How does standardization of spelling affect Chiasson/Giasson

+4 votes
When does Chiasson become Giasson. My family oral history ties us back to the acadian Chiasson's from France. My Grandfather was born Giasson in the late 1800's

I don't know if this was otherwise answered, but I was often told that Giasson was only used in Quebec - I never heard it in the Atlantic provinces or Gaspé, where Chiasson always seems to be used. I believe they are mostly descended from the same ancestral line.
