What is the correct surname for children of Antoine Buque dit St-Roc?

+2 votes
One of my ancestor's spouse was Antoine Buque dit St-Roc and some variations, but the dit part or St-Roc seems to have become the only surname used for the children's baptisms. I understand our concept of LNAB, so I guess in a way I am answering my own question that I should go with what is on the baptism records. I will put some explanation in the bios.

Father: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Buque-1
WikiTree profile: Marie Anne St-Roc

Detailing with Quebecois "dit names" can be confusing. These have their own guideline here on WikiTree, set by the Quebecois Project:



So, to establish a guideline on how they should be used in Wikitree:

The surname of a child should always be the surname of the father on the baptism, without the dit name (unless illegitimate of course, in which case it will be recorded under the mother's name). If the father is recorded as Jean Doublon dit des Rosiers (not a real name), then only Doublon would be used in the LNAB field of the child . Current last name (CLN) can be used to reflect the Doublon dit des Rosiers IF the child actually used it. BUT, if the only name used on the baptism is a dit name, then that is what is recorded in LNAB field.

The name of the father would be recorded as Doublon in LNAB field, and the name Doublon dit des Rosiers would be entered in CLN box, and also des Rosiers would be entered separately in other last name (OLN) field, for search purposes, and because some records only show the dit name by itself.

So generally, if you have "Rocbrune dit Larocque", the surname is "Rocbrune". But in those not-so-rare instances where a child is baptized with only the "Larocque" part, then it may be appropriate for a child to have the "Larocque" surname. However one is supposed to never enter the "full" surname "Rocbrune dit Larocque" in the LNAB field.
