List of Metis Surnames of Ontario

INTRODUCTION


 

This project is focused on Metis surnames that appear in Ontario and originated primarily with the Metis of western and central Canada. It complements the census and marriage data found elsewhere on the site and is intended as a finding aide.

Most surnames on this list were initially extracted from the Metis Nation of Ontario lists, after which I added others from the next two or three generations who descended from those families.

 

 

SOURCES


The marriages in my database are derived from various sources such as provincial vital records, Metis scrip, the Genealogical Society of Utah, Groupe BMS2000 etc. I do not copy information directly from other secondary or tertiary sources, so there is a lot of “alternative” spelling in the surnames and names, and my records often vary from those of the Metis Nation of Ontario lists.

Native First Peoples Metis Marriages


The indigenous peoples of Canada have their own written and oral historical knowledge  to draw on when researching their family trees. Unfortunately, for non-indigenous family historians who believe they might have First Nations bloodlines, and who are not connected to a particular indigenous group it can be difficult to know where to even start to trace their lines. This index and the Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts) are Finding Aides to help such family historians by listing and locating surnames which have been carried by indigenous people across Canada over the past 150 years or so.

Fulgence Roy Losier

QUERY


Seeking family info:
Fulgence Roy DOB -May 16, 1830 Cacouna
Maliseet First Nations??
Any info you can provide
Thanks,
Odette

INFORMATION


I see several records at BMS2000 – nothing to answer your specific question but the different dat spellings might help with your search –

Fulgence Roy Losier was born on May 8th, 1830, St. Georges Parish, Cacouna, Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec. He was baptized on May 16th, 1830.

His father was Fulgence Roy Losier and he was a farmer. (In case you’re unaware, Losier can be Lauzier).

The mother was Fany Antille.

The godparents were Antoine Roy Losier and Marguerite Gagnon.

There is a marriage three years previously between a Fulgence Roy and Stephanie Anctil (Source: BNS2000) which I presume to be the parents of your Fulgence.

Fulgence Roy (son of Clement Roy and Marie-Anne Gagnon) and Stephanie Anctil (daughter of Louis Anctil and Perpetue Ouellet) were married on January 30th, 1827 in Ste. Anne Parish in Ste.-Anne-de-la=Pocatiere, Kamouraska, Quebec.

Erratum: August Werner Schellenberg Metis [self-identified Metis] Actor

ERRATUM

Inter left this message –

I almost hate to ask, but is there any documentary evidence that August Schellenberg had Indigenous ancestry?

It’s looking like his mother was an English immigrant. See this page (especially the comments section).
https://ethnicelebs.com/august-schellenberg.

 

Thanks so much for your comment, Iter.

When I first wrote this post in 2014, I accepted at face value that when someone proclaimed indigenous ancestry AND  it was being touted on so many mainstream sites including the National Arts Council – then it must be true. That was a serious mistake and I apologize for adding to that misconception.

I did some new searches this morning at BM2000 and I find no traces of his mother that would allow me to see First Nations ancestry. Tt doesn’t mean it isn’t true – but I see no evidence of it. Continue reading
