List of Wabanaki Confederacy Surnames of Eastern Canada

Oct. 29th  Post Updated


Introduction

This is a still growing list of surnames carried by members of the Wabanaki Confederacy.  I’ve extracted the names from my transcriptions of Canadian census and marriage records. The goal is to cover the following Wabanaki peoples:

  • the Maliseet of New Brunswick and Quebec
  • the Mi’kmaq of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and finally
  • the Abenaki of Quebec (many still missing 🙂 )

The American Passamaquoddy and Penobscot are also Wabanaki peoples but they are not included unless they happened to appear in Canadian census or marriage records.


 

Details

Most surnames below are colour-coded orange to indicate that the surname appears on this site in the marriage or census transcripts. Continue reading
