Mi'kmaq genealogy, census extracts and marriage records. The Micmac of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Quebec.

This is where I place links to my growing collection of Mi’kmaq-related Canadian census records as well as Mi’kmaq surname posts.

Each census link below leads to a post with a list of the surnames carried by Mi’kmaq  in a single given subdistrict at one point in time. Where technically possible, I’ve linked to each surname individually. Where I couldn’t do that I’ve made a  link to the subdistrict. In all cases I’ve linked to records that you can access free of charge.

Each surname post below leads to a post which collates all the information about a given surname that appears on this A Canadian Family blog.

If you are looking for Mi’kmaq-related marriages, then you’ll also want to consult the  Index: Native / First Peoples / Metis Surnames | Marriage Extracts which contains many Mi’kmaq marriages. If you need census records for non-Mi’kmaq  First Nations or Inuit then what you’re looking for is the   Index: Native / First Peoples / Metis Surnames | Census Extracts.

A final way to find information is to use the Search box in the sidebar to your right.

    • Hello Chris,
      Can you provide the name of your great grandmother who was married to a man with the Meuse (or similar) surname?
      Thanks,

  3. Hello,

    I’m wondering if I could have the name “Kate Hurley” looked up in records to see if the last name connects to any Mi’kmaq families through marriage or if she perhaps belonged to a tribe.

    She is a name my family has received in trying to track down the band we belong to and how long ago our family left reserve.

    Thank you.

    • Would you have a time period and the location – at least the province?

  4. Hello, I am looking to find out what group of people my native ancestry is from. My relative is Sophie Babeau. Born April 14, 1819 and died Jan 8, 1890. She married Cyprien Lefebvre and Nov 19, 1839 in St. Constant, Quebec. I am wondering if she was Mi’kmaq
