Hi Ron, My ancestor was Joseph Lebrun dit Laforest who married Elizabeth Danis dit Tourangeau in 1760 at Ste Genevieve de Pierrefonds, Quebec. He was born to Joseph Lebrun and Catherine Bernard at Lucheux, in the north of France. It is very possible that we have a connection in France. I am working on the Lebruns in North France, and I will watch for Lebrun Carrier. I'm not sure if they used their dit name back in France. It looks like the dit name was a Canadian invention??? Has anyone found any dit names back in France?
