Index: Indigenous, Metis & Mixed-Heritage Surname Anchor Posts

Index of Canada-wide Indigenous, Metis & Mixed-heritage surnames

The goal of this project is to create a series of mini-indexes that make it easier to access information about surnames on this site that are associated with indigenous, Metis or mixed-heritage individuals. Each post below serves to organize the  information that is currently scattered about the site. There are frequent updates.

.

The information is primarily intended for non-indigenous people who are searching for historical family ties to First Nations peoples and who would like to answer this question: Has my surname ever been associated with the indigenous peoples of  Canada and if so, with which peoples, and when and where?

.

This information is not intended for people who are attempting to join specific First Nations or Metis peoples. Each First Nation and Metis organization has its own experts for that purpose. Each nation reaches its own judgement about membership based on its own nation’s knowledge, traditions and community circumstances.

.

Good luck to everyone in your search for your ancestors of whatever heritage.

  1. Hopefully you are going to add Lanteigne to this list as we go back to one of the first French men to marry Native and cross to many more native/Metis surnames.

  2. Hello Evelyn, I recently found a Baptism Record for my Husband’s 3rd great Grandmother on his Mother’s side and I am not sure if I am reading it correctly. It is in French and I am completely English speaking/writing as is my husband. I have tried to translate it, and what I have been able to decipher is that she was marked as illegitimate by the priest. There is also a name beside hers that I am assuming that it is her last name. I saved the document in the hopes that I could find someone to translate it. I thought that I would ask your advice regarding the translating. The name on the document is Francoise “Timiskamang” daughter of Louis Laplante and a Marie Cou…. She was married to Francois Pilon; I believe his middle name was Xavier. I believe the date of the baptism is on May 24, 1779.
    Is there a website that can translate documents like that?
    Thank you in advance.
    Tammy,
    P.S. if you need to email me, you can reach me at, Tammy.Daub@icloud.com

    • Hello Shelley, this is Evelyn – the same person leaving comments in the Facebook group 🙂 I would need to know what type of “Metis card” that your siblings have? Who issued the card? Which surnames it is based on? Thanks.

    • For your reference, the Metis (with a capital M) are based in the West, and in Ontario.

  6. I have names and dates of my ancestry, yet I do not see our name added to the list? My genealogy was here in the new world as early as the 1500’s. Please share with me any updates.

    • Hello Roger,
      Yes, you’re 100% correct, the Sasseville surname goes way back 🙂
      If you’re referring to the French Canadian Pioneer posts, as stated in the preamble –
      “The list is not comprehensive. It contains surnames from my family trees and other family trees I’ve worked on as well as surnames that appear in my First Nations, Metis and Mixed-heritage projects.
      The Sasseville surname has not popped up to often in my research so that micropost hasn’t been created. No offence was intended!
      Evelyn
