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.

On 23 Feb. 1721 the parish priest of Saint-François-du-Lac, Jean-Baptiste Dugast, ordered from him a tabernacle similar “to the one which he, Leblond, previously made for the Recollet fathers in that town [Trois-Rivières] and which is now on the high altar of their church.” In addition to the necessary wood, Jacquiés received 350 livres in money and 20 pounds of tobacco.
