On 25 Apr 2020 Judith (Labrie) Srom wrote on Santerre_dit_Lancognard-1:

I've checked LaFrance and I find Lancognard dit Santerre to be correct, but some children have Santerre or Lancognard for their last names, and when you check Généalogie du Québec et d'Amérique française and follow it back from this profile it changes to Lancognard dit Santerre. To be specific Pierre Lancognard dit Santerre ID No. 1045173 married to Marie-Madeleine Dube ID No. 1045174. All 9 of their children are Lancognard. It's when you get to the children of their son Jean-Bernard Lancognard dit Santerre ID No. 132926 (LaFrance d1p_31161003.jpg) married to Marie-Josephe Theriault ID No. 132917 is when their childrens last names start to be either Lancognard or Santerre. Opinions please.

hi Judith,

Not sure what your question is, but basically that is pretty much the progression of names with the presence of a ''dit'' name.  If you look at the example cited on the Québécois project page, you will see the man had not 1 but 2 ''dit'' names, just to add to the confusion, and children got baptized with any one of the 3 names.  Some get dropped right away, some stick around for a long time, and eventually due to the English not understanding these, in the mid to late 1800s they required people to pick one or the other for themselves and their children.  Some families then hyphenated the two names to preserve them.

As a note, Nos Origines is a tree site and does not follow our naming conventions for either personal names or place names, so beware.

also, last name at birth needs to be corrected, dit names don't go in there.
That's what I'm asking, since he had two dit names which LNAB is correct?
the one on the baptism, in this instance he is baptized Pierre Bernard Santerre.
