Edmonton West I.R. | Beaver, Cree, Saulteaux, Slavey, Stoney (1921)

Main Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts

This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis [Marriage Records]scontains many of the same surnames as well as others.

HOW TO USE  

1. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on many of the individual surnames to reach that listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).

Joseph Duguay and Elizabeth Leblanc | Pabos, Gaspe, Quebec

Pabos Gaspesie

 

Query from Melissa Doyle

I am looking for some information about my family. More specifically of their First Nations heredity.
The information given as to my knowledge is:
Joseph Hubert Duguay born in June 24, 1912 in Miscou, New Brunswick. He married Elizabeth in Pabos, Quebec (not sure of the date or maiden name). Elizabeth was born in Gaspe Bay, Quebec ( not sure of the date in1890). I am confused if the date of 1912 is really the year they were married and not his birthdate like I was told because she would have been 22 years older then him. Doesn’t sound right.

My questions are would you know the dates of both the birth of Elizabeth and her maiden name and the date of her marriage to Joseph?
As well, would you know what their First Nations heredity was?
I am also wondering if their daughter Loretta Marie Duguay was taken off the band list after marrying Austin James Laviolette in 1934 because he was a not First Nations?
Thank you for your help if you can.

Wayback Machine – Volunteer Help Needed!

 

Recently I’ve noticed that large numbers of personal websites have disappeared because they’ve been retired or in some cases like Geocities, the internet provider has retired the service.  I am presently using the free version of WordPress which means that if something happens to me the site will continue for as long as WordPress offers the service – but it may yet disappear someday.
