DNA. The Mothers of Acadia Maternal DNA project is conducting ongoing research to verify their origins. In 2010, Stephen White reported Marie Gaudet had a J1b2 haplogroup. I don't know the details re how many of her descendants were tested to support this report. Ongoing test results are also reported here. As of May 2014, 9 descendants have consistently reported a J haplogroup, as have 10 descendants of her sister Francoise Gaudet. J haplogroups indicate European origins.
CENSUS: 1671, Port Royal, Acadia.. Not living with her parents and 18-year-old brother Jehan, listed as widow of Estienne HEBERT, age 38 [so born 1633] with 10 children, 2 of them married. Her worked land is 3 arpents, with 4 cattle and 5 sheep. Living next door to daughter Marie, 20 and son-in-law Michel De FOREST.
CENSUS: 1686, Port Royal, Acadia., age 60 [born 1626?]. Age probably wrong, since youngest child at home is 9 [really 53?]. Name is spelled GODET. She is living next door to her oldest child Marie HEBERT's 6 children, living with her remarried son-in-law and his 13-year-old bride.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Marie by comparing test results with other
carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
M Cole :
Mitochondrial DNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup J1B, Mitosearch 7S3JS
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Marie:
Gaudet-751 and Gaudet-7 are not ready to be merged because: I am not certain these two women are the same person. Although both have marriage to Etienne Hebert in common, and both were born in or near Martaize, France, Gaudet-751 is relying on Ancestry.com trees. Also the birth and death years for each vary considerably. I would prefer that someone with expertise in Gaudet genealogical research look into this proposal for merging.
