Index: First Nations and Metis Surname Lists

 

This is an index to posts where I list the surnames of indigeneous and Metis peoples from across Canada. Most of the surnames on these first three lists are from Canadian marriage records and census documents from the late 19th to the mid 20th century. Some of the surnames only appear once or a few times.
