Hi all,

I am one half of a merge request and we have agreed the two profiles are the same person but are unsure of which name spelling to choose as the final one, as sources conflict.

Any suggestions?

The name gets written with an O mostly, not an A.  As a note, you will find his mother with the dit name Laliberté, which she used on her marriage to Joseph Dehornay dit Laneuville.  Tracked the generations up a couple, and always with an O, in various spellings.
