(Elaine) This is my best guess as to what the document says. There are words in it that I can't quite make out but most of this is accurate.
Elaine: I do have Genline and offered on July 14th to read the record for you if you provided me with the Genline number and parish. I'll be glad to read it and give you a translation whenever you get it to me.
Hi Elaine: You can send me the information about your ancestor and I can check it out on Genline or you can send me a jpeg or gif attachment in an e-mail. that choice is up to you. I can only say that I will do my best to tell you what it says and send you back my interpretation. My direct e-mail is:
