Ligondès or Ligondez?

Since I created the first one of these and my French rusty at best, some sources spell this surname as "Ligondez", others as "Ligondès".  The old books that are digitized seem to use Ligondez but the geneanet links use Ligondès so I went with that one.  If you read the research notes you can look at the sources I found so far. Thanks for your comments!

Another thing you can do is use the 'Other Last Name(s)' field for the other spellings.

In Dictionnaire de la noblesse, contenant les généalogies, l'histoire et la ..., the entry for the family reads "Ligond'es [sorry, I can't get the accent grave correct] ou Ligondez".  In other words, they are interchangeable, so Bob Jewett's suggestion to use other last name for one of the two is spot on.

I missed that detail, thanks. The BnF needs to digitize more recent works than 1775! :)
