Waswanipi | Cree (1921)

Main Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts

 

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 Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis [Canadian Marriage Extracts]  – 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).
