Rundquist, March In July of that year, after watching an intriguing documentary about how a Dr. As a participant in this study, I had vigorously scraped the inside of my cheek with cotton swabs twice, once in the morning, and another time at night, sealing the swabs into two numerically encoded vials. The ificance of MtDNA is that it can be used not only to trace our genetic ancestry, but it may also be used to trace the migratory patterns of our most ancient ancestors. The National Geographic Genographic Project, has, in fact, charted the migrations of our ancient ancestors all across the World, and continues to add new information as more individuals are tested in this program.
You can imagine my confusion. I could not imagine striding into an Aleutian village in Northern Alaska and having anyone recognize me or claim me as a long-lost family member. This was a mystery to me, in perhaps the truest and most unfathomable sense of the word. They were as perplexed as I was about our new-found ancestral history, and could not explain the I had received from the National Geographic. However, she recalled that she did have a file, which my Grandmother Asselia had passed along to her before she died, which may hold the clues I was looking for. She promised to locate the file, and, reminding me that I was Celtic, hung up the phone.
So, without any further information to go on, but not about to let the absence of facts stand in the way of perfectly good information, I began to hunt for clues about my Native American ancestry using the best hunting tool around, my computer. I began my journey, where I started, on my computer, at the National Geographic Genographic Project website. I typed in my unique identification , that the National Geographic had issued me when I applied to participate in the project, entered the site, and studied my .
A few clicks later, my had been made public; the world would know who I was and where I came from! When I arrived at the FamilyTreeDNA website, after giving permission to FamilyTreeDNA to share my test with others, I was prompted to enter everything I was willing to share about my earliest female ancestor, her name, for example, where she was from, her known port of departure from her country of origin and her known port of arrival into the United States. By establishing this base of family line information, I was helping the FamilyTreeDNA organization assist others who shared the same DNA test determine common surnames and locations in their own family histories, possibly enabling the discovery of ly unknown family connections.
It simply did not make sense to me that my maternal ancestors would not have come from France or at least, another European country; I could not see how any of us would have been of Native American Indian descent. Although my Grandmother was born in Biloxi, MS, and raised in New Orleans, she had emphatically denied any Cajun associations when I had asked her about it in passing — so much so, that I never asked her about any Cajun people in our family again!
I decided to find out. At my instigation, he has done so and as a descendant of the Cro-Magnon people, he had no surprises. Following this single, fragile thread of information, I began to look for the facts regarding this hidden family line. He was clearly a man of means and well documented for his day.
Chills ran up and down my spine. Octavia Gosselin born October 11th , and desire and understand that said children be legitimated by the subsequent marriage of the aforenamed parties, and that they shall enjoy the same rights and privileges as if born during the marriage of the aforesaid parties.
John J. Celeste would die five years later content in the knowledge that her grandchildren were truly legitimate in the eyes of God, Samuel B. Hall the Presbyterian Minister of the Gospel called upon to perform the ceremony , and the State of Louisiana, and that each would therefore have the opportunity to marry well. For me, the subtext of this story proved more fascinating. About seven miles east of Ponchatoula on Highway 22 are a sawmill and a store. They owned two sections of land situated in St. Tammany Parish on the east bank of the Tangipahoa River. The belief that the landing was named for General Robert E.
Lee is without foundation. On the marriage contract of Harriet Denelle, and her husband Simon Gosselin, Samuel Gosselin, their first baby boy, is listed as born September 8th, Throughout history, parents, especially mothers, always want to help their children get off to a good start — and Mrs. Denelle and the widowed Mrs. In fact, there was so much affinity among the Hubers, Davids, and Heberts of the late eighteenth-century Louisiana that several marriages were recorded among the three during that time frame, including the marriage of Henrique Houwer Huber , son of Andre Ouvre Huber to Angelique David, the Maryland-born daughter of exiled Acadians Etienne-Michael David and Genevieve Hebert, who would give birth one year later to Mary Elizabeth Celeste Ouvre Huber in Jacob, the Huber family patriarch, and his wife Anne-Barbe Schauffine, arrived in Louisiana, from Germany, in about , according to cited references found on Stephen A.
Cormier, solidly employed. She and other Gosselin family members compiled the entire document to define the descent of the Gosselins of Quebec. Asselia perhaps never even read the file. It was mailed to her by Lorraine, probably after Pioneering was completed. At the time of my initial research into my maternal line, I knew little about Acadians and even less of their history. What my Grandmother Asselia did provide me, however sketchy her notes, was the lynch-pin of our Acadian ancestry, the fulcrum on which our Acadian past balanced with our present lives in the United States, the name of Genevieve Hebert, the daughter of Acadians Marguerite Gautrot and Michel Hebert of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia.
My search for the marriage and children of Michel David and Genevieve Hebert yielded stories of forced exile, loss, and desperation, at once sad, horrific, tragic, and unexpected. Family names were no longer verified by researching the burgeoning census and birth records of Louisiana; instead, the family names of our ancestors appear, in long lists, on the registries of sailing vessels. Carrying the few possessions they were allowed to take with them in their hands, our early Acadian families, mothers and fathers, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and their many children crammed themselves on board these sailing vessels, destined for points south and across the Atlantic -after the British showed them a very hostile way out the door of their Acadian home in He and his second family were exiled to France; Michel Hebert died at Sea.
There were stories of exiled young children, toddlers, who, separated from parents who had died at Sea en route from Acadia to France, wandered hand-inhand into French hospitals after disembarking from their ships, only to die in their hospital beds weeks later. Published, first-hand s of this time in our history can be read — but how could they have been lived? Imagine your Acadian ancestors, family-oriented people of the highest integrity and honesty, who knew and wanted nothing more than productive lives as farmers and trades people — wrenched by the British from their lands, livestock, and businesses they had tended and managed with their own hands, their little children in tow, crammed together aboard ships, never to see their homes again.
The heart-sickening trauma and devastation experienced by the Acadian families during their forced exile by the British, described in first-hand s, can be compared only to those reported by the German Jews who survived the Nazi Holocaust. Disembarked in Snow Hill, a small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland the Free State , Genevieve and her husband Michel David, their family and neighbors, would contemplate their future.
Genevieve, who had already lost her mother, would never see her father, Michel Hebert, who had died at Sea, again. But time was precious, and the couple could not afford the high price of grief; Michel and Genevieve had many children to feed, with many more promising to be on the way. Genevieve S. Do not follow her path; her lines are not ours! Indeed, my stomach would not let my research nor me rest. After about two weeks of incessant nagging from my intestinal quarters on this matter, I awoke early one morning, advanced to my computer, and searched again, this time prodding the computer with complex search techniques that caused my high-speed CPU to labor, my fingers to ache from typing and my eyes to burn from staring at the screen.
My stomach told me that I could now pick up the thread and continue my journey back into my ancestral past. Referencing the family records reported on the www. So was the nature of the New World — for many it was a new start, and for the Hebert brothers, perhaps a new identity as well. Genevieve Hebert inherited her ambiguous identity from her father, Michel, who was descended from Etienne, winding his strand among those contributed by her mother, into her family line.
From the early days of Acadian history, the Metisse, with their lively fiddle music and their Native traditions and customs, were the heart and soul of Acadian society, and their hard work and industry drove the region to prosper, which ultimately caused the British to covet their lands to such a degree as to wage war and as victor, drive Genevieve Hebert, her husband and children, their neighbors, family and friends, out of Acadia and into a forced exile. Note: A U6a genetic test result has been found for a participant who reports to be a descendent of Edmee LeJeune.
Spiritually, the Acadians were tightly bound to the Catholic Church. If a couple wished to marry, regardless of their pedigree, it appeared to me that a Catholic Priest was more than happy to officiate at the wedding ceremony. The Acadian economy and the Acadian population were indeed booming. As I counted the s of children had by my maternal ancestors, and considered their relative ages, it dawned on me that my maternal ancestors were truly Olympi in the realm of obstetrics.
If the dates and ages on record were correct, my maternal ancestors produced babies every few years, from their early marriages at eighteen and twenty, continuing well beyond the fragile age of forty and remaining active in this sense until their late forties, or perhaps early fifties. The twelve generations that I explored on my quest for Anne-Marie are unique portals — views into the lives of my maternal ancestors. Other descendants of Anne-Marie are investigating these portals as well, exploring their own family histories, intertwined, yet separate from mine.
I know that my newly discovered ancestors have only begun to tell their stories-and I will have to visit them again to hear more. Tammany marriage records, File 2. James Parish, Louisiana.
