  1. This is so confusing! I Know for a fact someone along the line married an Abnaki woman (highly doubt a “he” would have taken her last name that resulted in “duby”)

    Strong french/canadian genes …had to be a “french guy and an Abnaki woman) obviously, this entire post is purely out of frustration but someone figured it out 20 years ago so there has to be a way

    • I would start looking under Dubé… Abenaki may prove difficult due to various relocations. Good luck
