Can anyone tell me what the French word "surveille" means? I have seen this in many vital records where the priest is indicating when someone was born, or when someone has died (e.g., "decede la surveille" or "nee la surveille"). I was told that this should actually be written as "sur la veille", but I have not found any records that use that phrase. I suspect that "surveille" means "the day before yesterday". Can anyone confirm this for me?
