I would like to get an english translation of this Drouin record.
Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 9 months ago.

I'm not even able to make out the writing. I am going to open this up to other experts to help.

Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 9 months ago.

Thanks so much for requesting me, but - like Michael - I can't even read this writing in order to be able to translate it. Sadly, the writer was deficient in penmanship, and the scribbling can't be read most anywhere on the page.

I'm so sorry.

Hi. I may be able to translate it better that the other being a native french speaker. That said it is indeed very hard to read. Perhaps if you give me what you already know about it it would help me figure out some name better. From what i see there is two record in there, the first 29 may 1774 and the second starting at line 5 being 31 may or perhaps 30 june or august (the month is hard to read but is not a long word, like not december or september or november and surely not before may as it is after and still in 1774). I assume because of the name of the file that you are interested in the second part related to Louis Brazeau and the first part related to Marie Cyrille is not interesting to you?

Expert:  Martin replied 9 months ago.

Do you still need help with that? I can still translate it even without the additional info you asked, it might just be less precise.
