Genealogy has been a part of my life for about 18years. I've seen & read many things online over the years, seen many lil wars online about "supposed" facts of the past. Researching is important, then researching more..helps to make sure, what is found, is accurate...Sometimes history surprises us, if we keep an open mind, and just look for the "truth".
my main genealogical profile containing over 12000 names, can be found by asking me
What does the following Quote mean to you as a Genealogist or Family Researcher?
In Reference to Acadian Genealogy from:
Quote- “After dismissing the limitation that we have imposed elsewhere that we are not descendants of native or natives of Acadia further than the generation of their grandchildren, we were able to add more than 260 families in our book.”
genealogical materials- books, historical type docs, Genealogical Society type materials. When I asked a reputable Genealogist (who works sometimes quite closely with this one who said the quote- The "reputable -Genealogist" informed me..."Well, this Genealogist in question- was only requested to do "Acadian" genealogies."....
"Well, this Genealogist in question- was only requested to do "Acadian" genealogies."
I suppose...I got my answer...So...If you are looking for mysteriously missing, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, parents, siblings of different families of Acadian Ancestries, and don't understand why in "Acadian books of marriages, births, deaths," etc.. your pieces of puzzles are missing...maybe you need to be looking in books that have more historical impact and significance...because....books written in time periods in question, include a lot of information, currently lacking in "Acadian" books currently available.
This is my Public Wiki-Profile....and this is who I am, just a Family Researcher interested in Fact Finding on ALL Families...not just interested in finding...specific "bloodline-heritage types"....
What Acadian means to me- ( I think it means..only including those whose families came only from France & continued only bloodlines of only french decendency)...so if you have a marriage in there that is from Indigenous, English, Scottish, Irish, etc....they most likely aren't in the Acadian Books
Research and Research some more..Just because "every genealogist or every ancestral site declares, some man or woman came over on a ship in the early 1600's, doesn't mean these ones that came over, were "FROM EUROPE, FRANCE, ETC!"...the following is from the Jesuit Relations Archives vol. V ( LeJeune) ... this book as been somewhat translated and is available online
"3 2 (p. IOs).-Maurault (Hist. Abenakis, p. IS) says that the Abe- nakis " were not wont to show their discontent or hatred by oaths or blasphemies. The same thing may still be noticed among them. They have the greatest horror of imprecations and blasphemies; and there are no words in their language to express these, so often ut- tered by Canadians." Cf. Schoolcraft (Ind. Trzöes, vol. vi., p. 682): .. The Algonquin language has no words for the expression of oaths; an Algonquin can neither swear nor blaspheme."
33 (p. 107).-Pierre Antoine, surnamed Pastedechouan (Patetchou- non. or Atetkouanon); a young :\Iontagnais or Canadian, who was taken to France (1620) by the Récollet missionaries, and there bap- tized and educated.
Sagard says that" he became proficient in Latin and French; and, on his return to Quebec , the missiona- ries were obliged to send him back to his relatives for a time, that he might regain his native language, which he had almost forgot- ten. " Captured by Admiral Kirk in 1628, he refused to serve as an interpreter, and soon after escaped. See an account of this youth in Sagard's Canada, pp. 865, 936-938; d. Creuxius's Hist. Canad., p. 110; Shea's Le Clercq, vol. i., pp. 235, 273, 29--1--296. "
We ALL Bleed RED...no matter what our Origins.
MY take on mtDNA and yDNA testing to prove or disprove one is either native or isn't...Being Native is about knowing who you are, defining who you are, thru choices and ways of living, doing, thinking, and carrying foreward. Blood alone ...genetics alone cannot and will not make you suddenly "different" from who you were yesterday, last year, or from time since your birth. Ones who would be "damned" if they found "impurities" outside their French/English/etc bloodlines, those ones that would hide this "kind of genealogical information" to promote only their purest, forms of historical documentation leading back to some possible or make believe or real...royal bloodline in another country...you'd better wake up, because many out there in your own families are pissed and fed up with having these informations that would connect their lines to yours..hidden from them. mtdna or ydna, testing is on the rise, and from the results is coming the conclusions that many knew prior to being tested...Their bloodlines are of "mixed" genetics, Euro and possibly "native" .
For those who have been told.."there is no native in "that line" and then assume this means you have no native blood..you are feeding into what others want for you to believe. Some are failing to tell you the ins and outs of genetic mtDna & yDna testing and the truths of what these tests can show and can't show about your genetics...in either case it is only testing 1 specific line..either father, father father etc or mother mother mother mother etc....this leaves out allllll sorts of grandparents who aren't being tested at all...just think about that for one moment. That is a lot of genetics being left out.
Heres a link to more insight into this from the "native" perspective. 
Source of this information is saved within my own private datas, & will not be made public, as the "Certified Genealogist(s) in question above...are living, highly respected, and in their defense...."they were just creating books of Only Acadian Ancestries....
