Author: philo13 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.canada.newfoundland.centralnewfoundland/42.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hello I am a descendant of Paul Petit dit Lalumiere, born 1662 in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada. Paul was the son of Nicolas-Romain Petit dit Lapree and Marie Pomponnelle, both who came from France to New France in 1649 and 1656. Paul was not baptized with the "dit" name Lalumiere, he came to add that "dit" name to his name Petit at some point in his life. My hunch is that he took on that name when in the Militia in 1721 when he was a captain in the local Militia, I don't have any proof however. If anyone has any information or suggestions as to how he acquired the "dit" name Lalumiere, I would be grateful. Merci, thank you, Janet Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
