Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? 1840s - As American factories in New England offered good jobs, thousands of French Canadians emigrated to the United States. In the eyes of the Roman Catholic clergy, however, this emigration was equated with losing the faith, and strong efforts were made to keep French Canadians in Canada.

Did You Know? What is a 'dit/dite' name?  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.

Jean-Guillaume VACHER dit LACERTE married immigrant Fille du Roi flag Anne BARILLET-- Date: 9 November 1671 Place: Québec, Canada, New France
"Upon arrival in New France, he settled in Quebec, where his presence was noted for the first time on the occasion of the signing of his marriage contract before Romain Becquet on 29 October 1671. On the following 9 November, still in Quebec, he married a King's daughter, Anne Barillet, daughter of Jean and of Anne Boudinier, of Saint-Sulpice in Paris... This young woman does not seem to have lived very long after the ordeal of the first birth, that of an anonymous child born on 22 September 1672, and buried the next day."
