My question also. I had researched a couple of years ago and found information that my mother had Mi'cMak Indian in her DNA. However, I could never trace it to confirmation. Last week, I decided to Google the Brideau name, just in case I could conjure up something new or something I needed on any of my relatives. WOW! came across the information I had originally given (sans dates and places) to Ancestry and My Heritage a few years ago. My Ancestry.com profile is still active;, but I stopped subscribing to MyHeritage a couple of years ago due to the fact it was so time consuming and there were so  many profiles on the same person. Also, I had paid my subscription for the year, which is required, and it was mostly lost money because I stopped using it.

When  I came across the Google/MyHeritage information, it apparently was the original information I had downloaded, except, the Mi'kMac name was part of her profile!  Also, there were pictures and documents there; but one must pay a subscription in order to use them. I was able to print the pictures, but not the documents.

BTW - there were quite a few with the surname hache who also were part Indian, some of whom I recall being in my ancestry line.

Showed the pictures to my daughter and she agreed with me that Marie Angele (Hache) Mi'cMak Indian Brideau resembled my mother quite a bit. I have a profile of my Grandmother, Marie Angele, here on WikiTree and have researched here and also on Ancestry, and there are no pictures nor documents available.

Any one here have anything?

Not according to SA White.


Of course, it doesn't mean that there wasn't inter-marring with the Mi'kmaq along the way!

If you are related to Guillaume Caplan, you could have Mi'kmaq Indian in your DNA.

Guillaume Caplan (St-Nicolas de Graves, Gascogne, France) settled in Baie des Chaleurs in 1705. He married a Micmac Indian and they had children.
