It may be difficult to prove that Alphonsine Trudeau is "Full Blooded American Indian" for two reasons; Her parents were both born in French Canada and all the census records seem to record her as being white. Perhaps the only way to definitively prove would be to do a DNA test.

In the most simplistic form a "Dit" name is an alias given to a family, for more information you may want to check out this website; http://wwwfrancogene.com/quebec/ditnames.php

Hope this helps,
Laurie
