For ancient French-Canadian and Acadian burials, where there are no grave markers, surnames are listed the way they are spelled on the margin of the burial record in the parish register. Dit names, if not included on the margin of the register, and PRDH index spellings if different, are listed in the "nickname" section.

Inconnu is not a given name or surname. It means unknown in French. I prefer using the PRDH solution of xxxxx but that is not allowed here yet.

With very rare exceptions, Acadian and French-Canadian women are listed in parish burial records using the surname they were born with, so the "maiden name" section is left blank.

Regarding burials of Acadians recorded in the parish register of Québec, Notre-Dame-de-Québec, beginning in 1756. There is no mention of which one of the three cemeteries the burials took place in, other than some initials on the margin of the entry. I have placed them in Cimetière de l'Hôpital-Général de Québec, also known as Cemetery of the Poor.

For those not familiar with FamilySearch, you will need to create a free account there if you wish to see the images of the burial records I have provided a source for. Once you have done that:

From the home screen, select Search on the top banner. Select Records from the drop-down menu. Scroll down to Find a Collection and start typing Quebec in the Collection Title box.

Select Canada, Quebec Catholic Parish Registers, 1621-1979 from the drop-down menu. Select BROWSE ALL 1,398,741 IMAGES. Choose the town from the next screen, the parish from the next, then the correct church register. Put the image number in the white box on the screen after that and hit enter.
