I have a couple of names in my family tree that are French in origin. Can someone here please explain to me what the meaning of "dit" is? How is it used and what is it's significance. Thank you. By the way, I've spent several hours at the "Sauve Family History" site. What a tremendous amount of information. Took me back 300 years from my great grandmother. Thanks again, Lauren Edgar
