Dictionary of Americanized French-Canadian Names: Onomastics and Genealogy
Name expert Marc Picard’s latest book is must reading for anyone with French-Canadian ancestry (or for institutions serving such a population). Monsieur Picard, who has previously written about the etymologies of the French migrants who settled Quebec and Acadia in the 17th and 18th centuries, now follows the spread of those surnames to various English-speaking parts of North America in his “Dictionary of Americanized French-Canadian Names.” Besides its derivations and Anglicizations, this terrific resource references the first French-Canadian settlers bearing the names found in the dictionary.
