Hi cuz
We have Native American blood in us because I did a DNA on me! I have a picture of Florence Beaulieu-Dahl-Ojibwa-Circa-1910


Florence lived in White Earth. In Red Lake – you have to have someone enrolled there. It seems your side is more in the White Earth area. Red Lake has a checklist that is needed in order to be considered – you would have to be at least 1/4 Red Lake which means your parent would have to be 1/2. Red Lake does not accept DNA tests that states ethnicity – they go direct blood lines. I know White Earth was talking about changing their enrollment so maybe you can contact their enrollment department and see what is needed. If I was you – I would start collecting birth certificates from your relatives that you feel are enrolled either in Red Lake or White Earth. If your trying to use Queen of the Skies blood – she w as a Lake Superior Ojibwe and I don’ know what their enrollment process is like. I do have friends that I went to school with that are from there – I can ask them what the requirements are. Julie

  1. Good afternoon

    My name is John A. Beaulieu, of Portland, ME.

    My line is: Stephen A. Beaulieu, Jr. 1915-1978 Portland, ME
    Stephen A. Beaulieu, Sr. 1882-1960 Portland, ME
    James Hudson Beaulieu 1854-1922 Portland, ME
    Paul Hudson Beaulieu 1823 (Quebec)-1871 Portland, ME

    That’s all I have. I can trace my father’s maternal line back to 982 A.D., but what you see is all I can find of his paternal line.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
    John A. Beaulieu
    Portland, ME

    • Hello,
      You would need to list the wives – especially the two furthest back (James Hudson Beaulieu and Paul Hudson Beaulieu) to narrow down the records search.
      Thank you,
      P.S. and if one of the couples has some children born in Quebec that would also help.

      • Hi Evelyn

        Any luck finding my ancestor line any further back than Paul Hudson Beaulieu?
        This is a total mystery because everything seems to stop at him.

        Anything you can find would be greatly appreciated.

        • Hi John, I am researching this line for a 2nd great grandson of James H. Beaulieu through his daughter Hattie who married Fred A. Thomas in Portland Maine. Despite my last name this is not my husband’s line but my step-father-in-law’s. I would love to swap info and see if we can crack this line together. If you ever see this comment please reply and let me know if you want to connect!

          • Hi Maigen!!!!
            Fred Thomas married my grandfather’s sister Harriet. My grandfather is Stephen Augustus Beaulieu, Sr. Fred was a well respected chemist who worked on the Manhattan Projest. He and Aunt Harriet eventually settled in the town of Sebago Lake, ME.
            What you saw in my email is all of the information I have, which isn’t much. SAB Sr married Charlotte F. Ilsley, a line I can trace back to medieval England. My Beaulieu line is limited to 3 generations, as you can see on the website. So good to hear from you!

          • Hi Maigen

            I haven’t heard from you for a couple of weeks, so I hope you’re still checking this site. I’d love to connect and compare what we have. I know I don’t have much, would love to see what you have. You can email me direct at jbeaulieu3@maine.rr.com. Again, I’d love to hear from you.

            All the best

    • Hi John. Isn’t it fun trying to find non-English ancestors? My name is Gail Bouleau, only because some official at one time spelled it wrong. Ten years ago we located the rest of our family – descendants of Alfred Beaulieu. I am going to make the leap and presume that at some point we have a common ancestor. If that is the case, you have an error in your names. It is not Hudson, but Hudon. Until the mid-1800s the surname was Hudon dit Beaulieu. Then they seem to have decided that was a bit much and shortened it to Beaulieu. That was a mistake. Appparently when French settlers arrived in Canada they added the area they had originated to their name. Pierre Hudon arrived in Canada in 1665. All of his children were born in Canada. There last name became Hudon dit Beaulieu. Many of my ancestors seem to have remained in Quebec, particularly in the area of Rivière-Ouelle, QC. I do know that some of the family went south during the Expulsion though as I have been in touch with a man from the Boston area. If you think some of my early information ( starting in 1617) may be useful, allowing you to try moving forwards and backwards, let me know. My e-mail address is: egbouleau@gmail.com

      • Hi Gail
        Thank you for reading and responding to my post. As you can see, I’m pretty much dead in the water with my Beaulieu line. I know about the Hudon dit aspect of my name, but according to my great grandfather James’ birth record, his middle name is listed as Hudson, and my great-great grandfather Paul’s middle name is listed as Hudson on the same record.
        Confusing? Absolutely!
        As you read, I can only trace Paul’s birthplace as Quebec, and nothing else. I hope someone has information that sheds more light on my Beaulieu lineage. Your info looks promising.
        Please keep in touch.
        Many thanks

    • I just found this on Ancestry. It might get you a little further.

      Paul Hudon Dit BEAULIEU

      Spouse: Harriet E. Richardson
      Father: Antoine Hudon Dit BEAULIEU
      Mother: Elizabeth Leblance
      Children: James Hudson
      Birth: Mar 1824 Canada
      Death: 29 Jul 1871 Portland, Cumberland, Maine, USA

      Maybe that will help get you started again. Good luck.
