Index: Native Surname 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 Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records contains many of the same surnames as well as others.


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).

    • Hello jessie,
      I had not added the external link to the Canadian Census but I’ve done so now. Reload the post, scroll down to the link and when you arrive at the Census page scroll down to the very bottom for the link to Pointe Blene.
      Good luck with your search!
      P.S. If you eventually hit a brick wall feel free to leave the couple names and I’ll try to help.

  2. I was told my great grandfather was Of Montagnais descent… how do I go about finding out if it’s true. I’m interested in finding out my heritage. His name was Damase Verreault… married Celine Lavoie in St Flavie Quebec in about 1891

    • Hello,
      I would recommend you check the census for 1881 and 1901 to see whether there’s any indication there. I am unable to help at the moment but if you make no progress leave another note next month and I’ll see what I can do.
      Good luck with your search.
