Abenakis Abenaquis Surnames and genealogy

This is where I place links for extracts of census records for the Abenaki in Canada. The Abenaki belong to the Wabanaki Confederacy which includes (in Canada)  the Maliseet of Quebec and New Brunswick and the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. The Canadian Abenaki are a less populous people and are centered only in southern Quebec.

Each census link below leads to a post with a list of the surnames carried by the Abenaki 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.

I have also listed some Abenaki-related Surname Anchor posts down below. Each of these posts collects all the information for a given surname that appears on this blog.

If you are looking for Abenaki marriages, then you can also consult the  Index of Native, First Peoples and Metis Surnames which includes a selection of extracts from Abenaki marriage records as well as couples listed as parents on baptismal certificates or the marriage records of their offspring.
