Note: The above record has been transcribed to read "Marie Mikmak" however the original record in French read "Marie Sauvagesse" and in 1686 when Marie Aubois married Jean Roy dit Laliberté the only "Sauvagesses" or "Sauvages", aka Natives, living in Acadia were the Mi'kmaq.
Born and raised in Massachusetts to an Acadian father and French-Canadian mother, I have been working on our family history for many years. I began with my mother's side of the family when I was about 11 years old. It was a long time before I knew my father was Acadian. I love knowing my heritage. It gives me a wonderful sense of who I am.
After all these years, you can imagine how many books I have purchased for research. I've decided it is time to part with some of these precious research materials - thus the creation of this blog "Lucie's Book Nook".
