Marie-Josèphe Julien dit St-Julien had her Current Name changed to that of her husband today. Since women in Québec did not routinely do that should we require proof of such a change for any such changes?

Helmut Jungschaffer .. Do you want some collaboration help on this profile ? I have sources and information I could add. 

C'est Bon Magnifiue .. 

no, but last name at birth needs fixing, should be either Julien OR St-Julien, not both, need to go look at baptism to determine which.  Dit names don't go there unless they were the only name recorded.

Looks like a well-meaning error in cleaning up after a merge.
