Pierre Duhamel posted:
Malheuseusement, je n'ai pas les ascendants de Hermas Duhamel qui est marié à Célina Duhaime. D'autre part, je n'ai aucune indication que celui-ci est de la lignée des "Duhamel dit Brasseur".

I do not speak French, unfortunately, so I looked up 'dit': "Dit" in French means "say" and in this context, it means "called." In other words, a person might be Pierre Bourbeau dit Lacourse, which means that he had an ancestor named Bourbeau, but he chooses to use the name Lacourse instead. So he is Pierre Bourbeau called Lacourse.

So, now I am also researching "Brasseur" as my uncle (has passed) but did tell me that he vaguely remembered that his father came from Belgium. So, now I am curious how they may have got from Belgium to St. Charles, Ontario, Canada!
