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

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

 

The goal of this project 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 reorganize and frequently update information that is currently scattered about the site.

The information is 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 indigeneous people in Canada and if so, 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
