[Surname] Last Name Young
I have recently been trying to trace the Young side of my family. According to my father the family is French and our ancestors lived in Nova Scotia and where forced out during the Great Expulsion. I was unable to find the name Young in a couple of census from that area that I found. However I did find some evidence that several families changed their name after moving out of Canada. If anyone has any information on this it would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,

The French names that were changed to Young are Dion, Dionne, Guyon, Lajeunesse and Lejeune. Among these, only Lejeune would fit the profile you describe. They would be descendants of Pierre Lejeune dit Briard whom you can read about at
