Thanks and credit go to
the excellent research of Ruth Charest who traced this Berthiaume line for Alice
(Berthiaume) Bolander, granddaughter of Francis X. and Mary (Crosby). Other
Berthiaume researchers in other Berthiaume lines may have performed the exact same
research and got the exact same results, but Ruth Charest traced it from scratch for
Alice, and Ruth generously shared it with me.
Jacques Berthiaume was born/baptized at
de St. Benin, commune de Thury-Harcourt, diocese de Bayeux, Normandie, France. He
was our first Berthiaume ancestor to leave France for "New France"--Canada.
