Le Cousin

November seems to be a time of rememberance. Today we remember my cousin 4 times removed Louis Riel famed Metis leader and the sacrifice he made for his people.  I am related to him through my paternal grandmother Josephine Beauchamp nee Daigneault. The chart is below ( from the St. Boniface Historical Society).

My grandmother married into a family from Quebec who decended from original settlers and voyageurs in New France . I have written about the Fur Traders and Explorers in my family as well as The Spirit of Resistance about the Metis uprising.  I hope will enjoy reading about them.

  1. There’s a possibility a family I’m researching has indigenous roots. Could you tell me which DNA testing Company you think would be best to confirm this? The person who would be tested is male but the possible indigenous connection would be through his mother.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
