Nipigon House Post | Ojibway, Chippewa (1911)

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 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).

  1. I found the last name “Fournier” under this page (https://acanadianfamily.wordpress.com/2017/07/21/nipigon-house-post-ojibway-keep-styling-the-names-and-schedule-for-the-21st/) and am wondering if you can tell me more about the genealogy of this last name. I have a great grandfather by the name of John Fournier and he originally lived in New Brunswick, born there in 1876. I can also tell you that John married Agnes Cordelia Doucet (who is also from New Brunswick, born in 1882), and her mother was Christine Godin (or Marie Christine Godin), all of Gloucester New Brunswick. I have always been told we have first nations and/or Metis heritage and I am trying to trace the bloodlines for my family history. Thank you in advance for any information.
