  1. Hello, I’m looking for information on Abraham Obey and he was our great grandfather. We know he came from First Nations Mi”kmaq tribe New Brunswick . We did find birth date, death certificate but looking for what reserve he would have been from. Any help would be appreciated. His daughter was Ida Obey and she married my grandfather. Trying to find their native background which I always wanted to do. Thanks in advance
