Did You Know?Québec Généalogie - Did you know? In Quebec, coworkers of similiar status generally use first names in private, but always last names in public. The formal "you" is almost always used in a business setting, even after 20 years.
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.

Pierre Charron
'Pierre Charron, son of Pierre Charron and Judith Martin, emigrated to Canada in 1662 (in 1661 according to some sources) and married Catherine Pillard on October 19, 1665 in Montreal. They had 12 children all of whom reached adulthood and eventually married. Obviously, this was an excellent means to ensure their posterity which now numbers in the tens of thousands established in Québec as well as in Canada and the United States.

Indeed, their four sons, Pierre, Nicolas, François and Jean would perpetuate their name, except that at the outset François adopted the Ducharme surname which was later transmitted to his entire posterity. To our knowledge, in 2004 no descendant of François bears the original name of Charron. This is the reason why the descendants of Pierre Charron and Catherine Pillard are known either as Charron or Ducharme.
