Guertin, Cousineau, Taillefer (Metis, Algonquin?) | Evelyn in Montreal

[Note to readers: help needed on this one 🙂 ]

I am looking for native connections to Algonquin with the name Scholastique Cousineau who married Clément Guertin on Nov. 4th, 1844 in Aylmer, Quebec. She is Algonquin but I need a positive connection that says so. She may have come from Lake of Two Mountains or Golden Lake. I’ve already been to and checked with the Kitigan Zibi without success. To me, it would mean the difference between ‘fiction and non-fiction’ in my novel writing. your help would be greatly appreciated. Norman Continue reading

First Peoples Genealogy and History

Quebec Native Genealogy | Wendake Huron

The life histories of Natives, First Peoples and Metis from Eastern Canada can be  notoriously difficult to trace. The first – and perhaps greatest – layer of difficulty for genealogists and family  historians is the late adoption of  western surname usage (stable family names handed down from parent to child). This has led to given individuals in certain time periods carrying multiple surnames over a lifetime by choice or by usage on Westernized documents. In some cases (such as Kahnawake) individuals carried original surnames, switched (or were switched to) Westernized surnames – and then back again.

The second layer of difficulty is that Native surnames were transcribed phonetically which led to spelling variations in the various official documents (that is, between different church registers, census documents, border crossings etc.). A last difficulty is with the varying quality and methodologies of the different indexing projects which makes it difficult to access the primary documents (microfilmed records) and cross-check with other indexes. My eventual goal is create a Master Index of Names carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in what is now Eastern Canada.

Note 1  Over 90% of the couples listed are extracted from marriage records at Ancestry.com, Familysearch.org,  BMS2000, and the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Vital Records.

Note 2      When the date is missing and you see  Married: ? before ____   instead, it means that the couple is listed on the marriage record of a descendant, so the before date given is based on the marriage of the child.  Example:

D’ailleboust/Diabo Karonhiohare, Michel  | D’ailleboust/Diabo Tsiotenhariio Agathe 

Married: Before 1890

Note 3   I have begun to include some couples who are listed in census records as Native or Metis for whom I haven’t found the marriage records, or for whom the records are missing (e.g. church destroyed), In some cases (especially pre 1850s), I’m listing Metis or Native couples who may not have been married in the Western marriage system and who are listed in census documents as couples. In those cases it will say: Married: ? before ________ followed by the census date and location.  Example:

Williams, John | Unknown surname, Fanny

Married: ? before 1911 (Census, Rigolet, NFLD & Labrador)

Note 4  As the dates get more modern I suppress some information. In the 1940s I list just the year, in the 1950s I state  early, mid or late ’50s.  Anytime you see a year without month and day,  please feel free to contact me for more information.

The child from this marriage was:

HISTORICAL DOCUMENT: Angleharte & Huard

Who: Marie Angleharte, Alexandre Huard + Chappado

 Family Connection:  ancestor, Luce M-line  Where: Paspebiac, Quebec, Canada

___________________________________________________________________

This is the original entry for Jean Huard and Marie Angleharte‘s marriage from the Notre-Dame-de-la-Purification in Paspebiac. The basic information confirms my records which dates their marriage to January 30th, 1826, and confirms their parentage. Alexandre Huard was the son of Jean Huard and Madeleine Denys while Marie’s parents were Jean Baptiste Anglehardt and Anne Chappado. Marie had Amerindian – Native (metis) heritage.

Something new that I learned was that Marie’s father was already deceased on that date. Another useful fact regards Marie’s surname. In fact when her parents were married their names were registered as follows: Jean Baptiste Migkelharte and Anne Chappadeau. I knew that Anglehart/Migkelhart were the same family but I always wondered when Anglehart came into use. Now I know it was used at the beginning of the 1800s.

Those researching this lineage sure have their work cut out for them!
