I have a lot of ancestors from Oka deux montagnes..
Oka was an assimilation camp ( project) for french settlers to assimilate indians...
The church was burnt.. they blamed a native. Joseph ONASAKENRAT
Records and proof are very hard to come by...
He was found not guilty from what i read. Does anyone know the history?
Frustrating.. its a huge project.. i wish i had the time, money and patience to solve this riddle... any takers?? Haha
I have pdfs to send... about an oka project i read and downloaded from a researcher.
Eric Pouliot-Thisdale, "1786-1800 Oka Mission Parish registers
I see his work has already been submitted across wikitree butni would like to get descendants of this village or area and see what else we can compile?
