I am a descendant of Jeanne Marie Kagigoniac, and according to this site her father is Henri Membertou. I would like evidence to support this before I add that to my tree though, so is there any specific proof that can support this? If so, where can I find it? Where did you get the evidence?

Justin Swanström (taking a break)@Justin is the curator for this profile. Tagging him in case he's not seen this discussion thread in the hope that he may be able to help you better than me Brittany. I would like to point out while here that on Geni it won't be so much the case of you adding Marie-Jeanne Lejeune, Miq'Maq but rather of finding where your tree overlaps with this tree and merging it in as we are trying to create one single shared world tree.

Brittany, I'm sorry I can't help you directly. I took over as curator of this profile when another curator resigned and was worried that it (and others) would be de-mastered. The curators had a spirited debate about whether it might be better to let the profiles be de-mastered. Perhaps it would have been. We're still looking for a curator who wants to take over the French-Canadians and Metis.

I suggest you send a message to the other profile managers to see if any of them can cite any sources. In the meantime, I'm happy to make any changes you need, if they are supported by primary sources.

I'm one of the other managers, but I became one through inheriting an abandoned tree in the area, so I'm afraid I can't help either, other than to help edit the profile if anyone finds any new information.

One nice thing about Geni - anyone who is interested in this question will be able to find it no matter how long it takes. All we have to do is wait for the right person to come along ;)

Private User Please see the new thread re: Marie-Jeanne Lejeune, Miq'Maq. I have found some evidence to shows that she is not the daughter of Henri but the grand-daughter. I hope this helps!
