document that is written in French, but I have no idea what it says. If anyone is able to translate it for me, I'd be thrilled! It's too large to post all at once, so I'm attaching the top half here, and the bottom half in the reply.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll give it another day or two since we have so many folks from Canada on the site. Maybe I'll get lucky and find someone who can handle it. If that doesn't produce results, I'll try Daniella. Thanks again for your time.

My view is that its a copy extract from a parish register for a birth. Its from the parish of St Joan Chrysostome which is in Quebec. Not too sure on the date but I'll take a stab at 1946, but a lot of the handwriting defeats me. I've no doubt some site member can wring a bit more from it Ed.


I'm assuming the parish is in Quebec but of course there may be many parishes in France itself named after the saint. Your probably related to fur trappers Ed !

Best shot (late at night + rusty in French + never been good at handwriting):

Extract from the register of baptisms, marriages and burials performed at St. Jean Chrysotome, diocese of Valleyfield, for the year 1874.
31 August 1874
We have baptised Marie Anne Emma daughter of Dominique Dupuis, [carrier?]
and of Emma Racicot of this parish
the godfather was Isaie Racicot [carrier?] grandfather of the child
and the godmother Julie Luscier wife of Charles Dufrais (or Dupuis?) [something] of this parish.
The father and the godfather have signed:
Isaie Racicot does not know how to sign
Dominique Dupois
Celebrant L.L. Pomminrille Stucure
Which extract we confirm as conforming with the original preserved in the files of the parish of St. Jean Chrysotome, 10 October 1985.

Very good work, Leah. Almost identical as the copy I just sent to Ed.

What's 'stucure' ? Never seen this word and it's not in the Merriam-Webster's dictionary I've got.
