Just wondering what it means to have same dna as a founding mother?

The founding mothers of Acadia were the women who left France and became pioneers of what was for them a new country: Acadia. Today it is known to us as Nova Scotia. So to descend from one of the founding mothers of Acadia is proof of your Acadian ancestry.

... maternal forebears of today's Acadians whether of French or of Native extraction.

My mtDNA Plus results finally came in and they assigned me to X haplogroup which is consistent with my Acadian ancestor Barbe Bajolet. It seems those of her descendants who had subclade testing done received X2b7 as their haplogroup. My results match all of theirs. Interestingly, 23andme's haplogroup testing assigned me X2b and when I put those results in the mthap program it came up with X2b7. However, when I put my ftDNA results in the mthap program it came up with a first choice of Xm'n--a haplogroup I hadn't even been aware of until now. Second choice was X2b and third X2b7.

I just received the results of my mtDNA test. The test shows that my mtDNA sample belongs to the Haplogroup A2f1a. This result supports my research that shows my oldest known maternal ancestor is Anne Marie, a Mi'kmaq woman who was the wife of Rene Rimbault. She would be my 9x great-grandmother.

Hi Everyone, I did my mtDNA and I am U4C1. My direct maternal line is supposedly indigenous, but I don't think U4C1 Haplogroup is related to indigenous ancestry? My last known direct maternal grandmother is named Jeanne Lejeune-Briard and was born in 1659. Although she married Fancois Joseph (Mi'kmaw), I was under the impression her mother was Mi'kmaw as well. Could anyone help me verify that my direct maternal line is in fact Mi'kmaw?

Hi Kyle.. two of Jeanne Lejeune's daughters mt results are Native haplo A. U is not Native so there is perhaps an error in your maternal line. The problem is that we have no proof that François Joseph's daughters were also the daughters of Jeanne Lejeune. She could have been their adoptive mother. So that is a sticking point.

Kyle, I have an exact MtDNA match with at least one Lejeune descendant, and my haplogroup is A2 which is Native.

Hello. I joined this group, because I seem to have exact MtDNA matches with a couple people who have ancestors belonging here, such as Aubois of Port Royal. I cant go through every single member to verify if I am an exact match, so I hoped in joining, the administrators might have a faster way of doing that. My haplogroup is A2 (FMS), with extra mutations. My oldest direct female ancestor is my 3d great grandmother, Lorra Blow of Vermont (m. George Hedding). We can not find any further information about her. Kit# 908236

Help! I am Murray Maloney (IN41520) and I am administrator for my cousin Cathy's kit.(IN43799). Her mtDNA haplogroup is C1c. Kit IN43799 has languished in the Ungrouped category for many months. We have submitted a pedigree and had no follow up questions. There are several other C1c kits that have been grouped under Caplan. There is one C1c kit that is grouped under Olivier and another under David. And there is one other C1c kit that is under Ungrouped along with Cathy's. I am not an expert in DNA or genealogy, so I stand ready to be corrected, but it seems to me that all of those C1c kits should be grouped under Caplan. My understanding is that Madeleine Caplan was a daughter of Guillaume Caplan & Amerindienne Inconnu. Her daughter was Francoise Olivier, and Francoise's daughter was Marie Anne David who married Johann Becker dit Blondin. I was hoping that Cathy's kit would have been assigned to an appropriate group by now, but even though I have written to the group administrators I have received no response. I don't know what we are doing wrong, but I'd like to take whatever steps may be required to get Cathy's kit categorized. I would gladly make a donation if only I knew what amount is appropriate to the situation. Regards, Murray Maloney (IN41520) for Cathy Brochet (IN43799)

While exploring Lucie LeBlanc Cosentiono's wonderful sites today, I managed to learn a lot of Acadian and Quebec history while I traced Cathy Brochet's lineage back to Robert Lévesque & Jeanne Marguerite Le Chevalier. Robert / Francois / Jean-Baptiste / Jean-Baptiste / Ambroise / Ambroise / John Phillippe / Sylvia / Catherine Brochet. Cathy is Lucie's 6th cousin 1x removed. Genealogy sure can fill a day.

Looking for anyone who has a Francoise Hebert and she married her cousin Joseph Hebert. Francoise parents are not known and she is in my maternal line. Many say her parents are Benoni Hebert and savoie but that has been proven wrong with DNA. So any help is appreciated My line Kimla McDaniel MTDNA T2f4 Eloise Lejeune MTDNA T2f4 Oliva Crochet M. Adras Lejeune Marguertie Lopez M. Augustine Crochet Arthmise Landry M. Francois Victorin Lopez Eloise Modest LeBlanc M. Hubert Euphroy dit Godefroi Landry Euphrosine Hebert M. Agricole LeBlanc Francoise Hebert M. Joseph dit Pepin Emanuel Hebert Her (cousin) This couple came to US from deportation from Canada. My latest know grandmother was Catherine Vigue married Pierre Martin. I have not confirmed that but a admin has said she knows it to be true as Stephen White has confirmed it. I just don’t know the ones from Francoise Hebert to Catherine Vigue

I got my results of my maternal line today. I am so pleased to finally confirm my 2nd gr grands as Angele Chiasson and Severe Landry, N.B. The maternal line extends to Catherine Bugaret 1638. This was a long time coming. If this seems tame,it's only because I am still babbling in my head and I'm afraid I'll write something incorrect. WOW THIS IS GREAT. MTDNA ROCKS

Hello Cousins! My name is Nova, the mtDNA results are from my Dad's kit as he is 100% Acadian. Catherine Bugaret is my 10th GGrandmother and my Family Tree Maker program is showing Isabelle (Élisabeth) Petitpas as my 8th GGrandmother :-)
