Restigouche | Mi’kmaq (1911)

Index: Native Surname Census Extracts

Index: The Mi’kmaq in Canadian Census Records

 

This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records contains many of the same surnames as well as others.

 

HOW TO USE  

1. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on many of the individual surnames to reach that listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).

No Trespassing | A Reflection by Peter Lagasse

Regular readers will know Peter Lagasse as the writer of a series of family history articles on some American Lagasses (see link below) but today Peter is giving us something a little different. He’s sharing his take on a delicate situation that many of us have faced.

Guest Post: Peter Lagasse

Research Can Lead You to Some Signs of “NO TRESPASSING”

Being an “Ancestor Detector” can bring many hours of enjoyment. Even when you hit those brick walls that don’t want to come down, there is a feeling of being a Scotland Yard detective determined to find the lose brick that will bring the wall tumbling down. What a thrill of victory comes over you as the wall falls. It is as if you have just won a gold medal in the Olympic Games.

However, researching your family can also lead you down paths that are not so endearing. It can lead you to a person that you were not expecting or had forgotten. And I’m not talking about the deceased ancestor that has a skeleton in his or her closet. Though, I’m sure, we have all run into some of those too. I’m speaking about a living member of the family. Maybe it is an unknown sibling or someone the family has rarely mentioned. This brings us to a different place in our detective work.

What do I do with the new found information? How can I verify this find without upsetting the “apple cart”? Should I make contact with this person? And what do I do if there is a “NO TRESPASSING” sign placed in my path?
