Welcome to my blog ~ ~ A Canadian Family ~ ~ home of the online magazine - A Festival of Postcards – and lots of genealogical & historical information about my mostly Acadian & French Canadian ancestors, as well as other special topics such as The Iroquois of Kahnawa:ke, The Forestry Industry of Eastern Canada and … well … anything that strikes my fancy! If you have something to say, don’t be shy. I always love to hear from readers!

This is an index of posts relating to people (mainly French Canadans)
who have lived in Kahnawake at one point or another.
Newspaper articles and various documents have always been a rich source of data for family historians and genealogists. For those researching their Aboriginal roots they are particularly useful resources because they frequently include surname variations which can then help us when combing through core genealogical sources such as church and census records. This is an index – in chronological order – of extracts from a variety of resources that I’ve run across while researching topics related to Kahnawakke.
Note: These documents are from non-Native sources, thus they frequently reflect the prejudices, patronizing attitudes, misunderstandings or different world-view of those who are not from Kahnawà:ke .
