Hello,

For all my distance cousins and relatives: The 1861 New Brunswick, Canada census shows Luc Huguet Lanteigne, Nazaire Lanteigne, Luke Gionnet, Judith (Blanchard) Gionnet and many others as being Native Americans. You will have to check the dates and other info. carefully as the spelling of many of the names are different and some are "nic" names or middle names but there is no doubt.

If you have applied for native status, as an adult, or have native status, please write me. I would like to hear from you.

I too noticed that many of the people in this Census were listed as "Native".

However, I found that this does mean they are of Indigenous descent, they are simply native to New Brunswick (i.e. they were born here).

There are many more connections and records than just the census that prove native ancestry.
