Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
You are missing a branch of the Lambert family.
Pierre Lambert m. Marie Doiron along with their children and Pierre Lambert sister Anne m. Joseph Doiron (Yes siblings married to siblings) and their children. All deported to Charleston SC in 1756. Joseph Doiron suffered broken leg working docks in Charleston. Petitioned General Assembly of SC for relief. The general assembly gave aid and sent families to live in Prince Frederick Parish SC.
Anne and daughters died from yellow fever while living and under the care of Charles Woodmason. Woodmason was minister of Prince Frederick Episcopal Church.
Sometime later Pierre left for Louisiana, possibly with some children. His son or grandson Benjamin Lambert was born abt. 1790 in SC.
Benjamin married Arie Faulk. Descendants still live in SC

A few articles about my research families follow
Sang-mêlé All about identity
Sang-mêlé, half-breed, Metif, Acadien Mikmaks, Metis-Acadiens, Half Breed Acadian Indians, Metis, Metive, Mitifs, Mulastres, Créoles, are the many names that have been used to define our ancestors in the eastern part of Canada. There are traces of us in many archives and historical documents. Oral histories have been passed down in many of our families about our existence. We have been collecting the pieces for a few years and we will start to share them here. We are not after “rights”, the goal is to draw an image, see where we are from and how we are connected.
Petitpas, Nova Scotia
I'm not fully certain as to who this “half-breed coureur-de-bois, Pettipas” could be however, I have reason to believe that he may have been a relative of Barthélemy (Bartholomew) Petitpas.
mixed-bloods historically resided along the Eastern Coast of Acadia
mulastres, Nova Scotia, Acadia
(pages shown are handwritten copies not original documents)
(Mirliguèche is not specifically mentioned but ..... I firmly believe that this statement means that the three mixed-bloods involved in the abduction were from the Eastern Coast of Acadia.)
a large number of mixed-bloods historically resided along the Eastern Coast of Acadia pre-Deportation can be found in a July 20, 1711 letter written by Merchant

The Island Register News Subscription Newsletter - May 17, 2019
This Newsletter/Update notice will come to you each week, whenever there is news to report from the Island Register, or from the Genealogical, Heritage, and Historical community on Prince Edward Island. I would sincerely hope that you find it a friendly, useful and fun adjunct to the Island Register Web Page.
This week's newsletter is going out to 1555 people who have signed up to receive it since its first issue in February, 2001. If anyone is receiving this newsletter who has not subscribed, please email me - I will remove you immediately. It is never our intention to send this newsletter to anyone who hasn't asked to receive it. Your email will be 100% confidential, and no questions will be asked. Your address will not be passed along to anyone.
News on the Island Register:
Saturday morning I woke up early and couldn't sleep. I sat up on the edge of the bed as I woke up, and a minute later I heard two baby meows. Daddy, Daddy! Now, Lucky, out youngest cat is huge now, but she has retained her baby meow. I turned around and looked at her, and there she was in the kitchen on a chair with her front arms stretched out towards me. I finally got up and went in to talk to her. She made such a fuss over me! While she is not always so loving, she certainly seems to have needed me at the time!
Update: I found out later that after Lucky was done with me, she went upstairs and did the same with Linda. We are both now wondering if she had had a dream about what it was like before she met us - she remained unusually loving for the remainder of the day. Strange little beasties!

Death Notices From Local Newspapers and Other Sources For the Week Ending May 15, 2019 for Islanders and from "Away" with Island Connections:
This week's update has been made. At any time, you will be able to view all obits from February 1st, 2005 up to and including this week's obits on the web page: http://www.islandregister.com/2017obits.html
As you know I only put abbreviated obituaries in the newsletter for those who had passed away. When specified in the obituary, the address for the funeral home's web page will be given, so you can view the full obituary if still on-line. Act fast to see the original obituary, these are only posted to the funeral home web sites for a short time. Obituary indexes will be updated weekly, in the newsletter, and on the site. If any of you see an obituary for an islander who was living "away" from the Island or who has an Island connection, we would appreciate it if you would pass it on. Thanks!

Island Register - Special thanks to
· All our readers!
Thanks to one and all of our contributors of articles, lineages, information, and other support. Without you, it would be very difficult to keep the Island Register newsletter and website going. You are all our valued sponsors!
Telephone on PEI:
No news this week, other than I finally finished the Centurion payphone I began last spring before my eyes got too bad to work on it. Many parts were missing, and new ones have been located, and it turned out beautifully and works well.
New/Updated Lineages: This listing does not include those lineages which have simply been reformatted, only those that are new, or which have had significant additions.
· No New Lineages!
Please note: All the lineages on the Island Register's Lineage page are prepared by amateur genealogists and family historians - they are a wonderful aid for one's research, but must be used as a guide only - all information should be double checked for accuracy. I cannot stress this enough. Submitter's email addresses are given unless otherwise requested, so that you may contact the submitters for later information on the families, references and sources. If you see a connection to a lineage, or feel you might have one, please contact the submitter using the email link at the top of each lineage so that you can pool your resources!

Please tell your friends about the free newsletter/update service from the Island Register, and tell them how to receive it. Please do not forward copies without asking those you are forwarding them to first whether they wish to receive it. Instead of signing up relatives and those you think might want to receive it, please give them the address for the What's New page, so that they can sign up themselves.
All options for recipients of this newsletter may be changed either by contacting me directly, or by going to the bottom of the "What's New" page on the website and emailing me using the links there. This includes adding or subtracting your email address from the newsletter list:
For any of you who missed previous issues of the newsletter, and who would like a zipped file containing all back issues, please email me. There are getting to be too many issues to send unzipped, but the zipped version may be read with any of the more common un-zipping programs such as WinZip, Pk-Unzip, etc. If you do not have an unzipping utility, I can send the file as a self-extracting executable (.exe) file. It will arrive virus scanned and ready to go.
Please help me out - if you have any notes of interest to the Register's users, P.E.I. Stories, Tales, Reminiscences, interesting tidbits, items for the newsletter, etc., that you would like to share, please pass them along to me so they may be added to future issues! Documents scanned, or in word processor format are preferred, and can be attached to an email, but if you have documents you would like to fax, I am now equipped with a plain paper fax machine - please contact me for my fax number.
I cannot always promise a full-fledged newsletter due to severe constraints on my time, but will always send you the latest updates and notes. Likewise, I cannot always promise a response to each letter, but each and every one will be read and appreciated. I welcome feedback to this Newsletter, and to the Island Register.

I'm trying to clear up a bit of a mystery.
In the 1910 census of Terrebonne Parish, Edward Boudreaux is shown with no
spouse, age unreadable, with children Nilsey (14), Nita (12), Morris (10)
and Elvire (6). Morris was b. 22 Jul 1901 according to his gravestone, and
married Caliscia LeBlanc (d/o Edgar Felix LeBlanc and Caliscia Hebert). But
on Morris’s second marriage (to Louise Emelie Bouvier) on 23 March 1952, he
lists his parents as Alfred (not Edward) Boudreaux and Edonia [sic] Marcel.
To complicate matters further, on the cemetery record for Morris, his
father is said to be "Teman Boudreaux."
I haven't been able to figure out who his parents are -- nor what his
actual name was. I'm guessing he was born around 1877 as that's when
Caliscia LeBlanc was born, but that's only an estimate.
Can anyone help?

Subject: [ACADIAN] Re: Parents of EMMA THIBODEAUX
I found an interesting full-page spread about Myrtle who married an
Anderson fellow, listing all of her accomplishments and activities. It
even has a picture of her in her garden. Near bottom of 1st column it
She is a descendant of Henry Schuyler Thidodaux, [abt. 1769-1827] Louisiana
governor for whom Thibodaux was named, and of Bernard Salles Dessens, first
generation American, born and reared in St. Martinville.
Would you like me to send you the page?
