Main Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis [Canadian Census Extracts]

These census posts  are part of a larger project to identify the surnames that have appeared among Indigenous, Metis and Mixed-heritage people over the past few hundred years across what is now Canada. 

Wherever possible, I’ve posted census links to the individual surnames – but either way there is always a link to the overall census at the foot of the post under External Links.  In addition, some of the older posts have orange colour coding. If a surname is orange-coloured it means that it appears in the marriage records on this site. Unfortunately, for technical reasons, the most recent posts don’t yet have this orange coding.

You may also be interested in two companion series of posts. The first  – Canadian Marriage Extracts,  consists of transcribed marriage records. The second more recent project is a steadily growing series of Surname Anchor Posts.  Each surname post is dedicated to just one surname and its variations across Canada and over the past few hundred years. 

Note:  The goal of all these projects is to arrive at a representative sampling of the surnames. The list is not comprehensive and it relies primarily on settler records (non-indigenous). In all cases, indigenous peoples have the true knowledge of these surnames and of their peoples’ genealogy. 

This project is meant simply  as a jumping-off point for people who want to answer the questions: Has one of my surnames ever appeared in connection with indigenous or mixed-heritage records?  And if  so, where and when and among which peoples?

  1. Kwe!

    We heard in both our families a friend and I that our great-grand-mothers had the name CHAYER for my side and for his CHAILLÉ. On his side, it had been said that the woman was an Ojibway. Do you have any knowledge of a relation with this nation and people under this family name?

    Merci! O:nen! Françoise de Montigny-Pelletier

    • Hello, It’s nice to hear from you again! I have not come across information about this. I hope some day to have a chance to look into it more closely. Hopefully someone else of that surname will see your comment. Good luck with your search, Evelyn
