Quebec Actor Antoine Bertrand Discovers His English Roots

Qui êtes-vous? the Radio Canada's version of Who Do You Think You Are? recently followed the ancestry of Quebec actor Antoine Bertrand back to a young girl captured from New England during the inter-colonial wars, She was among the 112 people taken prisoner, others were massacred, on February 29, 1704 in Deerfield, Massachusetts, and forced to walk in winter to Montreal.
The program follows the ancestry back to Essex.
Much of the program after the first few minutes is in English with French subtitles.
