Index: The Maliseet in Canadian Census Records

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

This is where I place links to my growing collection of Canadian census records of the Maliseet (aka Malecite) people in Canada. Each link below leads to a post with a list of the surnames carried by Maliseet  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 only to records that you can access free of charge.

Please note that the records were created by settlers so they followed settler naming practices and applied new location names.

I wish to acknowledge (as a settler) that these were traditional territories

that were already inhabited and named by indigenous peoples.

If you are looking for Maliseet (or Mi’kmaq) marriages, then you’ll also want to consult the  Index of Native, First Peoples and Metis Surnames which includes extracts from many Maliseet and Mi’kmaq marriage records as well as couples listed as parents on baptismal certificates or the marriage records of their offspring.
