Yes Fran, you have Ojibwe blog…

But you’re not alone…


This picture  was found  on the Internet.
It’s  an Ojibwe  woman carrying  her child.
That’s  exactly  how  Marie  Dufaut’s  mother  looked  like.

Kenogenini  Mentosaky  became  known  as Marie-Louise  Brunelle  when  she was  baptized  back in Quebec.

You  can see the name  Brunelle  crossed  out by the priest  in the  margin when Marie Dufaut  got  married to Antoine  Truteau.


Plenty  of  information can  be  found  if you  can read French  as I  do…

Antoine and Françoise

Brother  and sister reuniting Rose and  moi.

No pictures, just images from parish  registers  or census pages.

I  could go on and on with  all I found about Rose and moi, but I  have invited  Rose as an editor  on my private  Ancestry  tree so she can indulge  in her own ancestors.

Next time, who also has Ojibwe  blood.


To be continued…?

That’s  the problem with this blog.

I  started  it in September  2009, and it refuses to  die  like our ancestors.

Bringing  them to  life, and linking the past generations to the present generations, and the  present generations  to the future ones.


Ancestors  just waiting  for their descendants  in front of their computers  to see how  their  ancestors  looked like…


Émilie  Trudeau 


Henri  Blain 


Marie-Élise  Langlois 

The problem with this blog is that I can’t  stop searching for ancestors, and writing  about them.
