Did You Know? Quebec - Did you know? A typical French-Canadian building is the farmhouse. It is based on structures in the French provinces of Normandy, Maine, and Anjou, where most of the French settlers in the St Lawrence valley originated. The typical house was made of wood and had low walls, a steep roof, small windows, and few interior divisions. It was adapted to the northern climate by raising the ground floor to accommodate heavy snow accumulation and by adding multiple chimneys and dormers. The farmhouse also came to be characterized by a verandah, extended belcast eaves supported by a row of narrow columns, and a roof covered in sheet metal.

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.
