Research Notes

Note: "Albert Lalonde dit L'Esperance and Marie Angelique Montpetit dit Potvin (dite Poitevin a well established identifier for the French Poitou Region) were married on February 7, 1746 in Montreal, Quebec." [12]

The French identifiers dit L'Esperance and dite Poitevin are identifying something about the person or person's family. They are not a (royal or noble) conveyance such as de or du. They are not an alias, nickname or last name which are incorrect English translations.

French "dit" or "dite" names were identifiers used by French families, that describe or distinguish the person based on a variety of possible definitions including French surname linage, maiden name genealogy, geography, guilds, master craftsmanship, military loyalties, seigneur relationships, military status ...etc etc etc

The Old World French never referred to dits as "last names", "nick names" or "aliases." Many French , Nouvelle France and Louisanne families carried their dit identification from their origins in France, Netherlands and Britain when they migrated to North America. Some Nouvelle France families established their own.

In Albert's case he received his identifier from his father and his ancestors. "L' Esperance" literally translates to "hope." It is added here to further detail his ancestral family. Eventually the use of dit and dite identifiers were dropped as families became nationalized in North America and discontinued in France after the French Revolution. It is unclear if he actually used his identifier. Baraboo-1 13:05, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Albert by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA test-takers in his direct paternal line. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line: It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Albert:

Profile needs clean up as it’s an import and I’m not very good at clean ups. Anyone willing to try?

I agree he died November 10, 1807. Son of Guillaume Lalonde and Sarah Allen.

posted by Andrew Simpier
Albert Lalonde died Nov.10 1807 and was buried 2 days later in Les Cèdres; 87 years old. The 1798 date in St Joseph De Soulanges/Cedres, refers to another Lalonde called Joseph.

Since I have no access to your sources #5,6,&7 listed for his death, I did not dare make any changes and will leave it up to you.

Lalonde-82 and Lalonde-754 appear to represent the same person because: Wife is the same. Clear duplicate.
