It would be helpful I believe, to use the correct French spelling for all those of French descent, who know their name is properly spelled Condé, to use the acute accent over the e, to properly identify themselves and to distinguish themselves from other nationalities using similar spelling (Puerto Rican, etc.) but who do not use the é. This is done easily by typing Cond and then while holding down on the Alt key, type in 0233 on the NUMERICAL keyboard. As Condé. This should clarify things a bit.

Hello, my grandmother's maiden name was Conde (sorry the accent wouldn't work for me).She was born in Charleroi, Belgium. Do you have any information on this branch of that family....she married my grandfather...Victor Dethier and came to U.S. with him in 1902. According to census figures, she had 10 children...only two lived to be adults...my father and his sister. At least as far as I have been able to ascertain.
Any information or leads to further research will be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I simply disagree. I am Conde from Puerto Rico but our roots are traced back to France. What should be noted is that we are all from the same origins but the name itself morphed a little bit especially when entering other non-francophone countries where the accent mark was automatically cut off. This is very common to have happened. A little over 30% of Puerto Ricans can trace their ancestry to Corsica (yes a French Island) which explains why there are so many French and Italian Surnames in Puerto Rico.

My surname is spelled Condé. My father is from a guinee, a part of Africa near Côte d'Ivoire, where my mother is from. In those areas the French had taken over, you know in the 'olden days', and now everyone there speaks French. My parents speak fluent french. We live in America, I was born in New York. Could it be possible that I am French?
