Have been looking a bit into the name Naudin. It seems to occur much more frequently as a surname than as a given name. This makes me wonder if either it or Shorey/Shores/Charest/etc. might have been a "dit name"? Not sure if you've come across this rather curious phenomenon in Quebec (and I'm not completely clear about why they were used) but many people used a second surname of sorts. Like "John Smith, called Jones" only it would be more like "Rene Naudin dit Charest" or "Jean Charest dit Naudin" etc.. Has your grandfather ever talked about this?

Cheers, Michael
