An adoptee, I grew up with the information my birth mother was Scottish/Irish & my birth father Dutch. I found my birth mother, primarily English, Scottish, & Irish, with some Dutch & 2 French ancestors - Bovee & Trude. The exact origin is not known of Bovee (Boffee, Beauvais) and Trude came from France pre-revolution but the exact name is not known Trude, Trudeaux, Trudeau. I had a DNA match with a paternal half-brother recently. It turns out our mutual paternal grandfather emigrated from SW France (Charente-Maritime) to Quebec alone (hence most of those ancestors may still be in France)(surnames Davias, Ravet or Rivet, Juet, Taugé, Renou, Poguet) and paternal grandmother's ancestry is French-Canadian (Labelle, Thivierge, Sauvé, Thibault, Montpetit, Jolie/Joly, Diotte, Meilleur, Lauzon, Darragon dit LaFrance, Morin, Martel) many generations living in Quebec & Canada. There may be a small amount of Acadian on that side of the family. I've also been told I may have some Mi'kmaq First Nation ancestry but I'm not sure. It's only been about 3 months since I found my paternal ancestry and I'm still in shock.
