Can we improve Jacques Chirac's profile and include it in our Presidents of France mini-project? [closed]

+10 votes

Jacques Chirac is now the only President of France we have no access to and we'd like to update him with succession box and category at least (his parents could be added as well, as their birth records are available). To see what Greg Lavoie and myself are up to (more volunteers welcome), please check out the Presidents of France mini-project.

We have a profile his wife and she is all connected: Bernadette Chirac. Could I have access to her husband's profile so that the two will be connected (this will connect Jacques Chirac to the main tree)? 

Thank you !

translated from the French Wikipedia, although I know Wikipedia could have mistakes, it might be a good trace. The words mother and father are added by me.

Jacques René Chirac was born at the Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire clinic in Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. He is the son of Marie Louise Valette (1902-1973) (mother) and Abel François Marie Chirac (1898- 1968) (father), military cross-war medalist 14-18, decorated with the Legion of Honor, bank employee then director of a subsidiary of the aeronautical company SNCAN. Both come from "secular and republican" Correzian families.

His two grandfathers were schoolteachers who had become school principals: in Brive-la-Gaillarde for his paternal grandfather, Louis Chirac, also Venerable of the Fidelity Lodge of the Grand Orient2, and Sainte-Féréole (Correze) for his maternal ancestor.


Translated from the catalan Wikipedia

Abel François Marie Chirac (Bel Luec, January 6, 1898 - Senta Fereóla, July 1, 1968) was an industrial Occitan, son of regent (profession of father Louis Joseph Chirac as the birth act). He is the father of President Chirac.

Thank you!

Yes, for Jacques Chirac's parents we have to do with Wikipedia, press articles and such sources, since his birth record can't be accessed yet (he was born too recently). I did check his parents' birth records in the Archives de Corrèze and would be ready to add them - provided they can be immediately linked to Chirac, because I don't want to create them as floaters.
if it is all correct, I added a bit about his father from the occitan wikipedia
His father's birth place is, in French, Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne, the father (grandfather of Jacques) was a school teacher (instituteur).

President Chirac's mother Marie-Louise Valette was born in 1902 in Noailhac.
hope to have given you a bit of a trace
