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

Each of these posts is dedicated to one surname that is carried by someone connected to indigenous, Metis or mixed-heritage people in Canada.  Please be aware that it’s a synthesis of the information I’ve collected in my personal research throughout the years and is by no means complete!

  • Misc.:  1.  These links are related to the Adam, Adams and Adam dit Laramee surnames. I believe that most Adam dit Laramie descendants adopted the Laramee surname, but when searching in 20th century databases you’ll want to try searching with both names.  2.  One line of Metis Adams descends from Englishman George Adams and his mixed-heritage wife Anne Haywood through son Joseph Adams and Elizabeth Bird, grandson Joseph Charles Adams and Harriet Johnstone, and great-grandson Percival Adams and Miriam McLeod (see below for external link to their family history).
