My main interest is early French in North America.
You have more in common with each other and Our Quebecois cousins then with "les Americans" or "les English" you have lived nest to all your life. I share cross-list what is of interest to us all.
My families were at Cap Sable & Mirliguaiche with the d'Azy families. I have six Amerindian (MicMaq?) lines
I follow my 2nd cousin 7 generations removed daughter who received script (see below)
Why am I admin of Metisgen & Metis? After Gary "lost" his home Internet connection he would wheel down to the public library to answer question & admin the lists. I became his Assistant to help admin the lists so he could concentrate on answering questions. After he passed I became "acting admin" while we looked for a replacement. After several years, I used the "acting" less & less. Right now we are in the middle of the conversion from Mailman 2 to 3 so we are having many problem you never see but I am dealing with. After this settles down who knows?
My rollcall post was originally written for the Acadian list & not edited to include the other two. Sorry.

Subject: Re: [METIS] RollCall Paul LeBlanc l'Ascension LA
Hello, My name is Nic Couture,
We are part of this group because of the metis thing. Our paternal grandmother was an Acadian metis, and our great grandfather was a white Indian. We are little "m" metis, not big "M", metis. The difference is the Cree thing. We don't do the Michif thing. My maternal grandfather is Sephardi from Colombia. Creole? We speak French, Spanish, and Kanien'keha (Mohawk). We sing the Huron Carol in Wendat only.
We are grandchildren of William of the Kanen'keha, who was one of the original Donne's , and Chief Carpenter during the construction of, the Mission of Sainte Marie Among the Hurons. Tsi yohanwate nitwakenon Wendake (We come from Wendake). Our original name was Cousture, which mean in old Norman French, "a cultivated field". In Wendeke, everybody had to have a name in Wendat Indian. (Saint) Jean de Brebeuf gave everybody names as close to their original as possible. Our last name was a noun and every school-boy knows that all Indian names are transitive verbs (duh!). So Brebeuf took the "s" out of our last name, which became, "to sew", which became our Wendate name of "To sow", or "Eee han deesh" (Ihandich). Our un-original French name of "Couture" is a homonym of our Wendat name, "to sew", and "to sow".
William was captured by the Kanen'keha along with (Saint) Isaac Jogues and taken to the three villages on the Mohawk River in Central New York State, in what is now Montgomery County.
Long story short, the Kanen'keha were so enamored with William that The Keeper of Names awarded him a name of One of the Original Founders of the League. There would have been a wampum belt given to him as well which would serve as "credentials" for the remainder of his life.
William from that point on, was a citizen of the League of the Haudenosaunee.
Skipping several chapters, William was granted permission by the Grand Council of the League to settle the south side of the Saint Laurence River, across from Quebec. No white man to that date in 1647 had ever settled the South Side and lived to speak of it. Pointe-Levy was born.
During the heated battles of the Beaver Wars, most, if not all, of the New France settlements were attacked and devastated. Pointe-Levy was never one of them.
So here we are. Metis. . .or metis, call us what you like. Grandma was an Algonkian and Grandpa was an Iroquois. What a oddity, huh?
Grandson of William of the Kanien'keha (Ihandich, Achirra, and Deyonhekwa)

I would take many meals at a local seafood restaurant.
There is a tradition that the family go out to eat after church on Good Friday.
Some people this was the the only time of year they would eat out.
Because of the expected crowd, they would bring extra help in that day.
Former employee come back to work just that night etc.
One year they were so backed up I started bussing table.
I happen to be wearing one of my white BrooksBrother's "work" shirts.
At the end of the night the owner Madeleine Burk (Bourque?) thanked me by me not have to pay for meals for about a week. She offered to get me a "better" shirt for the next year.
The "girls" all shared their tips with me that night, so I tipped them better until I gave it back.
Would the customers have been surprised to know their busboy was a MBA?
Family Holiday Traditions
We are a little late this year.
Do you have a family tradition or story you would like to share with us that have lost them?
Did MeMa take your favorite holiday treat with her when she passed?
Please share your name for it and a description in case it has a different local name?
We are still looking for a deer neck recipe.
Our cousins in Cheticamp have a mid-lent "Mardi Gras/carnival" celebration. What is it called?
Does anybody celebrate it?
To start it off my Good Friday seafood restaurant story.
If enough requests I will share my "Frying Turkey at Nubbies" story & the how-to fry them yourself.
How are we doing?
We have been up for awhile.
I am sharing a few of my backlog of post every day. Too many or too few?
May I include past event announcements I want to get in the archives?
We no longer get overnight digest. We get them when they fill up. Are they too big? Are they coming often enough? Should I decrease the size so they come more often?
In the past we were limited to plain text for "protection". If we can should we switch to HTML & inserted pictures?

Online U.S. Atlas of Historical County Boundaries
One of the more useful tools for genealogists is the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries created by the Newberry Library in Chicago. When I first started in genealogy, one of my biggest frustrations was trying to find records of ancestors in the county where they lived. Many genealogical records are created by counties. In many cases, I knew the town where they lived and I also knew what county the town was in. Yet I couldn’t find the records that normally are kept in county...

Jim Bradshaw: Many Acadians came to Louisiana from Maryland. AddThis ... It's pretty widely known that a good number of the Acadians who settled in Louisiana came here from Maryland. ... But by 1767, when the Acadians began to flock to Louisiana, life was much better for Maryland Catholics.

From: Sindi Terrien
I found your email address on the Boudreaux Family Association Facebook page. I have an ancestor who has me curious about a few things and wondering if you could lead me in better direction.
Jerome Boudreaux, son of Joseph Marie Boudreaux and Anne Dugas, married to Adelaide Delaune is listed in the 1860 Census living in Attakapas Canal with his children; but in the 1870 Census he is not listed and his wife Adelaide has moved to St. Mary Parish, Louisiana with 6 of her daughters, no sons are living with her. In Southwest Louisiana Records after 1870 when 2 of his daughters and one of his son marries, Jerome is not listed as deceased.
I know that the Civil War occurred during that time period and that Jerome probably did die between 1860 & 1870, but I don't understand why his wife Adelaide Delaune would move to St. Mary Parish about 60 miles from Attakapas. In the 1870 census, Adelaide is "keeping house" and it appears that no family members live nearby. I'm curious as to why Adelaide would go to St. Mary with her 6 daughters and how she is paying rent caring for the household.
Do you have any ideas?
Great-great-great granddaughter of Jerome Boudreaux and Adelaide Delaune

In order to support the reunion, the Acadian Museum of Erath will donate the following:
-an Acadian flag pin to all attendees;
-$50 awarded for the best posters' exhibit prepared by students on the Broussard and Trahan family with the two winners being put on display at the Acadian Museum until the Congrès mondial acadien 2019;
-instructions and materials that can be used to create an Acadian exhibit for school projects;
-the first five new families to register and join one of the two organizations will be given a copy of the biography of Beausoleil—Acadian Redemption;
-the largest family of Trahans in attendance will be given two history books;
-the largest family of Broussards in attendance will be given three Beausoleil T-shirts.
-the family that attends the reunion from the farthest distance will be given a copy of the Queen's Royal Proclamation.
Following lunch, there will be a showing of selected clips from Leonard Forest’s French film (English subtitling was recently added) Les Acadiens de la Dispersion that was filmed in 1966 at venues such as the Abbeville Dairy Festival and the Flying J Ranch. At 1:30, there will be an update by Dr. Mark Rees of the New Acadia Project, the UL archeological search for the lost Acadian settlement and graves of the Acadian pioneers—and progenitors of Cajuns.
All attendees must be registered by April 9th. The cost for the meal and program is $15. For more information, please call Alan Broussard at 337-349-9455 or email Alan.J.Broussard(a)gmail.com or email Cheryl Broussard Perret at perret.cheryl(a)gmail.com.
