Did You Know?Did you know...When the first settlers came to Canada from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated.The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.

Did You Know?Did you know...A common belief in old Quebec was that lutins [spirits] had the power to bring woe upon the people. If a lutin becomes offended, his master might discover his boots filled with peas or with pebbles. His pantaloons might be sewed up at the knee. He might find salt in his porridge, and pepper in his tea, and the meat in the soup kettle will be turned into pieces of stone. If he goes cutting hay or grain, he cannot get his scythe or his sickle to cut properly; in winter time the water will freeze in his well, and his wife never can cook a good tourtiere - meat pie - without burning the crust into a crisp.

1660 Death

"...Un autre détail précieux que nous retrouvons dans cet ouvrage, et que les historiens ne donnent pas, c'est celui des noms non moins glorieux des compa- ‘ gnons de Dollard. Ils sont partis vingt pour cette ex pédition, tous également intrépides, dévoués et déter minés, tous des jeunes gens. Trois d' entre eux, Nicolas Du Val, Mathurin Soulard et Blaise Juillet périrent dès le début de l'ex- pédition, le 19 avril, à l'île St-Paul, près de Montréal, dans une rencontre avec un parti d'Iroquois."
