SPENCER STREET LISTS

Some random street lists. Take note of the number of Collettes (29), Letendres (18), Lacroix (16) and Lamoureux (13). Those are the registered males over the age of 20. In the early 70's, when I worked for the T&G out of their Spencer office, we compiled a list of the most numerous family names in the street list. I recall that in 1970, there were 59 Letendres and 52 Lacroix topping the list. By then, the list was integrated by gender. There was always an anticipation of using it for a column some slow news day, but that never happened.
