  1. My Great Grandmother was Evelyn Bourque, from Sunny Brae. According to my father she was of Mi’Kmaw descent, however I cannot find any information about her, other than that her father was Alphie Bourque. I have reached out to several agencies with no luck. Do you know how I would find out information on this side of my family? My great grandfather, her husband, was George Carroll, he was in WW1, worked for CN and played for the Montreal Maroons and Boston Bruins in 1924-25.
    Thanks and take care.
