Did You Know? Québec Généalogie - What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Québec 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.

Notre-Dame-de-Quebec, Quebec, Canada

"The first known mention of the presence of Antoine Brassard on Canadian soil was at his marriage at the very beginning of 1637 in the chapel of Notre-Dame de la Recourvrance... this act mentions neither the place of origin nor the names of the couple's parents. The reason is that the original registries had been destroyed in a fire at the chapel and the rectory on 15 June 1640, so it was necessary to reconstruct from memory each of the acts..."
