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.

    Women in New France generally took on the domestic roles of wives, mothers, and housekeepers. They were, however, viewed more as equals than their counterparts in Europe, and worked the fields along with their male relations as well as participated in business. Women were even allowed to be seigneurs, due to the fact that many men were involved in the fur trade or military, and/or often died before their wives, thus willing to them their land and titles.
