Re: Dossett original name
Calling the expelled Acadians Huguenots is like calling a American Revolutionary Hero a British Loyalist.

There is no attempt to merge Acadians with Huguenots, only that Huguenots were expelled along with the Acadians during the Great Expulsion from Nova Scotia (per Google Wikipedia).
Since my family lineage is from Virginia, there may be no family connection with the Nova Scotia Dossetts.
